Lovely tone! I bet you'e vey proud of him, not just proud....

Rather far fetched from Floyd... Is that him in this clip with Snake Davis?

yep, thats our Ben on stage with Snake , he first played on stage with him at a venue in brum when he was 15 ( I have never been on stage with him )
ok so how did he get to know Snake Davis ,well he was early teens when he heard one of snake recording and started to copy his style and recording himself at home then unknown to us he started sending then to snake , it took some time but eventually got a reply (snake was so kind and helpful ) in the end he invited us to a gig he was doing and told Ben to bring his sax (now on tenor ) they had a quick rehearsal during the break then in the second half got him on stage and have been friends ever since and are still in touch now even depping for him on occasions

A lesson for us all I think ...... Go for your dreams

Wow, an excelent player. I've been following Bens progress with The Spirit of Pink Floyd, as I too play with a Floyd tribute band (I have to say that ours is nowhere near as pollished as his)
Like everyone else said, you have every right to be proud.

Jules, patience! Your time will come!
