David Gilmour Birthday

Happy Birthday to David Gilmour

Happy 78th Birthday to David Gilmour who was born on 6th March 1946. As we mark the birthday of David Gilmour, the iconic Pink Floyd guitarist, it’s a moment to reflect on the indelible impact he has made on the world of music.

Gilmour’s entry into Pink Floyd in 1968 marked a pivotal shift in the band’s sound.
