The Beatles Taught Gilmour How To Rock
PINK FLOYD legend DAVID GILMOUR learned how to rock by copying the BEATLES on a borrowed guitar.
Despite carving a niche in prog rock, Gilmour idolised the Fab Four and learned all of their early hits - after borrowing his first instrument from his next-door neighbour.
Speaking at the launch of his DVD, Remember That Night - Live At The Royal Albert Hall, the 61-year-old revealed, "I borrowed my first guitar of a neighbour and never gave it back. I've still got it actually.
"I was an enormous fan of the Beatles. I copied everything they did before I started creating my own stuff. I like to have been in the Beatles. They did well.
