UK & Europe Q&A


Another venue has just been added to the list for Sweden: Torslanda.

That makes a total of 15 Swedish cinemas.

Please click here for full details and to order your tickets.

As you are no doubt aware, David’s new DVD, ‘Remember That Night: David Gilmour Live at The Royal Albert Hall’, will be premiered in Europe and North America next month.

This means 85 glorious minutes from the concert in the technological sweet shop that is a modern cinema environment.

As if that wasn’t enough, it will be broadcast to all participating cinemas, in High Definition, live via satellite from London.

And is if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, David is also going to be performing one live song (on electric guitar) and taking part in a live Q&A… which you can be involved in.

From today, I want your questions for David.

I’ve already had an absolute bagful of questions from fans for the North American Q&A – thanks very much – and the ‘best’ have now been chosen, so please don’t bother sneaking in another one here.

I only want questions for the UK & Europe premiere now.

So, if you’re in Europe, or if you will be going to see ‘Remember That Night’ at one of the cinemas in Europe, do send in a question.

All I ask is that it has nothing to do with Pink Floyd reunions, tribute bands or your demos, and that you keep it short and sweet.

As before, you may only submit one question each. In the interest of fairness, should you send in a list of questions, all will be considered ineligible. Indeed, the only entries that will be considered eligible will be presented exactly as follows.

Please copy and paste the following into the comment form below. You don’t need to give your full name or address. This information will be published for all to see, so please only add what you feel comfortable with sharing, but I do need a real name and region.

Real name:
Town/city, county and country:

I will/will not (please specify) be attending a participating European cinema. (Tell us which one, if you want to.)


You have until Friday 24 August at 5PM (UK) to submit your question. No questions will be considered after this time, so please don’t leave it until the last minute and miss out on this opportunity.

This next bit is obvious, but very important: Please do not send a question unless you are happy to record yourself asking it. Remember that your videos will be played at cinemas right across Europe. Everybody present at this cinema event will see, and hear, you – including David. He will then answer your question.

BBC Radio 2 will also be broadcasting some of the questions on the night, so everyone will be able to ‘tune in’ online.

If you are not prepared to do this, which is perfectly understandable, please do not submit a question.

Tickets are still available for this exciting event, which takes place on Thursday 6 September in Europe. For full details, see previous entries concerning Austria, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK.

There are some tickets left for the UK & Europe premiere at London’s Leicester Square, which is where David will be, but I don’t expect them to be there for long.

If you’ll be going to Leicester Square and want to meet fellow fans before the event, please see details of the meet-up that is arranged from 5PM at the Imperial pub on Leicester Street. Everyone is welcome, so do add your name to the list.

And please do keep clicking the button below to vote this the Best Music Blog. I am open to bribery. (I’m not really.)


  1. Cori Burns

    Memo to Dave Hooks and others above some place.

    It seems that there’s a lot of guys writing comments, questions etc., and not a lot of gals, so I wanted to just wanted to “babe” David, and tell him there are real women who love his guitar just as much as him! Definitely a Sex Bomb!

    Even my African Grey Parrot, of 22 years is called Gilly Floyd Syd Parrot!

    Now that was something worth mentioning!

    Has anyone got pets and they’re called after PF people, tracks etc.

    FAT OLD SUN (Well, that’s gotta be me…..) LOL!

    Happy days!
    Cori Burns xxxxx

    PS: to Fed. Re Chat room. No, my computer won’t let me in as it has a firewall, and it doesn’t seem to accept my name, password or whatever. Shame. Buying a new computer (a Mac) in a couple of weeks. xxx

  2. Mark Lea

    Id just like to mention that David Gilmour and Mark Knopfler inspired me enough to start learning the guitar and I’m a very impatient man.

    This in itself is fantastic and im improving a lot, yet my fiance asks repeatedly “Do you need 11 guitars they all sound the same?”

    Im not sure if its because im doing something wrong that she cant tell the difference between of them or if maybe she’s just not the right woman for me?

    how do you decide which session players are suitable to play on your tour?

  4. Rudders - Toronto

    Mark Lea…

    Don’t worry… my wife can’t tell the difference between mono, stereo and 5.1 surround sound

    It’s a girly thing!

  5. Michèle

    But I’m sure your wife can tell the difference between a man and a gentleman, Rudders.

    I will be attending a participating European cinema. (london!)

    Question: Your guitar playing is like no-one else’s, so what makes you think differently when it comes to composing your riffs and solos to give me, and many others, goosebumps every time?

