David Gilmour is a guitarist and vocalist best known as one of the founding members of the English rock band Pink Floyd. He was born March 6th, 1946 in Grantchester Meadows, Cambridge, England. His zodiac sign is Pisces.
Pisces as a sign is creative, compassionate, and incredibly intuitive. Those born under the sign of Pisces are known for their spontaneity and dreamy nature. David has embodied these traits in his career as a musician. His creative works are known to explore grand concepts, all while embodying an emotional depth that is often inspired by feeling and emotion. He often creates complex harmonic structures and improvisations that are rooted in spontaneity and intuition. This is a perfect example of Piscean energy.
David has been the lead guitarist and vocalist of the band Pink Floyd since its inception in 1965. Under the tutelage of original front-man Syd Barrett, David and the rest of the band explored a wild range of psychedelic sounds. The influences of psychedelic rock, blues and classical music were combined to create the iconic, hugely influential ‘Floyd’ sound. When Syd Barrett left the band, it was David’s leadership and creative talent that kept the band on track.
In 1979, with the release of his self-titled solo album, David put his Piscean creativity on centre stage. His influences are explored with unique and meaningful depth, with many of the tracks being written at the same time as Pink Floyd’s albums ‘The Wall’ and ‘The Final Cut’. His combination of acoustic folk and classical elements, as well as fully electric, distorted guitar licks across the album, further underlined and explored the vast range of influences the musician had. The album’s success and critical acclaim cemented David’s stature as one of the world’s most influential guitar players, a crowning achievement for a Piscean artist.
Since his solo debut, David has released a further two albums, ‘About Face’ (1984) and ‘On an Island’ (2006). In addition to regular solo tours, David has also reunited with Pink Floyd for several one-off appearances and two world tours. Through all these endeavours, David has showcased his Pisces thoughtfulness and creativity. The combination of deep lyricism, complex musical structures and a raw unpredictable emotion is unmistakably Piscean – further cementing David as an iconic musician of his time.
David Gilmour truly encapsulates the spirit of a Pisces artist. His intuitive, heartfelt performances and imaginative visions have created a timeless catalogue of music that is still celebrated and enjoyed by fans all over the world. The Piscean sign has shown to be perfectly suited to his performance and style, and will continue to shape and drive David’s career in music for decades to come.
