Happy 70th Birthday David Gilmour

I have always been a David Gilmour fan. I love his glorious Pink Floyd guitar solos, which laid the grit and soul of the blues on a bed of European prog majesty, though I tend to prefer his own records, with their straightforward lyrics, his choirboy vocals, and supporting players like Pino Palladino, Jeff Porcaro, and Andy Newmark. Here he is six years ago in all his undiminished glory: that tone, that vibrato, the awesomely cool black Strat. As a bonus, that’s Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera taking a solo as well.