  7. Tiago Freitas

    Real name: Tiago Freitas
    Town/city, county and country: Madeira, Portugal

    I will not be attending a participating European cinema.


    “Murder” as a Killer guitar solo (2nd best ever, to me, specially live – 1984). Being a solo track why didn’t you play it (along with other solo tracks from your previous albums) on this tour?

  8. Dave Hooks

    [Even my African Grey Parrot, of 22 years is called Gilly Floyd Syd Parrot]

    Cori, I suggest you swap your parrot for a Cuckoo!! See if you can guess why!!! :)

    Just kidding, glad to know you’re a PF nut like the rest of us. You’ve just taken it another level that’s all!!

    Shine on…


  9. Alex Diaz

    i know this Q&A is only for Uk and Europe fans but i just have to ask this question.

    David, i play guitar and you are my main influence. i have recently read in an article that you are mainly a self taught guitarist.

    my question is, is this true and if it is how did you go about teaching yourself and if its not how did you go about acquiring that amazing technique and style you have?

    [I’m afraid that David doesn’t answer questions here, Alex, but it is true that he is self-taught. – Features Editor]

  10. Bob Mitchell

    My name is Bob Mitchell, and I’m from Victoria, Brish Columbia, Canada.

    It is a pleasure to be attending your Leicester Square premier show in London on the 6th of Sept.

    My question.

    David, I have heard you say in an interview that you wish that you had had the pleasure of hearing Dark Side of the Moon for the very first time, like the rest of us have. Your music, and the music of Pink Floyd, is very affecting on multiple levels for the listener. Is there any music or artist that has evoked this response in you, to the degree that your music, and the music of Pink Floyd has evoked in millions of fans like myself?

    Cheers and thanks for everything.

    I will not be attending a participating European cinema. Have tickets for the BBC Proms



    You are credited with the production credits on Kate Bush’s first album and are widely deemed to be responsible for getting her started in the music business. As a lifelong admirer of her musical talent (and, of course, yours!) I can see a wonderful opportunity for creative synergy in both your current musical leanings.

    Are there any plans at all for the two of you to work together and do you (and Polly) still see her socially at all?

    Best wishes

    Good evening David, has once again been deservedly nominated in two categories at the BT Digital Music Awards, for Best Music Blog and Best Official Music site. Your website has continued to evolve since its inception in December 2005.

    My question for you tonight is:- What were your original aims and expectations for your website, have they now been exceeded and if so, in what way?

  13. Brian_Kildare

    [Don’t worry… my wife can’t tell the difference between mono, stereo and 5.1 surround sound]

    Think that’s bad Rudders, my wife can’t distinguish between Dolby, Dolby Pro Logic, DTS, DTS EX or THX!! What’s the world coming to :)

    I will be attending a participating European cinema. (I will be at the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square for the live premiere event on Thursday, September 6th).


    On An Island was largely inspired by the island of Kastelorizo but did any local music or any musical influences typically foreign to the rock genre percolate into the arrangements, song-writing, or any other elements of the final production that became On An Island?

    I will be attending a participating European cinema. (I will be at the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square on Thursday, September 6th for the live premiere).


    Echoes was included in the set of your last solo tour – but only after rehearsals gave you a comfortable vibe… were any similar attempts made to include material from your previous solo albums and if so which track came closest to being added to the setlist on this last tour and, in the end, why did you choose to exclude it?

  17. Philip Heatley

    His fingers delicate flicker over the fret
    Distorted sustained rawness links
    To strings vibrating in the heart
    Emotional narrative echoes off the walls
    Notes bending metal made to cry
    And sing to the world, the hurt
    the pain, revealed for all to sense
    The demons flee his soul with searching sting
    Only to dissipate complex, a sliding recline,
    sentient intricate released and free


    Pink Floyd have inspired me since I was a youth; I am so glad I was around to follow their work.

    I bow to all of them in recognition of their musical skills and wonderful narratives. David Gilmour made me take up the guitar and I gained many hours enjoyment as a consequence.

    I Thank him and the rest of the band for the ability to do this.

    Hello David,

    Me and my Dad are HUGE fans of Pink Floyd and you as an artist. I play guitar and I am inspired by the perfectly crafted solos, melodies and over all style.

    My question is: What would you recommend or advise I do to improve my skills and Musical Range?

    Thank you very much I will be tuning in to radio 2.

    Hope to hear from you.

    Question: How, when and why did you start making music?

