Now you've done an album together, do you have any plans to do a tour with Rick "Mighty" Wakeman to promote it ?
Best Wishes

I would love to say yes(excuse the pun) but Rick is drastically cutting back on live work due to health issues, but you never know. Watch this space.

Gordon - what's wrong with Rick? What are the health issues? He is another of my heroes (from my Yes days).

Hi Pete,

I think it has been well documented over the years about Rick's health, and it's not really my place to enlarge on the subject here on a public forum, but needless to say that the rigours of touring can take a heavy toll on many people can't it! I don't blame him for wanting to pick and choose what he does, and my goodness he's earnt it God Bless him.

I googled and read something about him in recent years.
thanks Gordon

Hi Peter,

interesting reading with various mentions of Gordon - even if a bit muddled in its layout date wise! :lol:

It would be great to see Gordan and Rick together live. I started playing guitar 20 years ago and one of my biggest influences was Steve Howe from Yes. After exploring the electric guitar, I picked up an acoustic and started "messing" around with it. That was it then! I found Gordon Giltrap in a guitar magazine and was amazed by his style, it was just what I was looking for!

So thank you Mr Giltrap, you are a real insperation to me!
