Harry Somers - guitar and sax
Harry has been playing guitar (strictly rhythm) in originals and covers bands for over 25 years, and started playing sax about ten years ago, on a whim. Apart from the songs which feature Dick Parry's distinctive horn playing, Harry sees his job in Pinked Floyd as supporting the lead guitarist: there's no jockeying for the limelight here!
Away from music, Harry took early retirement from his job as a university professor a few years ago, is married with two grown-up sons, and is a keen Everton supporter,
travelling to all the games, home and away!