  20. Cori Burns


    Cuckoo!??? It’s a shame you aren’t coming to Leicester Square, cos I could have bought you a pint….then thrown it over you head. Cuckoo, indeed…..but at least its a bird!

    Dear All

    Welcome to “Weird or what”! Where weird things happen that make you go “what?”.

    In today’s segment, I just have to tell you something that happened to me today.

    David and FEd in chorus: Must you?

    Me: Yes:

    David and FEd in chorus with Phil Manzanera sticking his oar in!: Oh go on then?

    Me: Right! Well I was in Boots in Nottingham this morning, when some stupid berk trod on my foot and almost broke it…..

    David and FEd in chorus with Phil Manzanera sticking his oar in!: Awwww!

    Me: …so I spontaneously swore in French, …..

    David and FEd in chorus with Phil Manzanera sticking his oar in!: Oh no!

    Me: ….and the girl behind the counter told me to “Take a deep breath” and I said “now” and she looked at me blankly, especially when I laughed.

    Weird or What!

    David and FEd in chorus with Phil Manzanera sticking his oar in!: Can we go now!

    Me: Gee! That Mr Gilmour always gets me into trouble!

    See you all in London.

  21. Gian Luigi Soldi

    Gian Luigi Soldi

    I will be attending a participating European cinema: Leicester Square Empire, London

    Question:Dear Mr.Gilmour,

    Considering that:

    You are well known all over the world and with the deep emotions you are able to evoke, you can speak and come in touch with all different ages.

    Last year in Poland you, together with other people and also with the ex-president of Poland, Lech Walesa, demonstrated at the recurrence of the 26th anniversary of the foundation of Solidarnosc syndicate.

    From some international interviews recently issued, comes out that you are a happy and balanced man, gratified from life and that you don’t believe in God.

    Therefore, according to what I stated here above, I ask you:

    Don’t you think that in your position you have a moral responsibility in front of a world totally on crisis in which there is a deep and general identity lack?

    Don’t you think you can become a universal ambassador to support the civil fight against the deep evils that surround our planet?

    Kind regards,
    Gian Luigi Soldi

    What did surprise you the most (in positive way) during The On An Island Tour?

    DG Management thank you for such a brilliant opportunity and

    Good luck to everyone,

  23. jo

    Wild horses wouldn’t keep me away from my local cinema.

    Please FedEd, a quick comment…

    I lost my best friend to cancer on 10 May of this year. The last 6 months of her life she listened exclusively to David Gilmour solo works and with the Pink Floyd. In her house, or in my car, it played nonstop. She said she loved it and why waste precious time with what wasn’t precious.

    I just wanted to thank the Great man. Since her death I have listed to her top 25 many, many times and it has been such a comfort.

    We both love the words to Poles Apart, the music is beautiful, but I find 1 line particularly relevant now,

    “I thought of you – and the years and all the sadness fell away from me”

    Thank you so very much, indeed. And, thank you FedEd for being our conduit to David and the band.

    jo (Calif, much of the time, now.)

    [I’m so sorry to hear of your loss, Jo. I’m glad that the music helps a little. – Features Editor]

    Hello Mr.Gilmour,you’ve always been my idol not only for your awesome music,but also as a man.Congratulations for this fantastic event and especially for your last two years of great music.

    Have you ever changed your own concept of love and the way to feel it in your life?

  25. Andi James

    What did it feel like playing the solo of Comfortably Numb on top of the Wall during the Wall performance at Earls Court? Were you aware of the height? It blew me away!

    Thanks for the music and influence

    David, it was great to hear you dust down some old classics in Fat Old Sun and Wot’s…Uh The Deal. If your set could have been 10 minutes longer, what other tracks might you have considered performing?

  27. Charlotte

    Sorry if this has been asked before, I’ve had a horrible couple of weeks and haven’t had time to read through the others.

    Real name: Charlotte Eavan
    Town/city, county and country: Nottingham, England

    I will be attending London’s Leicester Square cinema.

    Question: What is the most embarrassing moment that you’ve ever had onstage?

  28. Ubiratam Lucena

    hi david

    if I tell to you that I’m fan of you and pink floyd, I’ll be like millions other fans that you have around the world, what I think funny is: here in Brazil many young peoples ages 16, 17, and they know about you and pink floyd as they were born in 50’s 60’s years, this for me is very good, because I feel like a man who has a very good taste for music

    I saw you at Live Aid (the best show of my life) and I would like to see you here in brazil


    congratulations for all your music, your job

  32. Chris Royle

    Real name: Chris Royle
    Town/city, county and country:Frome, Somerset, UK

    I will be attending the Leicester Square shindig.

