Not such a daft idea!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pink Floyd: the Black Strat: A History of David Gilmour's Black Fender Stratocaster (Hardcover)The first page has a quote from the owner of the black Strat in question, Mr David Gilmour: "....It seems a daft idea to me, writing a book about an ordinary guitar....". Fortunately, Mr Gilmour's erstwhile guitar technician, Phil Taylor did not agree and went ahead with the book. It is more than just a book about one guitar. It details several of Gilmour's early guitars and includes numerous photographs which I, as a Gilmour/ Floyd fan of over 30 years, have never seen before. True, this may not appeal to mainstream Floyd fans, but to those of us guitar nuts who rate Gilmour as one of the finest guitarists ever, this book was well worth waiting for. Fascinating. Thanks, Phil Taylor!
