William Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 18″ + David Gilmour =

In 2001 or 2002, guitarist and singer David Gilmour of Pink Floyd recorded a musical interpretation of William Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 18″ at his home studio aboard the historic, 90-foot houseboat the Astoria. This video of Gilmour singing the sonnet was released as an extra on the 2002 DVD David Gilmour in Concert, but the song itself is connected with When Love Speaks, a 2002 benefit album for London’s Royal Academy for the Dramatic Arts.


H/t To Keithy 


  1. Not wanting to discount Shakespeare, but David Gilmour could compose a song, sing the first page of the want ads and get a hit.

  2. Fantastic! Thanks for posting :0)
