Happy Birthday to David

As you’ve started sending your birthday wishes in already, I might as well just get out of the way and leave you to it.

There you go. Don’t mind me. I’ll be watching Beat Beat Beat, if anyone wants to wait until tomorrow to do this.

Happy Birthday, tomorrow, David.

      Best regards!

    2. Feliz cumpleaños Señor David, nuestros saludos cariñosos desde Chile, un país que necesita personas como Usted que vengan a visitarnos y den cuenta y digan al mundo los momentos difíciles que estamos pasando. Y nos den la alegría de poder escuchar buena música en vivo. Soy un Fans de 54 años de edad, vivo en la Isla Grande de Chiloé al Sur de Chile.

  2. Happy birthday David!!!! I’ve been listening for 40 years and I look forward to many, many more years…

  3. Best wishes on your birthday and throughout the coming year.

  4. chiamami ancora amore
    chiamami sempre amore
    continua a scrivere la vita
    tra il silenzio e il tuono
    difendi questa umanità
    che è così vera in ogni uomo
    chiamami ancora amore
    chiamami sempre amore
    che questa maledetta notte
    dovrà pur finire
    perché la riempiremo noi da qui
    di musica e parole
    chiamami ancora amore
    chiamami sempre amore
    in questo disperato sogno
    tra il silenzio e il tuono
    difendi questa umanità
    anche restasse un solo uomo
    chiamami ancora amore.

    Because ideas are like butterflies,
    you can’t take their wings away.
    Because ideas are like stars
    and storms can’t turn them out.
    Because ideas are like voices of a mother
    whom we considered lost
    and like the smile of God
    in this spit of a universe.
    Keep calling me “my love”,
    always call me “my love”
    because this damned night
    has to come finally to an end.
    Because we will fill it from here
    with music and words .

    Keep calling me “my love”,
    always call me “my love”,
    keep on writing this life
    between silence and thunder.
    Defend humanity
    which is so real in every man.
    keep calling me “my love”,
    always call me “my love”
    because this damned night
    has to come finally to an end.
    Because we will fill it from here
    with music and words

    Keep calling me “my love”,
    always call me “my love”
    in this desperate dream
    between silence and thunder.
    Defend humanity
    even if there is only one man left.
    Keep calling me “my love”.
    Always call me “my love”.
    Because we are love.
    (Roberto Vecchioni)

    Wishing you only the best on your special day.

    Happy Birthday, David.

  6. Hi David,

    what a wonderful 66th birthday!

    The best part of my life was with your music. God bless you.

    With true love, a huge hug

  7. Wishing you a very happy birthday, David!

    I enjoyed the special on VH1 Classics on Saturday evening and wish there were more Pink Floyd, David Gilmour and Roger Waters stuff on there and often!

    I hope you enjoy the birthday with your family doing what husbands and fathers do. Cheers!

    Bruce

  8. Isn´t his birthday tomorrow? In that case I will wait till tomorrow, it´s bad luck to wish a happy birthday beforehand.

    And it has been 6 years since OAI… 6 years… kind of too much, isn´t it? Come on David, we need more music, time to get busy again.

  9. A very Happy Birthday David! You truly are one in a million!

    Love always
    Theresa

  10. Happy Birthday David… We wish you many, many, many more to come. You are the Best.

  11. Just shared some of On an Island to some of those unaware. Smile still fantastic! Happy Birthday David – with many happy returns, best wishes, and much thanks!

  12. We Love Pink Floyd in America. Especially in New Orleans. 😉

    May you have the best birthday ever David!

    You truly are the best blues guitarist in my book … Your music moves me to the calmness in my soul … The best inspirational music on the planet … Bless you and thank you for sharing your talent with the world.

  13. Happy Birthday, wishing you good health and happiness in life.

    PLEASE COME TO ISRAEL. I WONT SEE YOU.

  14. Happy Birthday Mr. David Gilmour.

    Dan, Ivett and Milo. 🙂

    All the Best and lots of health.

  15. 6 years, where has it gone? So much has happened. All in the blink of an eye.

    Received my new car this morning, drove right along the military road along Hadrian’s wall, magic. Felt like Knightrider as you can talk to the car, techno eh. Poor bike has not had a look in since I passed my driving test.

