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."
Did they really trade their guitarist to The Doobie Brothers? Are they named after something naughty? And what's up with the band name?
