FLASHBACK: David Gilmour, David Bowie Perform “Comfortably Numb”

David Gilmour celebrates his birthday today (March 6), and while he’s been primarily active as a solo act, it’s difficult not to get chills when he performs those Pink Floyd classics live, particularly this performance from 2007.

Gilmour performed a three-night stand at London’s Royal Albert Hall that year.  The performances were filmed and resulted in Remember That Night:  Live At The Royal Albert Hall.  The highlight in the set came when Gilmour was joined by David Bowie who performed two songs:  “Arnold Layne” and “Comfortably Numb.”

To say the performance brought down the house is an understatement.

…and that guitar solo.  My God…that guitar solo!
