David Gilmour Video Antology (MP4)

Gilmour was born in Cambridge, England. His father, Douglas Gilmour, was a senior lecturer in zoology at the University of Cambridge and his mother, Sylvia (née Wilson), was a teacher and film editor who raised her family at Grantchester Meadows, later immortalised by a Roger Waters song on Pink Floyd’s Ummagumma.
He has a younger brother who is also a musician.

Gilmour attended The Perse School on Hills Road, Cambridge, and met future Pink Floyd guitarist and vocalist Syd Barrett, along with bassist and vocalist Roger Waters who attended Cambridgeshire High School for Boys, also situated on Hills Road.
He studied modern languages to A-Level, and along with Barrett, spent his lunchtime learning to play the guitar.
They were not yet bandmates however, and Gilmour started playing in the band Joker’s Wild in 1962.
Gilmour left Joker’s Wild in 1966 and busked around Spain and France with some friends.
However, they were not very successful, living virtually a hand-to-mouth existence.
In July 1992, Gilmour stated in an interview with Nicky Horne on BBC radio that he ended up being treated for malnutrition in a hospital.
In 1967, they returned to England.
