David Gilmour performed with the legandary Reverend Al Green last night on BBC1's Friday Night with... Jonathan Ross. Also in the band, which was put together for one night only, was Jools Holland, his brother Christopher, Gilson Lavis on drums, Lisa Grahame and Phil Veacock taking on saxophone duties, Chris Storr on trumpet, and Barry Campbell, on bass.
Although the rendition of Let's Stay Together was an excellent one, perhaps Mr Gilmour should have used a guitar that was plugged in!! It was barely audible! But I guess it lends itself well to the style of the song. You can enjoy the song below.

actually, guys, i'm loving the subtlety of david's rhythm work. you've got to listen hard to hear him, but it's well worth the work. meanwhile, wondering what's missing in the piece that was edited at 2:02-2:03. guitar solo, maybe? man, oh man. anyone got an uncut copy of this???
That's not a solo guitar song at all. David was probably asked to do it and why would he say no? Afterall, he probably digs the hell out of the song and might like being just part of a band every once in a while rather than being the super nova star.
