David Gilmour

 

David Gilmour was born in a town called Cambridge on 6th March 1946. and when he was growing up what he listened to was rock music from "Rock Around The Clock" by Bill Haley and the Comets and Jailhouse Rock. David Gilmour is now one of the most poular guarists in the world. Not only is he a great guitarist he also has a great selection of Fender guitars all in cluding Strats and Teles.

Later in 1967, he was invited by Syd Barrett to the Sound Techniques studio in Chelsea, London to see Pink Floyd record their second single hit song, "see emily play". Sadly Syd Barrett, the original lead gutarist, was experimenting with LSD. After Pink Floyd’s first album, Piper at the Gates of Dawn, Gilmour was then asked to take Barrett's place in the band by drummer, Nick Mason. Then the bands next album was then called A Saucerful Of Secrets, featured both Gilmour and Barrett, but they did not play together. Before long he started his career as a lyricist for the upcoming new band. Not to long after that the band is comming together and starts making hit after hit. Fourteen years later the band starts to crumble and Roger Waters and Gilmour are left. But soon Gilmour releases his second solo album, About Face.
