MOJO OCTOBER 2015: DAVID GILMOUR PROVIDES AN EXCLUSIVE BEATLES COVER

Some two years ago, David Gilmour very kindly sent Mojo a cover version of The Beatles’ Here, There And Everywhere the CD comes with the new edition of MOJO (October 15 / #263), on sale from Tuesday, August 25 (in the UK / interview+CD).

“I really wish I had been in The Beatles,” Gilmour said. “[They] taught me how to play guitar, I learnt everything. The bass parts, the lead, the rhythm, everything. They were fantastic.”

That love is manifested on the wonderful harmony-filled cover of the 1966 Revolver original recorded with his son Joe. Previously unreleased anywhere, it forms the cornerstone of a collection of music designed to celebrate the Pink Floyd leader’s life, work and influence, David Gilmour & Friends.

 



A number of Gilmour’s closest collaborators appear on the compilation while the guitarist is featured on six of the tracks himself, including songs from Phil Manzanera, Robert Wyatt and The Pretty Things.

Interview and exclusive CD. Plus! Alice Cooper, Paul McCartney and Johnny Depp’s supergroup