    Here’s to another six years. Well done FEd and David.

    A very happy birthday David… and FEd, you forgot mine, but I’ll let you off, LOL.

    1. When was it, Damian? You’ll have to remind me, I don’t see it on the calendar.

      Congratulations on passing your driving test, by the way.

  16. Crikey another year gone. Here’s to the next one……………enjoy the day !

  17. Cher David,
    Je voudrais juste vous remercier pour m’avoir redonne la joie de vivre, je vous aimais beaucoup adolescente et j adorais Pink Floyd. Puis les années ont passe, et depuis trois ans je vous admire à nouveau, encore plus qu’auparavant, j ai découvert vos albums solos, je les adore. Vous êtes et resterez toujours talentueux, rempli de charme, de magnétisme et vous êtes toujours aussi beau! Grâce à vous je suis des cours de chant, de solfège et ma vie à change, en mieux. Alors je vous souhaite un très très heureux anniversaire en vous souhaitant de poursuivre votre carrière avec autant de talent. Je vous aime de tout mon cœur. Catherine

  18. David,

    I have finally gone into a studio and recorded a song that I wrote for you. So for your birthday, I attach your song for your listening pleasure. I hope you like it. Happy birthday!

    ‘…the silver sound from a tongue so strange, sing to me, sing to me…’

  19. Dear David,

    have a very very rocking

    and

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    Cannot believe that the last time I enjoyed you live was in 2007 at the Odeon. Please, please tour again, soon.

    Best wishes
    Ullie

  20. Sir David Jon Gilmour…

    too much to say, not enough time to say it! Might just as well make the usual, cheesy speech about how inspiring, how emotionally strong, beautiful, influential, ever-lasting, stunning and delicate your music and guitar playing is, blah blah blah… no matter what, you remain one underrated musician (even considering all the recognition you must get 🙂 )… long story short, my father and I, both avid Floyd fans (personally, I like to think of myself as more of like, a follower… not in the negative way, though) would like to wish you the best of birthdays, and a well deserved day of relaxation!

    Please, do a couple more gigs with Roger… maybe, after all these years, it’s tough… actually, it surely is… and yet, you don’t realize how many people would be flabbergasted at the idea… and I’d like to underline that it’s the PEOPLE, not the MAGAZINES…

    Enjoy. 🙂

  21. Happy Birthday David. Hope you are keeping well and having a peaceful relaxing day.

    Paul from sunny Leicestershire

  22. JOYEUX ANNIVERSAIRE from a french-aussie family!

    We’ll be listening to your music today thinking of you from the other side of the world

    Happy birthday
    Keep smiling

  25. Sir Gilmour, Happy Birthday all the way from Japan. Dreaming of your performance in Japan some day.

  26. happy birthday david, i wish the best for you in this day. you are the premium in the world, you music is magic, transport my soul to the sky.

    thanks for all david!!

  27. Here’s wishing you a wonderful day, a great year, a happy existence on this planet. Because of you and your music, I’ve traveled to concerts and events in the US and England, met new people who have come to mean so much to me, ventured out in ways that I wouldn’t have otherwise; in effect, your music has changed my life. I can’t thank you enough. Happy birthday, David.

  28. Happy Birthday, David:

    It’s amazing to know your idol has the same birthday than you, and David is my idol.

    Congratulations from Monterrey, Mexico

  29. All the Best to David for Today (and every other day for that matter).

    If David is like me, you don’t look forward to them, they just seem to come around too fast, but it’s a great time to spend with family and friends. Seeing I’m neither, I will go the local and have a pint of the black stuff and I’ll be thinking of High Hopes and wishing him and his family Good Health.

    Cheers,
    snow and family.

    1. HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY!!! I was gonna mail you a special b-day camel from my big sand box over here, buuuuuut it unfortunately wouldn’t fit in the cardboard box I had.

      Happy Birthday buddaaay!

  30. A Very Happy Birthday David. 66 on the 6th. Have a devilish day.

    ‘Won’t lose sleep he’ll just pretend…’

  31. On this special day, I wish you a very happy birthday surrounded by your loved ones and great happiness to your life.

