David Gilmour on the Apollo 11 moon landing

Posted by madhack on Jul 1, 2009

As part of a series commemorating the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11's landing on the moon, The Guardian is running a piece penned by David Gilmour himself. Although brief, David talks about his feelings during those events, what influence they may have had on the band's music, and the "Moonhead" jam the band performed to footage of Armstrong and Aldrin's moon walks at a BBC TV studio

The video/jam, although not new even to the Internet, is a lot of fun for anyone who still feels a sense of wonder at human exploration and the outside universe in general.
