David Gilmore talking about the way Pink Floyd creatively explored while recording. He recalls the origins of Pink Floyd's epic song inspired by founding member Syd Barrett, "Shine on You Crazy Diamond." The occasion of going into a rehearsal room and just jamming was something we did a lot of in the early years and a lot of our early music came out of that. And a lot of ‘Shine on You Crazy Diamond’ came out of that and a lot of the Wish You Were Here album and the Animals album all came out of those sort of sessions where we would just go and kick ideas around in a rehearsal room till something started making sense.” On Sunday, his birthday, he posted a new video for the song "In Any Tongue" from his solo album Rattle That Lock. It's the fourth clip for the album, following "Today," "The Girl in the Yellow Dress" and "Faces of Stone." Like "The Girl in the Yellow Dress," it's animated, but this one is in black, sepia and white. You can find it on YouTube.
