In a career spanning more than 50 years, Gilmour is best known for his work as the guitarist and co-lead vocalist of the progressive rock band Pink Floyd.
David Gilmour entered in the Pink Floyd in January 1968 as guitarist and co-lead vocalist in 1968, effectively as a replacement for founder Syd Barrett, who left the band shortly afterwards. Gilmour initially played the guitar and made the backing vocals in Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun, and was lead vocalist in A Saucerful of Secrets.
During the production of the album, David Gilmour had an affair with singer Marianne Faithfull, Mick Jagger's partner at the time, who shared vocals of the song "Incarceration of a Flower Child" with Gilmour.
After the end of the relationship with Jagger and her divorce with John Dunbar, Faithfull started to dating with Gilmour.
Besides not getting married, David and Marianne had one son, Richard-Harris Gilmour.
