    Gilmour, David (6th March 1946-Present)

    He is a guitarist and singer-songwriter born in Cambridge, England. His father was a lecturer in Zoology and his mother a teacher.  He met Syd Barrett while still a child in Cambridge and when he was a student at the Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology they played guitar together.  He was with the band Jokers Wild and then he toured Europe with Flowers and later he was a member of Bullitt.  He became a member of the group Pink Floyd in 1967 as a singer-songwriter and guitarist.  Their album Dark Side of the Moon is the third most successful of all time.  From 1978 he was also working on his solo career and he produced two albums David Gilmour and About Face.  After Roger Waters left Pink Floyd in 1985 he took control and they released the No. 1 hit albums, in the US and the UK, A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell.  In 2004 he donated the #3.6 million proceeds from the sale of his house in London to the homeless charity, Crisis, and in 2005 he was awarded a CBE for his services to music.  As a collaborator and studio musician he has worked with artists including Paul McCartney, Kate Bush and Pete Townshend.   He has been nominated for a 2007 Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance on the song "Castellorizon" from his album On an Island.
