David's birthday

I’d just like to wish David a very Happy Birthday for today… as I’m sure you would.

Over to you, then.

Have a good weekend, everyone.



    Kushisha Santu DAVE!!!! (Happy birthday in Inca’s languages.)

    Happy Birthday Mr. Dave… I love your music… for me you are the best guitarist of all time… thanks! 😀

  3. Thrasher

    Belated happy birthday wishes to you, David Gilmour!

    Thank you for all your efforts to make the world a better place, and for the inspired notes you shower on those who dare to listen.

  4. Ralph French

    Have a very happy, belated birthday, sir (my youngest son just turned nine on the same date).

    You are the reason I first picked up a guitar so many years ago. Thank you for the gift to the world!

  5. Marcus_Buick

    Oh Snap,

    Sorry I missed celebrating with you David… I’m raising a toast now to your humbled greatness!!! Thank you for everything Mate!

    My Absolute Best Regards!

  6. Roberto

    Happy B-Day Dave!

    Must say this (even if you don’t read it) but Pink Floyd changed my life for the better and the great.

    We are hoping for you to come, visit and play in South America.

    Greetings from Peru!

    Sir David,

    I am ashamed that I have not gotten to this already, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID!! As a fellow Pisces, March 1, I have always felt a certain connection, and from what I have read, we certainly think alike about many things.

    Thank you so much for providing the soundtrack to my life.

    My one major wish in my life was to meet you in person, if not in this life, perhaps in the Great Beyond. My family was very involved in the buiding of your “Lear Jet”, and it allowed me to get enough free tickets to take everyone I knew to see the band, and was lucky enough to see “Dark Side Of The Moon” before its official release. I also share your concern for the environment, and affordable housing for all, it is the focus of my life’s work. Like you, I am doing all I can to change the world, and the way things are done.

    God Bless you and Polly, the world is a better place because of you.

    With Absolute Respect and Admiration,
    Sigmund P Floyd

  8. Dr. Rock

    Mr. Gilmour,

    I cannot begin to tell you how much pleasure your music has brought me these last decades – how much fun I’ve had with your guitar searing in the background, how many adventures you have provided the soundtrack for road trips, etc. I can’t tell you what a comfort your music has been during darker more difficult times.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    P.S. The only irritation :) I feel with you is that you simply do not record often enough! I wish you’d release something once every four months. Then I’d be an even happier man than I am! :)

    Happy belated birthday, Dave! Stay well and keep rocking… hope to see you in the states soon!

  10. KenF

    Belated birthday greetings David.

    I trust you had a great day, with friends surrounded.

    May your ethereal music continue to Echo through the firmament for many years to come.

    Shine on, you Diamond.

  11. Marleen

    A bit late: but I hope you had a wonderful birthday David, with lots of fun, presents, music and cake! 😀

    I really hope we can see you perform again one of these days!

    Hugs from a Gilmourholic

    A very happy belated birthday David. I did send this earlier but it must have got lost in cyber space.

    I have just been reading all the birthday wishes from all over the world and from all walks of life. We all know and respect your privacy, but even you must admit the gift you have is something very special, I’m sure your lovely wife Polly must have told you this a million times.

    Thank you, for your music makes me proud to live in the same land as you. There’s not much left that makes me proud to be British but you and your music does. I don’t hold many people I’ve not really got to know personally in as high esteem as you, hope that doesn’t freak you out, but I’m sure you have heroes as well.

    Have a great birthday, look after yourself and keep strumming.

    Damian :v

  13. Emilio

    Sorry! I was away in these days.

    Happy belated birthday from the heart David!

    And, as always, thank you for all.

  14. Jessica

    I always feel foolish leaving belated wishes, but happy birthday, David. Many happy returns and a toast to you and your family’s health.

    Thank you for every song that was ever in your head that you put outside of yourself for the whole world to hear. What else can one do but be inspired to do the same. :)


  15. Veronica

    Happy belated birthday Mr. Gilmour and happiness always!

    Another year of making good music that we enjoy tremendously and has helped my family through some difficult times. Much appreciated.

    Sincerely –

  16. Dr Phang

    Happy Birthday, David!!! Always look on the bright side of life, mate!!! ;^)

  17. Elaine

    A little late to the party but sending a virtual hug to the man.

    Happy Birthday!!! :))

  18. Rob_P_From_CT

    Happy belated birthday David!!!

    I hope you got to enjoy it with your family and friends. I wish you many many more and thank you for all of the music you have gifted to all of us!

    All the best from Connecticut.

    It’s hard to find some extra spare time nowadays, but I would like to say that David’s birthday was properly celebrated on Polskie Radio 3. There were several tracks from Live In Gdańsk, High Hopes, Breathe/Time/ Breathe reprise, and also both versions of Arnold Layne from RAH and I Can’t Breathe Anymore and Near The End as a 25th Anniversary of About Face release. There were also several parts of interviews with David from 2006 replayed.

    But I would like to say that I found particularly interesting a comment of journalist, who said that during all those years of presenting David’s art both solo and with the band (40 years) in Polskie Radio, he was trying to get a chance to talk to David, and there was no way. But in 2006 he managed to talk 5 times in just 3 months. And he said all we need to do was just wait, it would happen.

    Towards the end of the programme he said: you (listeners) won’t let me out of the building of the radio station if I don’t play this one… Comfortably Numb from Gdańsk of course.

  20. Charie-Kee Jones

    :v Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday Dear David, Happy Birthday to you! And many more. 😉

    For he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow… Which nobody can deny.

    Happy Belated Birthday David. How young are you now?

    I am wearing out Live in Gdansk. Can’t get enough. Thank you for becoming the Master of stretching strings. You are my Hero. Love you.

    Hullo FED and All!!!

    I can’t help but feel a little guilty that I haven’t been able to get on here as much as I used to. I want to convey my deepest wishes to you, Mr. Gilmour, that you have another fantastic year filled with good health and warm wishes to you particularly. I trust that your birthday was filled with joy, peace, and love as you laid with your wife on that night.

    You have given much warmth and joy over the years to me and many others all around the world and I wish that you will be Blessed to spend more years to come here with us. With the grace of God, you give us a gift every time we listen to your music. It brings tears to my eyes particularly when I think of ‘Marooned’. My Lisa & I have made it our song quite awhile back and just thinking of those sonorous notes brings a smile to my face every time when I listen to it.

    Shine On, Kind Sir!! God Bless You and Your Family.

    Cazart ! 😀

  22. Graham Ball


    Just a quick line to thank you for many many years, many many tears, but never any fears.

    Your music flows through my life like time itself.

    Thank you just does not seem enough for the amount your music has meant or done for me in the past. To say it saved my life at one stage is not an exaggeration.

    God bless you and yours.

  23. Hatfield or McCoy

    Uh. Better late than never, eh?

    Listen David, there’s a bunch of us over here in the States just dying to see PF one more time.

    Happy Belated Birthday.

    I’ll personally put up $75 US if you guys come: Mr Gilmour, Mr Mason, Mr Pratt, Mr Carin and the company. :)

    See you in Los Angeles.

    Hello David,

    Your friends and fans here in Buffalo, NY wish you a Happy Birthday. My band will be covering Coming Back to Life, so I’ve been watching your soloing from the Royal Albert Hall gig closely. You’re still my number one gun!

    Dear David Gilmour,

    It’s a nice feeling when you know that someone likes you, someone thinks about you, someone needs you; but it feels much better when you know that someone never ever forgets your birthday. “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”

    A great fan form Nepal.
