Storm Thorgerson ‘grand design’ : Steven Wilson – Hand. Cannot. Erase.
Album of the year : Steven Wilson – Hand. Cannot. Erase.
Commercial breakthrough : Steven Wilson

… so very we’ll deserved. A BRILLIANT album – and to think he is what … only 48 years old – an overnight success !

Pink Floyd had three nominations but won nothing for their album The Endless River, based on unreleased material from sessions for their 1994 album The Division Bell.

… until Wilson came along – Pink Floyd was the single band name that I would use to describe musical taste. Nevertheless – delighted that they did not win an award for The Endless River – it truly just wasn’t up to snuff.
