Pink Floyd are one of the world's most beloved and influential rock bands, a group who redefined what was capable within the genre, and set mind-boggling sales records while doing so.  

David Gilmour, a significant force in Floyd for all but the first couple years of the band's existence, is widely regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. His soaring, melodic, less-is-more style is unforgettable, and synonymous with the band.
