Spock's Beard at the Mean Fiddler

Four members of the BBT team converged on London last Sunday for the Spock's Beard gig. It was a splendid show and Nick, Dave, Alan and Ryo are very fine fellows indeed. It was also a pleasure to meet Chris Squire, who was in attendance as Ryo's guest, and a number of Big Big Train supporters.

Rob Aubrey was the sound engineer for the gig and kindly played Perfect Cosmic Storm and Pick Up if You're There as the pre-gig music. Greg's photographs above show Nick D'Virgilio silhouetted under spotlight at the afternoon sound check, Rob Aubrey (also in silhouette) in his cage during the show, Rob and Andy deep in conversation about the size of the knobs on Rob's mixing desk, Ryo Okumoto and Nick sharing a serious moment during the gig, and Alan Morse and Dave Meros in full flight.
