The bands of the sixties and seventies are still very popular today, and one could say almost every rock band of this era has been influenced in one way or another by Pink Floyd's music and particularly David Gilmour's guitar work. He was originally asked to join the band to play rhythm guitar along with lead guitarist Syd Barrett. After Barrett left the band, Gilmour became the lead and got the opportunity to play for their second album, A Saucerful of Secrets. He became the source of Pink Floyd's atmospheric sound and its theatrical flare through playing guitar and sharing the singing with Roger Waters.
Gilmour released his first batch of solo material in 1978. About Face was released in 1984. In 1986, he took the band Pink Floyd and revamped it, making their music more guitar-driven than vocally-driven as their music had been. During breaks in touring and recording with the band, David Gilmour sat in as a session musician. He backed up a lot of famous artists like Kate Bush and Roy Harper. Gilmour is still writing, recording and touring today, and his live performances are impressive with his methodically simple solos and smooth voice.
