My Prog Hero: Grant Nicholas on Pink Floyd
The Feeder frontman admits it’s not a case of us and them when it comes to his passion for Pink Floyd.
“I grew up in a small town in Wales where there wasn’t much else to do apart from listen to music or be in a band. A lot of my friends were into rock so we would listen to anything from Yes to King Crimson, but it was probably my old friend Brian Sperber who first got me into Rush. He works as a sound engineer now and, a few years ago, he asked me if I’d like to come and have dinner with Alex Lifeson. We had a really good meal with lots of wine and we ended up going back to his hotel room to chat. We stayed up until daylight and then he had to get a plane because they had a gig that evening. It was pretty rock’n’roll and he’s a really interesting guy.
