FLASHBACK: David Gilmour, David Bowie Perform “Comfortably Numb”
David Gilmour celebrates his birthday today (March 6), and while he’s been primarily active as a solo act, it’s difficult not to get chills when he performs those Pink Floyd classics live, particularly this performance from 2007.
Gilmour performed a three-night stand at London’s Royal Albert Hall that year. The performances were filmed and resulted in Remember That Night: Live At The Royal Albert Hall. The highlight in the set came when Gilmour was joined by David Bowie who performed two songs: “Arnold Layne” and “Comfortably Numb.”
To say the performance brought down the house is an understatement.
…and that guitar solo. My God…that guitar solo!
