David Gilmour smilingOur very best wishes to David Gilmour today, who will be celebrating his 65th birthday!

Born and raised in Cambridge, David became involved with various bands in the area, principally Jokers Wild who were a popular draw when they played, before joining Pink Floyd in 1968. More recent years have seen David concentrating on his solo career, and helping out chums on their musical projects on an ad hoc basis - most recently, appearing on stage with Phil Manzanera at the legendary Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, with Amadou & Mariam at the Crisis "hidden" charity show, and with Jeff Beck at the Royal Albert Hall.

With it being now five years since the release of his last solo album, "On An Island", many people's thoughts are on whether we might see a follow up to that. Recently, Polly Samson revealed that one of the things she will be working on are some lyrics for David, so that bodes well!

Many happy returns, David, on this special day.
