David Gilmour is better than ever

It’s safe to say I am a big David Gilmour fan. I love Pink Floyd and whenever I would talk to someone else who liked them as well they were always surprised I didn’t like Roger Waters more. Perhaps this is too strong – I like him just fine but I don’t think he was the “heart” of Floyd as some fan boys and he himself thinks. I distinctly remember getting into a fight with someone over this a few years ago. We were discussing the relative merits of Gilmour and Waters when finally he said something to the affect “Well without Waters you wouldn’t have songs like Comfortably Numb!” when I told him Gilmour wrote the music for it he thought I was lying. What attracts me to Floyd and Gilmour is the music. The lyrics are nice too But don’t get me wrong, I am not bashing Waters. I loved Radio K.A.O.S and The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking. But Gilmour’s On an Island and About Face are better!
