From the recording The Stuff Of Legends
No other band has been more influential to me as an artist than Pink Floyd and David Gilmour is no doubt one of the most captivating guitarists to strap on a Fender Strat. Even though I had seen pictures of them in various music magazines and Rock Pictorial books I had checked out from the library, my first real impression of the Floyd was when a bandmate showed up for band practice with a copy of the newly released “Animals” album with the pig flying above this ominous structure called the Battersea Power Station on the cover. I like to jokingly say that the music that unfolded that night re-arranged my brain chemistry and the opening chord progression to the song “Dogs” is still my favorite all time progression. “Battersea” is my tribute to the mighty Pink Floyd.
