David Gilmour

Jim Irvin, Word, The, September 2007

AS THE 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd's debut album, Piper At the Gates Of Dawn rolls around, it's interesting to ruminate on what became of the plucky psych-poppers who made it. For the clearest gauge on the current state of Floyd, look no further than Remember That Night, a new DVD by David Gilmour, the man often billed as "The voice and guitar of Pink Floyd", who, of course, had yet to join the band when Piper appeared.