    Everyday, Me, like the rest of your fans, give thanks for the gift of your music, that touches us at the deepest level of our being.

    This Friday, I’m going to The Wall Live, which wouldn’t be the masterpiece it is without you, and since last year, thousands of people have prayed for you to come and climb up the wall once more… But we respect and understand your decisions.

    Anyway, the most important of all is that you know that even today (maybe more than before), you are loved and admired, and your music (without forgetting Roger, Nick, Rick and Syd) mobilizes and gathers us, and accompanies us through our lives. Although words are insufficient, thank you very much.

    Best wishes from Argentina (and please forgive my English!).

    I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon…

    1. Teresa, your English is excellent. What a lovely message. Thank you very much.

      I hope you enjoy Friday’s concert.

    2. Teresa,

      I agree with FEd.

      You have expressed yourself excellently.

      You seem to have the perfect credentials to become an ‘Irregular’, welcome.

  32. Happy birthday David!

    Your music has brought me joy, inspired me, righted me, helped me through… I’m wishing you same blissful moments for your birthday!

    Lots of love
    Freyling

  33. Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear David, Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!

    Enjoy your Special Day…

  34. Feliz Cumpleaños David!! Happy Birthday David!!

    Please remain lighting the way…

    Ramiro@BuenosAires.

  35. Happy Birthday, David! The inspiration your unique gifts have given me has been quite significant, so recognizing the anniversary of your birth has special meaning to me (as it does to many others of course). May you continue to have happy years filled with warm moments with family and friends.

  36. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOOOO YOUUU

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We hope to you enjoy your day with your beautiful family. 😀

    Greetings from Argentina

  38. Happy Birthday!

    For the record, I would cut off my pinky if it meant I could go back in time and see just one Floyd show. Frankly, I would sacrifice my pinky if I could just meet you. Damn, I can’t believe I’m alive at the same time you are alive. I hope you can sense my soul right now, my existence, calling out to you from afar! I wish you had seen my friend and me singing Saucerful of Secrets on a remote island in the Carribean last May. I will carry your spirit and soul on with me for the duration of my life.

  39. Wishing you the best on your birthday and every other one to come.

    You have always been my favorite Pink Floyd member. I have followed and loved you and PF since the first time I heard you. The first time I saw you in Detroit is one of the best musical memories in my 60+ years of life!

    Hope this year you can bring us another CD!

    A big birthday hug!

    Annita
    Grand Rapids, Michigan

  40. Happy birthday David. With Pink Floyd or solo you have always been a big part of my life.

    My friend, we are both getting on in years, don’t you think it is time to bury the hatchet, so to speak, and forgive? I’ve been watching some old footage of late. I think you and Roger still have some great collaborations ahead if you can lay your egos aside.

    My best to you always.

  41. Happy Birthday! and thanks a million for the music… love, love, love.

  42. Dear David!

    I wish you much pleasure and joy on your birthday.

    I hope all of your wishes will come true and your birthday will be perfect for you and your family!

    I wish you all the good luck for the next year, health and inspiration for new songs.

    All the best to you
    Ina

  43. Happy Birthday David Gimour! You are a force of nature!

    Run like hell…

  57. Happy Birthday Mr. Gilmour.

    I started to play guitar after I heard you playing guitar. Thanks.

    I love you.

  58. Some fine words today (Alphonse de Lamartine, ‘Le Lac’) for a fine musician:

    Ô temps ! suspends ton vol, et vous, heures propices,
    Suspendez votre cours :
    Laissez-nous savourer les rapides délices
    Des plus beaux de nos jours !

    More prosaically, Tchin ! David, enjoy Champagne !

    1. happy birthday david.

      got a son whose B/D is on the same day so celebrating his 16th as well as many years listening to your music. luv yas both.

      be great to get you down here in australia for one last time?

  59. I want to wish you a Happy Birthday. For someone that has given so much joy in music to the world, it seems puny for one person to simply send a Happy Birthday Wish. But it’s the best I can do for now.

    So may you have a wonderful day filled with Friends and Family and many presents and gifts to you.
    – Gary

  60. Happy birthday David.. all the best wishes, hope you have a very good day.

    All the best to you and your legacy.

