The Later Years 1987-2019
Nice recognition for Gilmour
Posted by pulse on Feb 2, 2001
After the realization that mainstream companies of our pop culture and media hyped society like VH1/MTV have little love for the band who would never "sell out" to their requests and demands for their unwarranted hype machine, it has appeared they will never give current and former Pink Floyd members their due. Gilmour has been left off their "20 Greatest Guitarists Countdown," as has Roger Waters on their "Greatest Songwriters Countdown." Their absences on lists that almost any credible musical historian of Rock 'n Roll would notice and question. But it's nice to see REAL fans of a particular genre give credit where credit is due. In a popular site for guitar enthusiasts, fans have voted Gilmour from a large list including names like Clapton, Page, and Hendrix as the Champion of the Guitar Survivor Series. Enjoy!
