I actually watched this tonight out of curiosity more than anything.

I found it quite sweet to be honest. A glimpse into the Gilmour family life and how they all get on.
Is that little one wandering about, must be around 2 years old their little one? Must be I guess!

Plenty of loons asking really daft questions in the chat window. No wonder David was always very anti-social towards his many admirers.

I recently received Polly's new book as an entitlement for buying a ticket to the cancelled talks. It's actually 'signed' by the pair of them. I first asked him for something to be signed way back in 1989 much to my regret. Now I've got it after all these years, it doesn't really mean anything now.

Complete dross. To be fair, I've only watched the first few minutes of a few of them. Or maybe it was the same one 3x over - hard to tell. I don't like that Charlie fella; he doesn't show Gilmour enough respect. Mind you, Gilmour seems pretty out of it these days, clutching his guitar like a dummy.

Complete dross.
Even the dog?
I thought for sure Gilmour was going to break into Seamus.

You can tell, you can just tell.

He should also get a haircut (I know his usual hairdresser may not be available due to the lockdown, but there must be some scissors lying around).

The only time his hair has been near a scissors was when he was appearing in court and trying to stay out of prison.

As much as the thought of him climbing the cenotaph and of the fact what he did there was incredibly disrespectful, he did pay a price for it and his parents especially Dave were very supportive.
To my mind, the little I know is that he seems a really good father to those kids especially Charlie.
I don't exactly see anything from Charlie in those online Von Trapped things to suggest he doesn't 'respect' Gilmour senior.

This is an interesting article from that rag called The Guardian. No idea if you've seen it.