  61. But it’s only a birthday of a great part of my life, nothing more…

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID!!!

    1. Don’t forget to celebrate David, Happy Birthday.

      P.S. Thanks for the great music in my life and… Givemore (or was it Gilmour?) 🙂

  62. Happy Birthday David, with lots of respect and admiration as always.

    Enjoy your day with family and friends.

  63. Happy birthday, David!!!!!!

    You are the man!

    Have a great day surrounded by your loved ones, family and friends… and beer, of course, good old Guinness… and The Black Strat, if possible 😛

    Cheers!

  64. Friend David,

    I think I can call it that 28 years since your music and PF are part of my life. During the years that have passed we lost Syd, then Rick and despite the separation of the members, for me the band will always exist. I’ve warned the Fed that here in Curitiba is a nice place to do a show (Pedreira Paulo Leminski), maybe one day you take courage and come here and give us that pleasure.

    Congratulations, much happiness and many years of life and take care, we want to see you playing guitar at 90 years … hehehe.

    Hugs.
    Sando

  65. Thank God you were born a day like today!! Thanks for all you’ve given us. LOVE YOU (from Argentina).

  66. Happy birthday David.

    Thank you for your music. I am from a ex-communist republic in East Europe (Bulgaria). Before, when here was communism, your music was one of a very few things to live for. Now, there is a something like a pseudo democracy here, but your music is still helpful to escape for a some hours per day, every day. Thank you.

  67. Happy Birthday David!

    I wish you a wonderful time with your family and friends!

    all the best
    Werner

  68. Happy Birthday David, with lots of respect and admiration as always.

    Enjoy your day with family and friends.

  69. Best wishes to you and yours on your birthday!

    Thanks also for the free download of Pocketful of Stones, a most beautiful song. I’ve listened to it dozens of times since OAI debuted and this particular song is so enigmatic. Who is the person? A child? An ancestor? I’ve bandied this topic about with many friends. We’re all a bit puzzled! But love it anyway.

    Cheers,
    Lola from Maine

  70. Dear David, on his birthday, who gets the gifts are all of us, because we have the privilege to have you in our lives.

    Thank you for “Marooned”, my favorite song… It’s so beautiful!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Cheers always.

    With love,
    Maricília Arruda, Brazil.

  71. Hi David, congrats on you birthday! I wish you great health and hope you get on the road soon?

  72. Happy 66th birthday David!

    I wish you health and happiness, many, many smiles and a lot of success in your gifted art and in all your undertakings.

    One musical greeting for you with an old Bulgarian folk song.

  73. Happy Birthday David and my son Harris! I still remember that night six years ago in New York City – fabulous show!

    God Bless.

  74. Happy Birthday, David!

    Have a good time today and have a good, nice and healthy new year!

    Thank you for your wonderful music…

    Greetings from Bremen/Germany

  75. Happy birthday, David!

    I wish I could give you something that would be equal to the gift you’ve given me and so many others for all these years. Your music has been part of my life since 1968 when I first heard the album A Saucerful of Secrets. One of my most treasured memories is that of April 2006 in Los Angeles when I was lucky enough to share with my son the experience of seeing you and your group of traveling minstrels 😉 at the Kodak Theatre and at the Leno show. At the same time I met some of the really wonderful people that make up the Irregulars here on the Blog.

    So thank you for all you’ve given. I hope you know how much I/we appreciate you, your music and your integrity!

    Peace and love from the Pacific Northwest 🙂
    Gabrielle

    1. So I see that David has given us a present on his birthday in the form of a free download of A Pocketful of Stones! Thank you for that.

      A Pocketful of Stones is my son’s favorite song from On An Island and one of my favorite’s, as well. Beautiful ~ good choice, sir! 😉

  76. happy birthday dear david, peace and love and good music. thank you for all, you are the greatest.

  77. Mr David Gilmour – we wish you a happy birthday, so that all the best wishes come true – for you from POLAND!!!

  78. Happy Birthday David Jon Gilmour!

    I wish you the best and hope that the sun won’t “come up behind you again”! You really are a maestro at what you do, and what you do is the best. My father and I have grown up with your beautiful music and we and the rest of the world will never let the world to forget you and what you did. You’ve simply created and shared beauty and music with this world, thank you sir!

