David Gilmour Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

David Jon Gilmour was born on 6th March 1946, in Cambridge, England. He is a musician who became famous performing with the rock band Pink Floyd, with whom he has been the lead guitarist and co-lead vocalist for more than 40 years.

So just how rich is David Gilmour? His net worth is estimated by authoritative sources at $130 million, the money having been made from his career in the music industry which began in 1962. A large part of Gilmour’s wealth is the result of his performances with Pink Floyd: the band has sold more than 250 million albums worldwide over the years, which translates into more than $260 million., however, other noted contribution come from being a solo artist, with other bands, two music-related companies he owns, and his interest in aviation. Additionally, David Gilmour owns four properties, which include a $4.6 million house in West Sussex and a villa in Greece. He also had a house in Little Venice, London, sold for $5.5 million (£3.6 million), money which he donated to the charity.

David Gilmour Net Worth $130 Million

David Gilmour had a passion for music since childhood, and spent all his school years practicing guitar. While being a student at Cambridge Technical College, he met Syd Barrett and Roger Waters, with whom later in his life he was to perform in Pink Floyd. He quit college in 1965, and spent several years travelling around France and Spain, playing the guitar in pubs together with some friends.

In 1967, Gilmour received an offer to play with the Pink Floyd and became the fifth member of the rock band. One year later, Barrett left Pink Floyd and David Gilmour started performing most of the lead vocals. The band has released 15 studio albums, three live albums, and eight compilation albums, most of them becoming gold and platinum in the UK, France, US, Germany, Australia, Austria, Norway, and Sweden. He wrote songs for most of the albums, including “Animals”, “The Wall”, “Dark Side of the Moon”, and “The Division Bell”. He has produced several Pink Floyd albums over the years, including the band’s last compilation album.

The musician is also a solo artist and is known to own two companies, David Gilmour Music and David Gilmour Overseas, which brought him, between 1988 and 1999 alone, more than $55 million, significantly adding to his net worth. He also adds to his net worth from DVD sales, concerts, tours and royalties, and also produces for his rock band and other known artists, including Elton John, Kate Bush, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, Berlin, Seal, John Martyn, B.B. King, and Bob Dylan, which has added more to his net worth.

From the ‘70s, David Gilmour started focusing also on his solo career. He registered his first solo album in 1978, called “David Gilmour”, which was followed by “About Face”, in 1984, “On an Island”, in 2006, and “Rattle That Lock”, in 2015. Together with the fourth album, the musician started the “Rattle That Lock” Tour in Europe and has announced he will be touring in the US in 2016.

The musician also owned Intrepid Aviation, a company he created because of his passion for historical aircraft. He sold it once it became more a business than a hobby.

In his personal life, David Gilmour married Virginia “Ginger” Hasenbein, in 1974, and they had four children before divorcing in 1990. In 1994, the musician married Polly Samson and they also have four children. The artist and his wife donate about $1.5 million (£1 million) a year to charity, supporting numerous organizations, including Greenpeace, The Medical Foundation for the care of Victims of Torture, Shelter, Prisoners, Amnesty International, Abroad, and Environmental Investigation Agency.

