David Gilmour Black Strat Book Available Now
The Black Strat book tells the official chronological story of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour’s favorite legendary black Stratocaster from 1970 to the present.
Written by Phil Taylor, David’s personal guitar technician and the band’s chief backline tech since 1974, the only person to know Pink Floyd’s equipment better than the band themselves.
The book is illustrated with more than 170 photos, many of which have never been published before, and the cover was designed by Storm Thorgerson, designer of many Pink Floyd album covers.
David’s Black Strat featured on Pink Floyd tours and iconic albums including Meddle, Atom Heart Mother, Obscured By Clouds, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall. It was also used on David’s solo projects: David Gilmour, About Face and On An Island.
It can be seen in the film Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii, at the 2005 Live 8 Pink Floyd reunion and on David’s 2007 Remember That Night.
