Happy Birthday, David Gilmour

David Gilmour, best known for his time as the lead guitarist and vocalist for Pink Floyd, turns 67 today. My Fender guitar calendar on my office wall says so. So I thought I would post a little something today to wish a happy birthday to a man whose voice used to put me to sleep when I was a baby.
You can read his bio here at his official website:
Some of them standing, some are waiting in line
As if there was something that they thought they might find
Taking some strength from the feelings that always were shared
And in the background the eyes that just stared
What was it brought you out here in the dark?
Was it your only way of making your mark?
Did you get rid of all the voices in your head?
Do you now miss them and the things that they said?
On your own admission you raised up the knife
And you brought it down ending another man’s life
When it was done you just threw down the blade
While the red blood spread wider like the anger you made
I don’t want this anger burning in me
It’s something from which it’s so hard to be free
And none of the tears we cry in sorrow or rage
Can make any difference or turn back the page
