Happy Birthday

The blog calendar rather than my increasingly blurred memory informs me that many a blogger celebrates a birthday this month, so I’d like to express a joyful “Happy Birthday!” to Stephen for today, to Susan and Thomas for tomorrow and to everyone else who will be observing the anniversary of their birth thereafter; including David, it goes without saying, whose birthday is on Saturday.

As I know that you’d like to do the same, because some of you have already started, I’ll let you get on with it.

My thanks, on David’s behalf, for the well-wishes.

If you’d like to continue discussing the illustrious John Peel and the great many Peel Sessions of note, you are very welcome to do so (but here, not here, please).

  1. Happy birthday to all our dear FEd addressed, and especially David! I wish you all health and peace.

  2. Happy Birthday David and Happy Birthday to everyone this month!!!

    I absolutely love the remixes on the website–some of the paired down tracks. The last time I logged in I was sitting there for a minute thinking, “What the bloody hell is that marvelous noise?” I didn’t recognize the remix.

    For David’s birthday: I wish that his muse strikes him with complete clarity–that he finds his way with all those Syd tapes he has put on his computer (finishing something like “She Was a Millionaire” will either be something extremely easy or difficult, depending on his muse. In either case, I’m thrilled Mr. Gilmour is thinking about tinkering with them–and I have no doubt he will succeed in creating something beyond wonderful.

    I’m just thrilled he’s got some time to get busy.

    I wish David a year free of any new draining business matters, a year free of lawsuits, a year free of any troubles, so he can just do the magic he does when he sits down with his guitar.

    We all love you David!!! Happy Birthday and have a fantastic year!!!

    P.S. I hope that David adds extra lyrics and his voice to “unfinished” songs, like “She Was a Millionaire. I hope he doesn’t just add some guitar here and there… I’d love to hear the blend of voices. I’d just love it!

  3. I just wanted to wish David Gilmour a Happy Birthday and I also wanted to wish Susan, Stephen and Thomas a Happy Birthday too. I hope everyone will have a great and safe weekend.

    Plus Fed, I found Link Wray and the Raymen’s first album and it’s in mint condition for a price you wouldn’t believe – $2.00. Isn’t that great?

    Take Care, Thomas

    1. ‘Lo all.

      Enjoy your purchase Thomas! If Hydrea can send a Cake – it does look nice – can Thomas and I share a tune with Mr “G” on his special day? If he is passing by this way – click here.

      It’s better than that “Happy birthday” tune! That’s too old hat, once you reach a certain age.

      Happy Birthday to Lorraine too.

      Good weekend all!

    2. If Hydrea can send a Cake – it does look nice – can Thomas and I share a tune with Mr “G” on his special day

      Mike T, thanks to enjoy my David’s Cake. :))

      Happy Birthday to all bloggers this month. 🙂

      Bye, Hydrea

  4. Happy Birthday David Gilmour.

    This weekend I will watch David’s latest DVD. It brings me back great memories. I saw David live in Hamburg, March 11th 2006. Time flies.

    Happy Birthday to Snowy White (March 3rd, 62 years).

    I’ve seen him live with Roger Waters a few times. He is also a great guitar player.

  5. Just want to send my Happy Birthdays to all the above mentioned.

    Have a good one, and quite simply, Happy Days!

    All the best,

  7. March, 6th.

    This is for you, Mr. David Gilmour (I suppose, the shortest Italian poem):

    MATTINA (Morning)
    G.Ungaretti

    M’illumino
    D’immenso.

    I flood myself with light
    of the immense

    I think about the Venice concert of August 2006 very often…”then I close my eyes” and I can imagine you, Rick and the band vividly. I do this periodically in order to keep the images clear and sharp. The pictures in my mind have warmth, sounds and movements: treasures I cannot afford to lose.

    God gave a gift to the world when you were born; a person who spends energy on others, who touches each life he enters and fills the hearts with your own music and voice and makes a difference in the world.

    Bless you. Happy Birthday!

    Ciao/goodbye
    Elisabetta

  8. Happy birthday, David. Hope you have a lovely day. I hope the sun shines for you.

    Love

    Julie, Kevin and Imogen

  9. Hi FEd,

    I wish share with you and all bloggers my David’s Cake.

    I prepare it with love and I hope you enjoy it.

    Please, could you leave me a slice? :))

    So, have a Great Birthday tomorrow, David! 🙂

    Bye, Hydrea

  10. Happy Birthday to Susan and Thomas! Big bisous to you both. 🙂

    I wish everyone a very good (sunny?) weekend.

    And many thanks to FEd for keeping the chatroom open all weekend.

  11. For David… have a wonderful birthday, I can’t believe another year has gone by! Nearly 4 years since the Royal Albert Hall but we will always Remember that Night!

