    What about his creativity?! This artist is certainly a talented musician, who travels in distant worlds through his imagination not only himself, but takes with him in a tour his audience ... Without those musicians, who don’t restrict visibility of the world, our lives would be much poorer and more boring.

    I think that tune could easily have found its place on Meddle...

    Apparently Gilmour is in the studio (finally) for the next solo album.

    Do this as soon as you are born, followed by about another 455, 000, 000 more and lo............ you will be around 70 years of age, give or take a year or two.

    The picture is completely incongruous with Gilmour's current look. Which this song is from the current era.

    Nice guitar work but a little dark for my tastes.

    Ich kann mich noch gut an seinen letzten Live- Auftritt in Hamburg erinnern. Welch ein Druck bei diesem Stück. Herrlich. Danach konnte man schön abhusten. Take A Breath ebend !