1Going to perform as main attraction of the Live8 concert in Hyde Park with Pink Floyd. [June 2005]
2West Sussex, England [May 2009]
3At the moment he is a member of the Paul McCartney group but there is a rumour of a Pink Floyd 2003 album and tour. [March 2002]
4In 1966, he was so low on funds that he was eventually hospitalized for malnutrition.
5Owns numerous airplanes and is a licensed pilot. Also started a flying museum called Intrepid Aviation.
6Winner of the 2008 Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award.
7Pink Floyd were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame for their outstanding contribution to British music and integral part of British music culture. (16 November 2005).
8Lists Jimi Hendrix as a major influence. When he saw Hendrix perform at a London nightclub in 1966, Gilmour said that nobody who saw the performance that night left the club not thinking that Hendrix would go all the way to the top.
9He regards "Wish You Were Here" as his favourite Pink Floyd album and "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" as his favourite Pink Floyd song.
10Discovered singer-songwriter Kate Bush
11He is considered to be one of the most influential guitarists of the 20th century. Marillion guitarist Steve Rothery cites him as a major influence and claims listening to the "Wish You Were Here" album made him want to become a professional musician.
12Hobbies include car racing, flying airplanes, collecting guitars, and vintage aircrafts.
13Contrary to popular belief, he did not replace Syd Barrett as a member of Pink Floyd. He was asked by the members of Pink Floyd to join the band to supplement the guitar work of the increasingly erratic Syd Barrett. For a brief time, he and Syd were both members of Pink Floyd at the same time. When Barrett's mental breakdown made it impossible for him to continue with the group, Gilmour became a permanent, contributing member in time for their second album, 1968's "A Saucerful of Secrets". Syd Barrett also contributed one track to "A Saucerful of Secrets", his last with Pink Floyd. He departed soon after that.
14Pink Floyd's 1973 album, "Dark Side of the Moon", topped Classic Rock Magazine's list of the 30 greatest concept albums of all time. Their 1979 album, "The Wall", came tenth and their 1983 album, "The Final Cut", came 21st on the list. [March 2003]
15He was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to Music.
16The song "Comfortably Numb" from 'The Wall', was a reworking of a song written for his first solo album. The song was cut from the final song list.
17Voted the best East Anglian guitarist in Total Guitar Magazine's poll of the greatest 12 British guitarists. [July 2001]
18Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of Pink Floyd) in 1996.
19Worked as a model before joining Pink Floyd.

#Quote
1The period after Dark Side of the Moon when we made Wish You Were Here was a strange time. We had achieved everything really that one could hope to achieve. There was a bit of a distance between us all at that point, and Roger wasn't the only one who noticed this sense of absence. But that sense of absence is part of the album's magic. It helped create it. I don't know quite how it did. I can't regret that period at all.
2I had some criticisms of Dark Side of the Moon. It's kind of ludicrous in a way to have criticisms of an album that was so successful but I did voice them at the time. I thought that one or two of the vehicles carrying the ideas were not as strong as the ideas that they carried. I thought we should try and work harder on marrying the idea and the vehicle that carried it, so that they both had an equal magic, or whatever, to them. So it's something I was personally pushing when we made Wish You Were Here. It's underrated by some, but not by me. I think it's our most complete album.
3I've never had any religion. I'd prefer it if I did really. Even as a boy I just couldn't make myself believe. Mortality has been on my mind since I was thirteen.
4[on choosing not to live as a tax exile] I'm not keener on paying tax than anyone else, but my freedom's not for sale.
5Everything in moderation, that's what I live by. I'm just not a tortured, frustrated person who has to pour all these things out of his soul. None of that is a prerequisite to being good at rock 'n' roll.
6No-one can replace Richard Wright - he was my musical partner and my friend. In the welter of arguments about who or what was Pink Floyd, Rick's enormous input was frequently forgotten. He was gentle, unassuming and private but his soulful voice and playing were vital, magical components of our most recognised Pink Floyd sound.
7[speaking in 2005] It's nice to be loved and for one's contribution to be recognized in some way. I suppose I agree that we have had an influence on modern popular music.
8For me, 'Wish You Were Here' was very satisfying. I'd rather listen to it than Dark Side Of The Moon. I think we achieved a better balance of music and lyrics. 'Dark Side' went a bit too far the other way -- too much importance was placed on the lyrics. And sometimes the tunes were neglected.
9After Dark Side we were really floundering around. I wanted to make the next album more musical, because I felt some of these tracks had been just vehicles for the words. We were working in 1974 in this horrible little rehearsal room in Kings Cross without windows, putting together what became the next two albums, 'Wish You Were Here', and 'Animals'.
10[on Live 8 (2005)] Like most people I want to do everything I can to persuade the G8 leaders to make huge commitments to the relief of poverty and increased aid to the third world. It's crazy that America gives such a paltry percentage of its GNP to the starving nations. Any squabbles Roger and the band have had in the past are so petty in this context, and if re-forming for this concert will help focus attention then it's got to be worthwhile.
11[about the feud with Roger Waters] I'm not very good at holding grudges for very long, but he's done some terrible things.
12[about the Pink Floyd reunion for Live 8 (2005)] Any squabbles Roger (Roger Waters) and I have had in the past are so petty in this context.
