Something to mellow out your Thursday night/Friday morning…
Any Pink Floyd fans? I have a quick question.
In Shine On Crazy Diamond did David Gilmour play sax? Yes I’m behind sue me. 😂😂
Nope. Dick Perry played the sax. David didn’t start learning the sax until quite recently when his son was taking sax lessons.
Good. You saved me a heart attack. I can’t handle guitar as it is. 😂😂
A little more info:
Richard ‘Dick’ Parry (born 22 December 1942 in Kentford, Suffolk, England) is an English saxophonist. He has appeared as a session musician on various albums by modern bands and artists, and is probably best known for his solo parts on the Pink Floyd songs “Money”, “Us and Them”, “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” and “Wearing the Inside Out”. He also played on the Bloodstone album Riddle of the Sphinx.
Parry started his career as a friend of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour. He was part of a mid-1960s band also including Gilmour called Joker’s Wild. From there, Gilmour persuaded him to play on Pink Floyd studio albums, including The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Division Bell, as well as on every Pink Floyd live performance between 1973 and 1977, and the 1994 world tour. He also toured as part of The Who’s brass section on their 1979–1980 tours.
As far as I know, David has only played sax on one recording, “Red Sky at Night” on his “On An Island” record.
And I know……how does a guy get ALL THIS TALENT.
I played sax in high school. And I gave it up. So I don’t remember shit about it. This kills me. Omg. I so regret it lol 😍😍😍😍
Lost for Words Pink Floyd
I was spending my time in the doldrums
I was caught in a cauldron of hate
I felt persecuted and paralyzed
I thought that everything else would just wait
While you are wasting your time on your enemies
Engulfed in a fever of spite
Beyond your tunnel vision reality fades
Like shadows into the night
To martyr yourself to caution
Is not going to help at all
‘Cause there’ll be no safety in numbers
When the right one walks out of the door
Can you see your days blighted by darkness?
Is it true you beat your fists on the floor?
Stuck in a world of isolation
While the ivy grows over the door
So I open my door to my enemies
And I ask could we wipe the slate clean?
But they tell me to please go fuck myself
You know you just can’t win
