Beloved Pink Floyd member David Gilmour‘s wife, Polly Samson recently took to social media via Twitter to voice her opinion regarding the newly released Leonard Cohen documentary entitled: “Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love”. Samson posted a review that claimed that Cohen was revealed as a ‘master manipulator’ by saying: “This is a fallacy. He was a man fighting the darkness, a victim of his own terror of going mad.” David Gilmour wife caught ‘dancing’ for famous singer.
In response, singer, Tracey Thorn tweeted back: “I mean, I guess both things can be true. Terrified people can be manipulative.” In which, the Pink Floyd spouse replied: “True, but as the recent letters show, he did not make false promises to Marianne.” You can view the full exchange below.
David Gilmour’s ‘wet’ accident onstage was just revealed. In other news regarding David Gilmour and Pink Floyd, fans recently took to social media to discuss the legacy and impact of Pink Floyd’s debut album – The Piper At The Gate of Dawn.
One fan said: “The record is dated, yes, when listening, you don’t hear state-of-the-art, but you do hear what sold people on them in the first place. Barrett’s songs straddle a fence, they are either charming, childlike poems set to music, nice little “songs,” or deep, intense experiments in sound and word pictures. Even though “Interstellar Overdrive” is a group composition, this is a good example of this point, it’s an extended jam, two uninterrupted performances played entirely independent from each other, with the beginning and ending cut out of one, and the remaining segment overdubbed onto the other complete performance. So you hear the band playing coherently, then it becomes all disjointed, goes all over the place, and comes back to the opening theme, with that crash landing of an ending, which segues into Barrett’s funny little song, “The Gnome.” Two completely different sides of what the band was about, but played with equal conviction.”
David Gilmour reveals if Eric Clapton disrespected Pink Floyd. The fan concluded: “Roger Waters Was credited with co-writing two compositions, along with one of his own, and in an interview, Nick Mason gave a TV journalist, they all concede that it isn’t a great song, but he, of course, went on to become a terrific songwriter. “Take Up Thy Stethoscope And Walk” is fast and choppy, naive lyrics, somewhat off-key singing, and very amateurish. But does have a high degree of energy, and it fits the premise of Floyd’s debut.”
True, but as the recent letters show, he did not make false promises to Marianne.
