David Gilmour has kindly helped the cause of Gary McKinnon – who has been accused of hacking into 97 Pentagon and NASA computer systems looking for extra-terrestrial life!  He faces extradition to the USA to face trial and could be locked away for the rest of his life.  He has Aspergers syndrome and the British newspaper, The Mail, has been supporting him in their campaign to have him tried in the UK where he committed the offences.

David Gilmour has contributed to a Graham Nash song called Chicago.  The lyrics have been changed and it has been re-recorded.

The ChigagoMP3 featuring David Gilmour will be available to download shortly, possibly as MP3 file for free.

Stay tuned for more info.

Lyrics to David Gilmour’s Version of Chicago by Graham Nash

David Gilmour and his manager Paul Loasby have helped to obtain copyright clearance from Graham Nash, to allow Janis Sharp’s re-written lyrics to Chicago.

So your brother’s bound and gagged
And they’ve chained him to a chair
Won’t you please come from Chicago just to sing
In a land that’s known as freedom how can such a thing be fair
Won’t you please come from Chicago for the help that you can bring

We can change the world, rearrange the world
It’s dying – to get better

Politicians sit yourselves down, there’s something for you here
Won’t you please stand up in London for our Lives
Don’t ask Jack to help you cause he’ll turn the other ear
Won’t you please stand up in London and join us side by side

We can change the world, rearrange the world
It’s dying – if you believe in justice
Dying – and if you believe in freedom
Dying – Stand for Autistic Rights
Dying – and a world we can believe in, open up the door

Somehow people must be free, so help the day comes soon
Won’t you please come from Chicago show your face
From the bottom of the ocean to the mountains of the moon
Won’t you please stand up in London no one else can take your place

You can change the world rearrange the world
It’s dying – if you believe in justice
Dying – and if you believe in freedom
Dying – Give Gary back his life
Dying – make a world we can believe in, open up the door

 

Why is Gilmour Involved?

McKinnon’s mother said, “We’ve known Joe, Dave Gilmour’s brother-in-law, since Gary was a child and Joe knows Gary is a good person,” she writes. “Joe told David Gilmour and his sister Polly (Polly is David Gilmour’s wife) and Dave immediately offered and emailed me to say he is happy to sing on our ‘Sing In’ recording/cd for Gary.”.
