He was born in Cambridge, England. For Pink Floyd (which was Syd Barrett), he wasn't the original guitarist, but eventually, he was their lead guitarist and frontman. When he borrowed one from his neighbor, Gilmour started playing the guitar and never returned it. Gilmour enjoyed adding impressions to his music, which was common throughout the "Dark Side of the Moon album." He's best known for songs like "Comfortably Numb" and "Shine On You Crazy Diamond." As a young musician, he once came to the clinic for malnutrition, and now he's worth more than $122 million.
