Since December 2005, one aspect of David Gilmour's website ( was updated on a daily basis with information on his forthcoming solo album "On An Island", and the accompanying tour.

The fascinating "blog" (aka weblog) has had news and information posted each day, along with an exclusive picture from the sessions taken by David's wife Polly. Whilst some of the pictures are of David, others are of the various musicians who are involved with the project, and as each day passes, little bits of information appeared which built a bigger picture of the line-up!

The list below is of all the musicians we currently know of, that were involved in the recording sessions for David's album.
