Thought you might like to know that, yesterday, David recorded a television programme for the BBC at his Astoria houseboat-studio.
Presented by Alan Yentob, it will make up their history of the guitar.
It will be broadcast in three parts. David will appear in the final part, which is about contemporary guitar heroes and their approach to the instrument.
Among others being interviewed are two of David’s very own guitar heroes, BB King and Hank Marvin.
That’s all I can tell you for now, but I will keep you posted. It’s far too early for a title or transmission date, of course, but please don’t expect to see it before January.
Although I can’t say which guitars David will be discussing on this programme, he did have his famed 1954 Fender Stratocaster (the one with the 0001 serial number, last used at the Strat Pack concert in 2004), his black Strat (used extensively during the recent ‘On An Island’ tour, and the one that the nice people at Fender are currently producing as the David Gilmour signature model), and his 1955 Goldtop Les Paul with him at the time.
As has been the case for a while now, the above picture is taken from David’s live DVD, ‘Remember That Night’, which is released in September. Click it to see a larger version.
There are many more screenshots to come – glad that you’ve been enjoying the ones shared so far.
Our chatroom is currently open and will be until 4PM (UK time).
Unusually for a Friday, that’s not all for this week. I’ll have more over the weekend, as I’d quite like to burden you with details of the aforementioned DVD, plus one or two other things.
You don’t mind, do you?
