David Gilmour
My technique is laughable at times. I have developed a style of my own, I suppose, which creeps around [...] I don't have to have too much technique for it. I've developed the parts of my technique that are useful to me. I'll never be a very fast guitar player. I don't really know what to say about my style. There's always a melodic intent in there.
Gilmour quotes
I've been in The Who, I've been in The Beatles and I've been in Pink Floyd! Top that!
Gilmour
Where would rock and roll be without feedback?




Gilmour David quotes
The band? It's over. Reunited because of the good cause (Live 8), to get over the bad relationship, and not to have regrets.
Gilmour David
"I like our music to feel three-dimensional. It's about trying to invoke emotions in people, I suppose. You feel larger than life in some sort of way. Let's face it none of us in Pink Floyd are technically brilliant musicians, with great chops who can change rhythms, fifteen or sixteen bars here, there, and everywhere. And we're not terribly good at complicated chord structures. A lot of it is just very simple stuff dressed up. We stopped trying to make overtly 'spacey' music and trip people out in that way in the 60's. But that image hangs on and we can't seem to get shot of it."
David Gilmour quotes
He had developed his own limited, or very simple style. He was never very keen on improving himself as a bass player and half the time I would play bass on the records because I would tend to do it quicker. Right back to those early records; I mean, at least half the bass on all recorded output is me anyway. Rog used to come in and say, 'Thank you very much' to me once in a while for winning him bass-playing polls.
David Gilmour
"There are people who say we [Pink Floyd] should make room for younger bands. That's not the way it works. They can make their own room."
Gilmour David quotes
Usually, in the studio, on this sort of thing ... you just go out and have a play over it, and see what comes, and it's usually mostly the first take that's the best one, and you find yourself repeating yourself thereafter.
Gilmour
Obviously, they're all a gang of idiots. But, you know... live and let live.
Gilmour David
It's crazy that America gives such a paltry percentage of its GNP to the starving nations.
David Gilmour
Syd's story is a sad story romanticised by people who don't know anything about it. They've made it fashionable but it's just not that way.




David Gilmour quotes
Jimi Hendrix isn't as good as me!
