Just picking up something from the 'About Face' thread (ironically more a Roger than David connection) -
In 1999, Roger gave Marianne Faithful a song he'd supposedly written in 1968, called "Incarceration of a Flower Child" - notable for containing the same "Do you remember me / how we used to be" line and melody from "Your Possible Pasts". He also apparently played bass and keyboards on the track, but neither part is very...apparent.


and 'Sparrows Will Sing' for Marianne in 2014 -

Two tracks from Roy Harper's Once (1990), both featuring Gilmour (and one featuring Kate Bush). The title track trailed off into a minute-long piece of similar guitar noises and "One of My Turns"-type synth sounds called "Once in the Middle of Nowhere", but it's...nowhere to be found on YouTube.

"HQ was recorded, fortuitously enough, at Abbey Road, at the same time as Floyd's sessions for Wish You Were Here. Gilmour is one of many guitarists on the album and it is hard to distinguish him from Chris Spedding, Harper's chief guitarist of the time, who has a very similar style. It was Jenner's idea to use Gilmour, having been much impressed with his playing at Hyde Park. 'It was a pity,' said Jenner, 'that by the time we started recording, Dave had started rehearsing with the Floyd again. Though he'd been playing fantastic lead before, his contact with the Floyd tightened him up and he could only play Floyd-style on the session.' Dave, in fact, plays lead only on the first half of "The Game", which is finished off by Spedding."

I'm surprised this hasn't been posted yet, but here it is.

Snowy White, of course, toured with the Floyd in 1977, added a solo for the 8-track version of "Pig on the Wing", played lead (!) on Peter Green's In the Skies, played lead on Rick Wright's Wet Dream, then joined Thin Lizzy and recorded Chinatown in between the various first legs of the 1980 Wall tour. He was then touring with Thin Lizzy during the 1981 Wall tour, where he was replaced by Andy Roberts. He was also asked to join the Pros and Cons tour in 1984, but by then had accidentally made a hit single.

Since Snowy White had been poached by Thin Lizzy and would be touring with them, Andy Roberts joined the "surrogate band" for the 1981 Wall tour, having worked with Gilmour on Roy Harper's The Unknown Soldier in 1980. Prior to that, he'd released seven solo albums and was a founding member of Plainsong, whose 1972 debut album In Search of Amelia Earhart was a partial concept album about...well, that.

"One of my all time favourites of my own songs is 'First Thing In The Morning'. It's difficult to know exactly why this is so but I think it relates to my emotional state when I try to put myself into the place of a first world war soldier or survivor.... and to my own idea of how successfully those extreme, sad, wild and angry emotions show up in the song almost subtly, without being overbearing, triumphal or melodramatic. I think that I really managed to rise to the occasion in both the writing and the performance. I was helped a great deal in the performance by Andy Roberts' almost country interpretation and my own desire to head off into a rockabilly feel in the last verse." - Roy Harper

The YouTube channel, Alive in Memories has uploaded good quality boots of 70's shows. The spitting show from 1977 is up there, but I Iove this 1975 show.

The Final Cut still hasn't hit the three million mark. :-({|=

and the comments he said about his involvement with Pink Floyd matters and re-releases he has no say in it and does not concern him. Yet he was moaning about it last year
