David Gilmour's Cover Of Beatles Classic Streaming Online: David Gilmour News
Written by Paul McCartney and inspired by The Beach Boys song, "God Only Knows", Mojo reports the Pink Floyd guitarist actually sent his version of the tune - recorded with his son Joe - to the magazine two years ago.
"I really wish I had been in The Beatles," Gilmour tells Mojo. "[They] taught me how to play guitar, I learnt everything. The bass parts, the lead, the rhythm, everything. They were fantastic."
The tune is featured on the free Mojo disc, "David Gilmour & Friends", a collection of music designed to celebrate the guitarist's life, work and influence. Gilmour is featured on six songs on the project, which also presents tracks from Phil Manzanera, Robert Wyatt and The Pretty Things.
Gilmour is gearing up for the September 18 release of his fourth solo album, "Rattle That Lock." Stream the cover - here.
