Dave absorbed in the moment while playing

The worst gig I ever did (Sorry Mary)

' I was able to get 2 Artist AAA laminates, one extra one for my great friend Liam, who had to go around, also as Dave Hingerty. He was enjoying that I can tell you. Free booze backstage, and hanging out with, and having breakfast and dinner in the same room as, the likes of Lou Reed and Nick Cave, and making up tall stories to people who thought he was me'.

Jamming with Chris Martin!

The weirdness of making drum notes (on a session that I had a suspicion I wouldn't be doing).

'So, I’m upholding that promise and will learn the songs even though another drummer is doing the gigs presently. Madness I know, but I actually enjoy it. Headphones, great music, drums, pen and paper. Heavenly'.

Narcissis and ‘The Click of Death’

‘I felt responsible to everyone involved in the making of this, not least Mark, who had to sit in a bath for an hour in a yellow mac that day and sing bubbled lyrics into the water, surrounded by 14 rubber ducks’.
