    spoiler alert: (Sorry) He does not do echos, David Claimed that song was for he and Rick and with Rick gone he would not perform it again
    I have every Pink Floyd , David Gilmour, video and or soundtracked movie they ever did (More, The Vallee, Zabriski Point, etc.) including a behind the scenes tour of Delicate sound of thunder filmed by Nick mason's Drum tech "Bob Hickey" called "Pink Floyd first in space", Including the solo by David for comfortably numb,

    I remember renting Live at PompeiI on VHS in high school with my psychedelic rock band/best friends and fantasizing about being musicians playing gigs.


    Well....not everyone of my old bandmates is playing gigs now....


    But thankfully, here I am, only 30 and playing gigs every couple weeks.

    That film may have just been one of the events that hipped me to the divine power of sound.

    I saw pink floyd for the first time when they did the UMMAGUMMA tour, that video was 1/2 of that concert and 1/2 the making of DSOTM tour (called "Eclipse") I have some really fond memories of that whole time period , During the video Dave is playing a wierd Black guitar made for him by Bill lewis of Lewis music in Vancouver.

    I went with a buddy of mine & thoroughly enjoyed the event! Gilmour was backed by an excellent band, including keyboard ace, Chuck Leavell. The movie started with rehearsals & Mr. G explaining his mindset for the upcoming performance. Combined with the legendary setting, an audience of about one thousand, (floor), amazing lighting & a huge, circular screen, (I've seen much better graphics), behind the band, the stage was definitely set. DG started with a goldtop LP, p90's & Bigsby, (appearing for this song, only), playing at dusk. He used an older burst Tele, (maple neck), for the next tune & a few later. Most of the show featured his famous black strat, including several songs on a lap steel console & a few on a Gibson acoustic. After the show, we compared notes with a well versed associate of mine, who thought David was great, but wouldn't ever buy the dvd...he felt much of the material was too obvious, why wasn't their more of his solo stuff? Considering the momentous occasion & setting, certain songs had to be inclusive, after all, returning to Pompeii, the ghosts had to be appeased! This was not a typical concert, adding DG's age to the equation. The cinematography must also be commended, (spectacular aerial footage), plus some excellent backing vocals & harmonies!
