I don't know but even when you zoom in it looks very much like him still.

I don't think it's him though it's someone who doesn't look dissimilar. Did he ever wear a shirt like that on stage? He tended to favour t-shirts, didn't he?

Google seems to suggest that it is Scott Gorham

I would imagine Google image search where you can drag and drop an image on Googles search bar and it looks for stuff about it.

Definitely Scott Gorham. The Les Paul with the missing switch surround gives it away. Besides Gilmour never dressed so 'rawk'.

Its a reverse image search, though it seems a bit buggy.

Which is funny since Snowy White played in Thin Lizzy, so there is a connection.