    I recall reading that you have to be careful when a ‘new’ riff falls out of your guitar in case it comes from something that you have heard somewhere before. Do you feel that there is a finite number of ways to produce a good riff and that we are rapidly reaching saturation point?

  33. Andreas Fahrni

    Real name: Andreas & Karin
    Town/city, county and country: Zurich, Switzerland

    We will be at Leicester Square Empire, London.


    Hello David Gilmour

    We would like to ask you if – in planning of the Tour 2006 – Switzerland was also a location you tought about for a concert? If not, why didn’t you decide for a concert in Switzerland?

    Thank you so much for the memorable concerts and all the best for you, your family and all the parties of the “On an Island” Tour 2006!!

    Karin & Andreas from Switzerland

  34. Alan Towler

    I will be attending the London Leicester Square Odeon

    Question: David, when you next tour, is there a chance that you will include a song from the “Obscured by Clouds” Album? Seeing you play “Fat Old Sun”, from “Atom Heart Mother”, made me think that there were other songs from the early ’70s that you wrote in that style.

  35. Olivia


    I do have a question I would like to post but how am I ever gonna hear his answer unless I go to the show? Are you planning to put some of the questions and David Gilmour’s answers on this page, after the event?


    [Yes, we will have the text, at the very least. – Features Editor]

    I will be attending a participating European cinema. In Amsterdam, Tuschinski Theater.


    David, when I listen to your music on the On an Island album I hear pain as well as victory, the words are clear but do the stories of your guitar tell tales of earthly destruction, the path we have to take to make the world right again and the victory of awareness that more and more people are getting that we have to act on it ?

  37. Dave Hooks

    Quote: ‘Welcome to “Weird or what”! Where weird things happen that make you go “what?”.

    Cori, you really haven’t done yourself any favours in convincing me you are not ‘cuckoo’ after that little story!

    I have to say it has been a while since a girl threatened to throw a pint over me – I must be losing my touch… or regaining it depending how you look at it!! :-)

    I’m just playing with ya – don’t take it to heart! Just found your parrots name amusing.

    Believe it or not, I have a dog called ‘Set the controls for the heart of the sun’! Imagine the fun I have trying to call him in?????

    Dear David,

    after the mesmerizing sights and sounds of your OAI gigs in Frankfurt and in the London RAH last year we returned home with the feeling as if we would have spent a holiday weekend on a Mediterranean Island. So as your music is so spellbinding that one’s mind is taking off for a flight of fancy I´d really like to know, where in the world are you getting your inspiration from, and which music is helping you to boost your imagination and mood?

  53. Abhi Taranath

    Hi FEd,

    I’ve already left a question for David on the North American Q&A.

    Being that there are so many fantastic questions that people have asked on this UK/European Q&A (Brian Kildare’s “Echoes” question, Daniel Henry’s “Waters’ DSOTM Tour” question, and the various inquiries about the incomparable Gilmour/Wright musical interplay seem to stand out the most to me), will the questions that David answers eventually be posted on this website after the event?

    [Yes, we will have transcripts from both premieres, if nothing else. – Features Editor]

    I was totally bowled over when I first saw Pink Floyd – Live in Pompeii. Who came up with the concept of playing to an empty amphitheatre?

    It has such an unusual quality, but at the same time lends itself beautifully to the music.

    Unfortunately not attending a cinema..

    David Gilmour, suppose you’re invited for dinner at the house of a good friend who happens to be a good cook, famous for his desserts. The feast starts. The first course is very tasty, the next is even better and after the third, you feel quite full already. Now here comes the question:

    WHAT WILL YOU DO? I have three options:

    1. You are disciplined enough to eat less of each following course and, by this means, treat yourself to at least some bites of the dessert without getting sick.
    2. You display even more discipline and ignore the dessert, the best part!
    3. You end up feeling stuffed and sick after the dessert because every course was
    so good you just had to finish everything off.

    I know this seems to be a long question but it actually only consists of 4 words ;o)

    I thought this might be a more entertaining way to tackle the question “Are you a disciplined man when it comes to pleasure and indulgence?”, which is the core of my question…

    Thank you!

    Thank you to everyone who sent in a question.

    If you didn’t, then you’re too late. The deadline has now passed and no further questions will be considered. (Sorry!)

    We’ll let you know which ones we’ve chosen for both premieres soon.

    Have a good weekend, all.
