David Gilmour - most influential guitarist? Print E-mail

This coming Sunday (May 28th) sees the culmination of radio station Classic Rock Q107's worldwide poll to determine the most influential guitarists of all time. David Gilmour is in the running for top spot for his guitar work over the last four decades for Pink Floyd, and his own solo material.

In the show on Sunday night, at 9pm, the Toronto, Canada based station reveals the top ten guitar legends - and David is amongst them. Q107 invited music fans around the world to vote, and the response to the poll was overwhelming. It even grabbed the attention of Gilmour - his official website highlighted the series and gave visitors instructions on how to participate.

Our thanks to Andrew over at Q107 for letting us know about the show. We know many of you enjoy these sort of polls... If you cannot tune in on your radio to Q107, the show is also available on Corus Radio Classic Rock affiliates across Canada, and via the website.
