    Live in Gdansk is worth a listen. I've only seen him playing with the rest of the band!

    Love the early Floyd up until 'The Final Cut'. After that, hmmm not so sure. Gilmour's solo stuff is a bit wishy washy. I've been playing guitar for years, so I really appreciate his guitar playing.

    I can play guitar pretty well, but I'm absolutely fascinated by the art of songwriting. My favourite band is 'The Mountain Goats'. Their songs are intense. Sorry, but the later Floyd stuff got all generic and bland.

    The only solo Gilmour album I like is 'About Face'. Roger Waters solo stuff is also lesser than the early Floyd. His high spots were 'Radio KAOS' and 'Amused to Death'.

    That is all.
    Actually I agree with you. The solo works are very valid, but they're not Floyd and nor are they trying to be, and that's important.

    I like the later soundscapes, but I'm not keen on Final Cut either. I think the established sound was too expansive to then try and produce and album with such a message; it needed a smaller band and sound really, something a bit simpler.

    Something I haven't done is check out his solo stuff. There's only so much music I can get around to listening to...

    I'm a guitarist too, so I guess I have a keen interest in the guitarist for any band I like the sound of. Gilmour's got to be one of the best; I love the expressive way he plays... it's awesome.

    Dark Side of the Moon has to be one of the best albums of all time.

    I saw The Wall in 197? and the '94 gig. I went to '94 with a bunch of people including someone who had toured as soundcrew; when we left we all looked like this --> It was STUNNING!

    Saw Pink Floyd back in 1975 (I think, it is a long time ago, man ) They were amazing..must admit though, I do like their earlier stuff but I have got 'On an Island' and it is very good
