Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour wrote this and sang lead. Gilmour played every instrument on the track with the exception of keyboards, which were played by Richard Wright. (thanks, adri - zadar, Croatia)
David Gilmour (from The Sun September 26, 2008): "I've always liked the song, one of the first I ever wrote. I tried to persuade the rest of the Pink Floyd guys that it should go on Echoes: The Best Of Pink Floyd but they weren't having it. I played the drums on the original recording but the drums are so bad."
His song "Into The Night" is one of the most-played of all time. For Benny, it took him to hell and back.
