Ian and I met onstage in London during the recent UK Tour with A Flock of Seagulls, and instantly hit it off. His focus on rhythm, compassion and musicality brought forth conversation about his work for decades with Pink Floyd, Paul and Linda McCartney, Duran Duran, Ridley Scott and so many more. Ian shares some fun peeks into what conversations with David Gilmour and Roger Waters consist of.
We were joined by my pal Ken Glynn, who was inspired by early works by Mr. Emes, and brought inspired conversation about the concepts behind his work. Discussions of what we can do as citizens of the planet to voice our support for causes like global injustices, why creativity is so important to bring us together in life, and how technology can help shape that connection.
