David Gilmour, David Bowie and Harry

What a perfect time for my friend Doug to discover this gem and send it to me!  I've got tickets to see David Gilmour at the Royal Albert Hall in September and I hope he does 'Comfortably Numb' as it's my favourite track ever.

David Gilmour and David BowieI really can't really think of another singer whose death will fill newspapers and TV programmes like David Bowie's, except perhaps Bob Dylan's. The importance of Bowie and his music through the 70s, 80s and 90s is fully realised right now by the extraordinary coverage his passing has brought about.

My first encounter with David Bowie was in 1974 when I returned to these shores after travelling overland from Australia. I saw Top of the Pops for the first time in three years and there was a bloke in a skirt - Ziggy and the Spiders from Mars!. I have lots of David's music on my iPod.

Here at Harry May Boat Trips, we're trying to get our boats ready for the new season starting around the early Easter. Lyme Regis mackerel fishing and Lyme Regis deep sea fishing trips, heading out from Lyme Regis harbour, will be ready to go by late March, even though the rain may have different ideas.
