Guitar World - December 2015 - David Gilmour


We graced the December 2015 issue of Guitar World with Rock ‘n’ Roll Royalty. We are celebrating the return of a King! Pink Floyd legend David Gilmour is flying solo. His new adventurous album, Rattle That Lock, is quite different from anything that Gilmour has done before, both as a solo artist and with Pink Floyd. The mood is surprisingly upbeat on several songs and the lyrical content is quite mature. Read more on David’s return and what he has planned next in our feature interview.

Despite being a perennial punching bag for hard rock purists, the members of Shinedown have their heads on straight and are right on track to enjoy another successful year as their fifth album, “Threat To Survival”, burns up the charts. While guitarist Zach Myers sums it up perfectly “We’ve been a faceless radio band for so long, but you know what, we’ve sold eight million records.”

Don’t miss out on Van Halen Rising! We have an exclusive excerpt from Van Halen Rising by Greg Renoff, the historian documents how the young band suddenly found itself being plucked out of Hollywood obscurity by Kiss bassist Gene Simmons.