    Have a great day.

    Best Wishes
    Heather and Phil

  12. Happy Birthday Mr G. Still 4 years older than me. I keep trying to catch up, but you keep leading the way.

  13. …and a very happy birthday from me too. 🙂

    And a link, for those who need a smile… it’s not so much the song as the video. What imagination.

    Enjoy the weekend
    Lene

    1. Lene:

      That was great. Enjoyed the imagination and must have been hard work to set all that up.

      Jan

  14. Wow, what a packed Birthday Calendar this month.

    Happy Birthday to everyone, especially to David and to Lorraine.

    Cheers,
    Ralph

  15. I’d like to wish David a very happy birthday tomorrow! 🙂 If not for you…

    So to David, Susan, Stephen, Thomas, and my 3-year-old grandson, Rowan, whose birthday was yesterday, I’d like to share these lyrics by Bob Dylan while you blow out your candles:

    May God bless and keep you always,
    May your wishes all come true,
    May you always do for others
    And let others do for you.
    May you build a ladder to the stars
    And climb on every rung,
    May you stay forever young,
    Forever young, forever young,
    May you stay forever young.

    May you grow up to be righteous,
    May you grow up to be true,
    May you always know the truth
    And see the lights surrounding you.
    May you always be courageous,
    Stand upright and be strong,
    May you stay forever young,
    Forever young, forever young,
    May you stay forever young.

    May your hands always be busy,
    May your feet always be swift,
    May you have a strong foundation
    When the winds of changes shift.
    May your heart always be joyful,
    May your song always be sung,
    May you stay forever young,
    Forever young, forever young,
    May you stay forever young.

    Peace ‘n’ love to you all 🙂
    Gabrielle

    1. It was the big 50th for me, I enjoy getting older, probably because I am young at heart… forever, as a matter of fact!

      Thank god for Dylan.

    Best wishes to you and all the other birthday kiddies!

    Best wishes to you and yours, and although it is your birthday, I´d have a wish, LOL: please, please, give us fans a glimpse of hope of a new tour this year… the gigs we enjoyed in 2006 and 2007 are too long ago… we are craving for more. Thankfully Fed is keeping us posted with your plans and keeping in touch with each other.

    Rock on, and thanx again for your mesmerizing music and spellbinding moments we will never forget.

  18. Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes, and similarly happy birthday to everyone else who has a birthday soon.

    Although I don’t get much chance to visit the chatroom and I don’t post half as often as I mean to, I still remember all those great comments and conversations I’ve had over the years. Thanks to everyone who has been part of those. Hopefully my contributions will become slightly more frequent from now on.

    Have a good weekend everyone.

  26. Happy, happy birthday, Dave!

    Well, I’ve just painted my son’s Strat-replica black, so it looks like yours, as he had wished. I wish I could afford a real one with your signature, but…

    Have a nice day with the ones you love. I’ll ask my wife to make a cake (if she finds a time, fortunately it’s Saturday), so we can take a bite for your 64th ( :v ), while listening to and watching Live In Gdansk.

    All the best from Croatia!

  27. Best wishes David and ‘birthday greetings’ for tomorrow.

    ‘Bottle of wine?’
    ‘Sunday morning go for a ride.’
    ‘Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
    Who could ask for more?’

    I wish you a wonderful weekend.

    We still need you. Will you still feed us now you’re 64?

    Belated birthday greetings for yesterday, Stephen. Happy birthday today, Susan and Thomas.

    As well as David’s birthday, my daughter, Sarah, is celebrating her recent engagement, therefore March 6th is decreed ‘Smile’ day.

    XOXOXOXO

  30. Wishing Daving a beautiful Birthday, surrounded by love, family, friends.

    This poem of Paul Verlaine describes better than I ever could the emotions and joy of listening to your music.

    “Quand Marco chantait, ses mains, sur l’ivoire,
    Évoquaient souvent la profondeur noire
    Des airs primitifs que nul n’a redits,
    Et sa voix montait dans les paradis
    De la symphonie immense des rêves,
    Et l’enthousiasme alors transportait
    Vers des cieux connus quiconque écoutait
    Ce timbre d’argent qui vibrait sans trèves,
    Quand Marco chantait.”

    Wishing you a very very long life with health and happiness.

    With deep love and admiration spanning over four decades!

    Bella

  39. Have a very happy birthday!!

    You are the best guitarist in the world and also you are my favorite musician in all the world!! I have hope to return to Argentina soon. The best thing that could happen in my life is you come to do a concert in Argentina. I’m 17 and play the guitar, I enjoy playing your songs, it’s wonderful.

    You’re very important to me, in your course in Pink Floyd, and your solo career revolutionized my life. Thank you for your existence… I greatly appreciate you.