  79. As you’ve started sending your birthday wishes in already, I might as well just get out of the way and leave you to it.

    There you go. Don’t mind me. I’ll be watching Beat Beat Beat, if anyone wants to wait until tomorrow to do this.

    Hahahaha ~ You crack me up, funny FEd! 😀

  80. Very best wishes on your birthday. Hope to see you playing live again in this part of the world sometime soon (of course, this year’s Ottawa Bluesfest would be just perfect!!!).

  81. Happy birthday David!

    You are my inspiration for playing the guitar. Thank you for everything you have done to the music world, and that still has to come (maybe?). Have a pleasant day and I hope for many more to come! After all, a true legend never dies.

    – Maurice

  82. Happy Birthday David!

    Hope you have had brilliant day with family and friends.

    Many Best Wishes

  83. Hi Dave

    happy birthday and an enjoyable time with your family and your friends.

    For me you are the best guitar player ever, and I love your music!!!

  84. Wanted to wish David a Happy Birthday! Pleace come to Poland soon 😉

  85. Dear David, I wish you a very happy birthday!!!!! From your biggest fan in Argentina.!!! Enjoy!!!

  86. Happy Birthday David, and many happy returns.

    Literally can’t believe it’s 6 years since you turned 60 and On An Island was released. Such huge changes since then, for everyone.

    I hope you and Polly are having a great day!

    (And I hope a large piece of cake is reserved for you, FEd? 😉 )

  87. David, Sir,

    I’m late but not too late wishing you many happy returns of this day.

    All the best for another year with many musical ideas and of course good health and good luck…

    Herbert

  88. Happy Birthday David !!!

    Your music makes people happy,
    Makes them think …

    Please never stop making music. 🙂

  89. Feliz Aniversário David!

    Desejo-lhe muita saúde, paz e felicidades!

    Que ainda venham muitas inspirações para um novo disco!

    Um grande abraço,
    Nelso Jr.

  90. Happy birthday David! All my best wishes to you and your family in this special day. And also to Fed and all the blog’s followers.

    Bye!

  91. Dear David, I wish you a happy birthday!

    As a painter, since 1971 a fan of your voice and guitar (and all Pink Floyd music and art work in whole) I would like to show you my latest art work – the composition of stained glass windows on the theme of Love (shining like “crazy diamonds”). During my creative studio work in last three years I have been listening almost all the time to the PF music (and to your CD “On an Island”) in which I found really a lot of inspiring emotions and ideas. Thank you very, very much!

    I would be glad if you would take a look at this work, which I see as my homage to Pink Floyd and you, David Gilmour.

    Yours Sincerely!

    Matej Metlikovic
    Ljubljana
    Slovenia

    1. I know this is David’s special page, but that stained glass is absolutely beautiful. Gorgeous and very inspiring.

  92. Dear David…all the best from here…to you…sitting here …listening to the wedding song from David B. and wait for a Invitation from David G. …cheers…and watch about you…from the Heart ….Bernd v. d. L.

  93. Happy Birthday, Sir!

    Thank you for all the beautiful music. I’m listening to “On An Island” right now. One of my most favorite albums ever!

    Thanks again and I hope you’re having a wonderful day. Many more!

    Eric W. Hunt
    Houston, Texas, USA

  94. ah…are you really in France in studio.?…near the Charade? in La Fabrique?…or is it a Joke?…hope to see you soon…Shine on…

  95. Happy Birthday Mr. Gilmour!

    Here in Germany we have a popular song “Life starts at 66”.

    This should also be your motto and I wish you the very best for the next 66 years.

  96. Hi Fed, I was just kidding but it was 21/02/1964. Still pinch myself driving, such freedom and puts my mum’s mind at rest. I gave the bike up.

    Kind regards
    Damian.

    Can’t get over how quick time goes by, I was 16 when I saw The Wall at Earls Court, and David would have been 35 ish. I remember looking through binoculars when he was on top of the wall and was shocked to see he had his hair lopped off, got mine chopped 1 week later. Role models eh? LOL.

