David Gilmour is guitarist, vocalist and writer with Pink Floyd, but is also renowned for his solo work. David's guitar playing, singing and song writing were major factors of Pink Floyd's worldwide success, including his distinctive vocals and guitar playing on The Dark Side Of The Moon, the third most successful album of all time. David is one of the all-time guitar greats, with an instinctive and distinctive sound; he was voted 'Best Fender Guitar Player Ever' in a poll in Guitarist magazine, beating such greats as Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. In 2005, David was made a CBE for services to music. In 1996, Pink Floyd were inducted into the US Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, followed by the same honour in the UK in November 2005. In May 2008, David was awarded an 'Ivor' for Lifetime Achievement by the British Association of Composers and Songwriters.
