In light of the gig tonight at Midfest in Edinburgh and its new A Pilot Project album, Pilot did a live chat interview on Thursday September 4. Thanks to everyone who participated in the live chat. You can check out the questions and answers here on the reddit site http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/2fgi3j/we_are_alan_parsons_project_musicians_ian Thanks for everyone's support and well wishes. We look forward to a great show tonight.
Pilot will be performing live September 6, 2014 at Midfest in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is the first time in 39 years original members David Paton (vocals, bass), Ian Bairnson (lead guitar & vocals), and Stuart Tosh (drums) have performed together as Pilot. They are joined on stage by Kenny Hutchison (keyboards, vocals) and Calais Brown (guitar, vocals). What a great way to start things off as we approach the 40th anniversary of PIlot's debut album. Rehearsals are underway this week. You can expect a great show with Pilot playing thier classic hits, as well as selections from the new A Pilot Project album. We will have a merchandise table set up before and after the PIlot set. Pilot will come out to the merchandise table after the Pilot set to meet fans and friends.