    Bella Vista, Buenos Aires.

  40. Happy Birthday to all!

    Have a good weekend everyone!

  41. Hi David. Happy Birthday!

    The only question I have for you is WHEN you could come to play your music to my country, Argentina? Here are 1.000.000 Pink Floyd Fans since 1969 when EMI from Argentina released the soundtrack of “More”. Since then, the number of fans grows every year… Roger Waters came twice and played two shows (in 2001 and 2007) and there are two Argentine Pink Floyd tribute bands.

    My eyes saw Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and The Rolling Stones playing in Argentina… We are waiting you!

    Best Regards, Martin

  42. Isten éltessen David születésed napja alkalmából!

    Kívánom, hogy legalább mégegyszer ennyi ideig kápráztasd el a világot csodálatos zenéddel!!

    Öszinte szeretettel és tisztelettel:

    Zoli 😀

    Budapest, Magyarország.

  43. Happy Birthday David.

    Been listening to your music all day on my new system, absolutely live for your music, keeps me alive.

    Mildura Victoria Australia, I will see you one day.

  44. Happy birthday, Mr.Gilmour!!! Happy birthday to you from my mother and me. 😀

    With her help I became a Pink Floyd listener and fan of David’s guitar style. In next week I will play a Comfortably Numb on “The Rock-Bands competition” in my town. I hope that it will be great! And I hope that David will arrive in Russia! 🙂

    With your help I really understand what I want. Music became an instrument for explaining emotion.

    Happy birthday! Best wishes!

  45. Tchin-Tchin, David, I would like to share some cyber bubbles with you.

    I hope you have a wonderful day with your family and friends.

    Thank you so much for everything, your music, your generosity, your smile, and also for giving us this great blog.

    Don’t you like this quote by Gustave Le Bon: “Il passe un vent de toute beauté sur les années.” ? – Beautifully said, I think.

  46. Carissimo David,

    la tua musica e quella dei Pink Floyd rappresentano, per me un valore irrinunciabile e carico di emozioni sempre. Mi limito a dirti un grazie infinito. Vorrei dirti tante altre cose, ma l’inglese non lo conosco e temo che non mi capiresti. Auguri di buon compleanno, di pace, di salute e di tanta serenità per te e per la tua famiglia
    con stima e tanto affetto

    Pra te encontrar
    Não estou ao seu lado
    Mas posso sonhar
    Aonde quer que eu vá Levo você no olhar
    Não sei bem certo
    Se é só ilusão
    Se é você já perto
    Se é intuição
    E aonde quer que eu vá Levo você no olhar
    Longe daqui
    Longe de tudo
    Meus sonhos vão te buscar
    Volta pra mim
    Vem pro meu mundo
    Eu sempre vou te esperar.

    A voce David Gilmour!!
    Desejo toda magia de amor.
    Que seus mais belos sonhos se realizem.

  75. Dear David Gilmour,

    Best wishes from your birthday today from me and my family!

    I like you sooo much! My son, he is 36 years old, likes your music too. He is also a Music man. My grandsons, 2 and 4 Years young, have loved you and your songs since their birth. They call you “debbitt”. My husbands figure looks like yours and he lives since many years ago in his black T-Shirts, when he is at home. He helped me to write this letter to you.

    My heart is full of feelings, when I hear your music. I hear the songs in dark times, I feel better, I hear the songs in light times, I paint pictures. I dream away with your magic music in my inner dreamland.

    Thanks so much for all. You have a special place in my soul and your smile is the most beautiful smile I know. And I am happy to stay the same time on the planet like you.

    So, that was a long letter from an old fan to my old friend in music and I hope you have a long life. I hope you read these words and you enjoy a little bit.

    Happy birthday to you !!!!!!!

  76. Happy birthday David.

    Thank you very much for the music. I hope every day is a great day for you. Not possible, maybe, but it’s a sincere wish from me to you and yours.

    Happy birthday everyone!

  77. Happy Birthay, Mr. David Gilmour,

    I only wish you many more years of music dreams.

    A bit selfishly also to me, with many more tones of your incredible guitar.

    Thank you very much for many colourful daydreams.

  78. Most Happy Birthday, David!

    Have all the health, luck, happiness and family support that you need to feel strong and motivated to continue doing what you do best – sharing the love of the Universe with all of us – your devoted-to-life fans. May God Bless you with new music and songs as well as with strong spirit and body for many years to come so that we have the chance to be spell-bound by your magic again.

    You know that we are waiting for a new records and new tours – and we ever will. The magic of your music, of your guitar and voice, of your magical presence wherever you are are really very important – not only for the fans, but for the ascending Earth in this critical times.

    God Bless you and everything and everyone you love!

    Parabéns, muitas felicidades e, principalmente, muitos anos de vida.

