FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’ David Gilmour (in the studio)

David Jon Gilmour CBE (born 6 March 1946) is an English guitarist, singer, songwriter and member of the rock band Pink Floyd. He joined as guitarist and co-lead vocalist in 1967, shortly before the departure of founding member Syd Barrett. Pink Floyd achieved international success. By the early 1980s, they had become one of the highest-selling and most acclaimed acts in music history.

It appears to be inside his Astoria studio floating on the Thames. Much of Pink Floyd’s work was recorded there. It was built in 1912 as a luxury houseboat with the top deck holding a 90-piece orchestra.

The song is written about and dedicated to Syd Barrett, who left the band in 1968 because of deteriorating mental health.

Comments:

Not many have invoked such emotion in so few notes, Gilmour is Legendary

Davis Gilmour is the master of emotion and string tension

His touch and feel is unmistakable. Anybody can play those notes, but no one can make it sound quite like that.

Lyrics below


“Shine On You Crazy Diamond “

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there’s a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught in the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision, rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!
