13/8/15 – Dave Gilmour – New album – Tour Dates – Rattle That Lock – Animated Video – 2015

September 18th seems to be a popular date to release a new album in mega-star land as Dave Gilmour releases a new track from his forthcoming, first album in 10 years, Rattle That Lock. The first single might be a little too aware of the need to succeed, too in need to tick all the boxes, catchy […]

As Roger Waters indulged his demons on The Final Cut (1983) and […]