    Eu sei que dificilmente você irá ler isto (espero que o Fed leia… e lhe passe o recado, hehe) mas gostaria de reforçar o convite do meu conterrâneo brasileiro e dizer que Curitiba está te esperando também.

    Um Abraço.

  100. Happy birthday to you, my musical inspiration and mentor.

    I guess that no one in this little world is a bigger slave to your divine tones than I. 20 years of admiration for everything you do and play… my son, whose birthday is here on Monday, says hello to you too… he’s only turning 5 years this time and of course is named by you. And he’s proud like his old man here to be living a life here with your music.

    I could probably write a million pages for you, but you don´t even read it anyway, I guess.

    Thank you, Dave. Best wishes to you… hope to hear from you again soon.

  101. Happy Birthday to David Gilmour.

    Day long Pink Floyd and solo tribute from me to David.

  121. This is slightly off-topic, but after rereading the excellent Mojo article on Syd this weekend, and reading the little box that has the interview with David, I wanted to make a comment.

    In the interview David notes that a lot of fans might think it “Sacreledge” for him to tinker with the material he recorded with Syd. When I read that I worried about something–Mr. Gilmour probably not only has completed works by Syd, but half finished things like, “She Was a Millionaire.” I hope he’s not worried that we, the fans, would think it’s unthinkable to finish an unfinished lyric.

    For me–a super hard core fan–that’s not an issue. I loved what Paul and George did with John’s “Free as a Bird.” I almost wept when I first heard it. In the same way I hope that David finishes song fragments he has from Syd, and I hope he adds his voice. If David doesn’t finish the lyrics himself, and lets Polly do it, or David Bowie or McCartney or even Joe the plumber, that doesn’t bother me either. Because David has the moral right. As long as he thinks the lyrics work, I’m OK with it.

    David was Syd’s friend. He helped Syd record and finish his solo albums, they had the same musical sensibilities, and he’s kept the royalty money flowing in Syd’s direction all these years. David has the absolute moral right to finish off any song he wants ANY way he wants. Even with Polly or Bowie or anyone.

    Anyway, I hope he does.

    P.S. The Smile remix is really, really magical. David should release a double album of remixes of a bunch of his songs. The originals are great, but so are the remixes. New continents of sound.

  122. Hi David,

    even if a bit late, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!

    All I can say is a big thank you for all the emotions and magic you are giving us with your music. Hope to see you soon on another tour to Italy/Venice.

    CIAO.

  123. Happy Birthday to David and Best Wishes for a serene and fruitful future.

  124. Happy Birthday David!!! Sorry for the belated wishes, but I wish you a healthy and happy year AND many more!

    Thank you for everything that you have done for us… both musically and for letting us use your website to enjoy each other’s company.

    All the best from Connecticut!

  125. Dear David,

    I’d like to wish you a big happy birthday. You are my greatest influence…

    I was lucky enough to play at The National in Richmond, VA on March 6, and I took my trusty Gilmour Signature Strat…. I guess it’s just coincidence its your birthday also. That guitar is the greatest guitar I’ve ever played…

    It’s a extremely versatile guitar, we played blues, country, rock, everything on it, and it sounded phenomenal.

    Thanks,
    Tyler Foxwell

  126. Happy belated Birthday David! You’re an inspiration always (besides Scorpions) for me!!

    All the best, Health and long life!!

    Cheers from Manaus-Brazil

    Thanks!

  132. 😉 Dear David! Congratulations with your BIRTHDAY!!! Wish you strong Health, Happiness and any Successes in your musical creative work!

    I must to say you’re a very interesting musician. First I’d heard Pink Floyd when I was 5 years old. It was in 1979. I very like your music because it inspired me to make music. I play on guitars very nice. You know I like to play many guitar solos from Pink Floyd’s repertoire. Especially I like such songs as: Wish You Were Here, Green Is the Colour, Fat Old Sun, Narrow Way, Wot’s Uh… The Deal, Cymbaline, Childhood’s End, Shine on…, Comfortably Numb and so on. And also I like your solo works. I listen to interesting music: The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and so on. I like to perform the Blues.

    I don’t know what I do in Ukraine. Here nothing gets. It’s not such a country as yours. I like the English culture. I’d like to play with you on the stage. It would be so nice! You know how I’d like to see you. Your music has large Meaning in my life. I dream about it for a long time.

    I’d be pleased to speak with you! Thank you for the wonderful music!

    Best Wishes!!! Stanislav.

    Answer me, please.

  133. Happy birthday David.

    I know your birthday has passed but I hope you had a good time celebrating it.

    Thank you so much for all the music you have shared with us. You are a blessing to the world. Wish you nothing but happiness to you and your family for your next birthday. 😀