  97. Happy day, David. I’ve lived a parallel life with you, from afar, since Hyde Park to Vancouver. I gauge my progress along the path, not in an OCD way (!), against the progress of Floyd…in its many guises. You are very simply the best. Have a great year!

  98. As the popular German-language singer Udo Jürgens once sang, “mit 66 Jahren, da fängt das Leben an” — life starts at 66.

  99. Happy birthday, David. Just viewed the making of Wish You Were Here. Absolutely brilliant! I hope there is a new solo album in the works for the future.

  104. Dear David,

    I wish you best health possible to have, you and your band colleagues are with me in my mind and soul every day since 1969 when I listened you first time on radio and recorded a few of your songs on my tape recorder without to know at that time the name of the band.

    Of course, I “Wish You Were Here” …in Bucharest, but perhaps it’s just an amazing dream in my head.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU DAVID …with best regards from Bucharest, ROMANIA….looking to have a talk with you saying please and many thanks for the sounds I was lucky to be contemporary with and each vibrating from your strings enhances my soul with light and happiness. I hope, with your kindness to may have a communication. I wish also to invite you here in Romania, a sanctuary of amazing wild landscapes, less known abroad.

  105. I met you when I was 10 years. Since then your music and Pink Floyd has illuminated the path of my life, opened my mind and projected into a life more pleasant to the sound of the chords of the Gibson. I am grateful to God for giving you the talent you have.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! and many more!

  110. David, your music is the sound of my life since I was 12. All my best wishes of a lot of wonderful birthdays, hoping in a performance to live together in a next future everywhere…

  111. Yups, I am late again – so many comments…! 66 is 06.03.= `46 I am really not sure what it means.

    Enjoy your time with yours. All the best and God bless you.

  112. A HUGE happy Birthday to David and many, many more!

    It’s events like this that get me out of “work” mode and back onto the blog – it’s been too long. I hope that you were able to share your day with your family and friends. Cheers and thank you!

  113. David,

    I really want to thank you for the music you wrote and played. I hope that you will have a Happy Birthday…

    Happy birthday, David !

  115. Happy Birthday David!

    Did you know that…

    66 is the lowest number that shares a strobogrammatic prime factor with its invertible partner, i.e., 66 and 99 are both divisible by 11.

    Just another reason to hoist yet another one.

  116. Hi David,

    Belated birthday greetings as usual, but I wish you health and happiness always! 🙂

  117. Já é dia 09, mas ainda estou a comemorar seu aniversário, David. Desejo-lhe muitos anos ainda de vida para mostrar que os bons nem sempre morrem jovens como, dizia um jovem poeta e músico brasileiro, que, aliás, já morreu. Longa vida para vc e felicidades à sua família.

  118. Ooh that Douglas Adams Party looks a good gig, not only for our man’s little turn.

    Don’t suppose anyone was kind / far-sighted / enterprising enough to film it, were they?

  119. May I just say ♥♥♥ … what a way to honour a friend’s memory and could’t be more thrilled that the proceeds were donated to amazing causes – especially Save the Rhino International. Way to go Defenders of the Defenseless!!!

  120. I sent my birthday greetings last week, but the message seems to have got lost out there somewhere in cyberspace. 🙁

    Anyway, I was watching the RTN DVD tour documentary a few days ago and was thinking how great it would be to see you tour again sometime in the not-so-distant future. On saying that, I’d be more than happy to settle for ‘just’ seeing you perform at the Ottawa Bluesfest this July!!!

  121. I hear David is looking for a Triangle player for his new album, where do I send my CV Fed?

    Damian.

  122. I love your music forever. Happy belated birthday.

    I hope and pray you come to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada someday and play your soulful music. Hope you do a tour soon. I will be there.

    1. That’s lovely. Thanks, Sando.

      I hope the dream comes true some day. Honestly, if I could wish for David to visit any part of the world to perform, it would be Brazil.

  123. happy birthday david. we are all waiting, when you come to finland. on the island. and about face is yours, not pink floyd.

  124. Dear David;

    Happy Birthday! Your music has inspired millions and mine the most! I’ve been listening to you and everyone else since I was about 4 years old and I’ve been here since. Shine on you crazy diamond!
