    I am so glad to hear that the DVD of Floyd’s last concert has finally cleared all of the necessary hurdles and will soon be released. His last concert was an amazing event and I am so glad I was able to be in the crowd to witness Floyd’s genius firsthand.

    I can’t wait to see this. Congratulations!!!
