Biography

Dave Kilminster (born 25 January 1962, England) is a British guitarist, vocalist, songwriter and music teacher. He is mostly known for touring with Keith Emerson (since 2002) and with Roger Waters on his The Dark Side Of The Moon 2006 - 2008 tour, performing much of the guitar and vocal duties that are originally David Gilmour’s. He also played alongside with John Wetton (ex King Crimson), Ken Hensley (ex Uriah Heep), Qango (an Asia spin-off), The Nice, and Carl Palmer.

Dave Kilminster began playing piano at an early age and later, in 1976, he chose to play guitar; during his youth he also experienced singing in a barbershop quartet, which gave him a strong background for future involvement as a vocalist.
In 1991 he won the award ‘Guitarist of the Year’ in a competition run by Guitarist Magazine with the instrumental Sundance; at that time he was working on computers for IBM. Shortly after, Kilminster was asked to teach at the Guitar Institute in Acton (London), despite being a self-trained musician. This also involved writing exam material and courses for Trinity College and Thames valley University.
Kilminster is now a teacher at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guilford and also with Guitar Break who run weekend guitar events around the UK. He has launched a series of instructional DVDs for Rock Road’s Licklibrary after the success of his global satellite series, named Killer Guitar. Kilminster has written over 200 articles for Guitar Techniques magazine.
