Just noticed - doesn't Ferry bear more than a passing resemblance to the late great grandmaster Bobby Fischer? (wonder if he pushes the wood at all?)

Oh yes!

Where to begin? Lately, I'm in love with this folk tune, which I have posted in the "global village folk" thread:

But since Pink Floyd were mentioned (my favourite group), a few of theirs:
[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5_0iZQ-TuA"]Pink Floyd - Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun - YouTube[/ame]

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdGyQ_vUxQs"]Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond [Parts I-III] (Studio Version) - YouTube[/ame]

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPL_SV3n7IU"]Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here (with lyrics) - YouTube[/ame]

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXCRIqdbe6I"]Pink Floyd - Pigs - YouTube[/ame]

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bpzxf_flm8M"]Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb - YouTube[/ame]

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktQ6EkeJ2sE"]Pink floyd waiting for the worms - YouTube[/ame]

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2e-yO6_FbtI"]Pink Floyd Final Cut (11) - The Final Cut - YouTube[/ame]


I could go on and on with Floyd songs... just a story about "shine on you crazy diamond":
As a child I was listening to it, while my father was asleep. It was noon time, and I got carried away by the music, pumping up the volume. My father awoke, and instead of berating me, he said "how amazing this music is, I thought I was still dreaming and listening to it in my sleep". Ever since, this perfect threshold between dreams and reality, became one of his favourite songs...and I was asked to play it again and again, to the point that it was my father who started to annoy me.

No I don't think so. And "pushes the wood" sounds a bit crude btw
