To celebrate the 66th birthday of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour tomorrow on 6th March, the Official David Gilmour website will be offering for 48 hours a free download of A Pocketful Of Stones. It was written by David Gilmour with lyrics by his wife Polly Samson. That will appear on his official website at 12am GMT 6th March 2024 for your official downloading pleasure!

The song is of course taken from his last and third solo album On An Island which was toured around several countries to much applause. Most notably, he performed to a massive audience in the Gdansk Shipyard in Poland which was recorded and released as a live concert on DVD. If you have not seen the DVD, then you should get yourself a copy (see Amazon UK and USA) as it is excellent. His rendition of What’s… Uh The Deal is possibly the best version I have heard. Wonderful.

So, a big happy 66th birthday to David Gilmour who was born 6th March 1946!

    I love all of Mr. Gilmours work and find that I can’t get enough. I listen to all of it and have for the last 40 years. I realize that when he stops putting out new material that will be the end of an era I will miss greatly. I hate to think of that day coming , I know he has little need to create new material , much less go through the hassles that might be involved. Hats off to you Mr. Gilmour, you are truely one of the BEST !

    A very happy and wondrous BIRTHDAY to a man of genuine talent and class!
    The music of Pink Floyd was a great revelation to me as a kid in the early 70ies, and now all these years later, my spirit truly rejoices to see how you have kept to the true Music Path. It is a true wonder to see that, when so many have fallen of failed.
    Your music saved my life as a young girl it did. I’m ever Grateful.
    Music is Love -- Wishing you the best always, in that realm that is your Home

    R e s p e c t & love -- Happy Birthday, David Gilmour!
