Another new song from Gilmour, Waters guitarist Chester Kamen

We recently told you about some new music from respected guitarist Chester Kamen ( Amongst many other artists, Chester has toured with Roger Waters, joining his band in 2002 and playing on subsequent tours, and with David Gilmour on his 2016 Rattle That Lock tour. He first played with David back in 1985 during the Live Aid show – David and Chester were both part of Bryan Ferry’s band for that show (as was Jon Carin). Chester has, like many musicians, kept himself busy whilst lockdowns and restrictions due to Covid-19 have called a halt to many things – in particular, live performance. In October, he shared his recently finished new piece of music called Take This, that runs for over 23 minutes. Chester told us that Take This is the first side of an album he is currently working on – following, or inspired by, the old Floyd blueprint of one long piece and several songs on the flip side. Last month saw the first of the songs on the second side of the album: Brand New Day. Chester has now uploaded the next track on the album to YouTube. It’s called Swimming and features an appearance on bass by Felix Howard, who is Roy Harper’s son. Chester tells us that “this one is a bit darker, reflecting my state of mind at that time.” We’ll update you as he progresses with the rest of the album, as we know that a good number of you are enjoying the songs revealed so far!
