One of the most underappreciated members of Pink Floyd, like the other members other than Roger Waters. One of the most amazing guitarists around with a very distinctive style and underrated solo stuff. He also was the voice and influence that made Pink Floyd a much more publicly successful band that joined up when Syd destroyed himself on drugs. Also not an asshole, because he didnt go on a power trip and kick out a member of his band and threaten to take away all the stuff he'd written if that member didnt leave. Listen to a few off his 1978 self-titled solo record, especially if you're a guitarist, and you will understand. Just imagine "Wish You Were Here" sung by Waters, and you get the picture.
Guy: Man, David Gilmour really kicks ass at just about everything musical!
Me:Hells yeah!

Guitarist for Pink Floyd. He took over the guitar duties after Syd Barrett went haywire with drugs. Known for his toneful solos, fantastic bends, and great vibrato.

Jim: Fuck off man, David Gilmour is shit

The extremely talented guitarist from Pink Floyd, who is often overlooked despite his awesome playing. Some of his best works can be heard in the songs "Comfortably Numb", "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", "Dogs", and "Echoes". His style of playing isn't as fast as some of the other guitar greats but he is one of the most passionate players, as can be seen at live concerts.
David Gilmour's guitar solo in "Dogs" is awesome.

One of the best guitarists of all time. Has one of the most unique guitar tones ever and a better voice than Roger Waters. He wrote the albums Wish You Were Here and Animals. Likes drugs.
Roger Waters is a skidmark on the underpants of David Gilmour.

One of the several reasons why I want to play the electric guitar.
David Gilmour is my inspiration (as well as other ones too).
He can play those sounds with passion!
