Monday marked the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11’s landing on the moon.
Back on that infamous July 20, 1969 day when Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon, Pink Floyd was apparently in a BBC television studio jamming to the historic landing.
David Gilmour recently shared the experience on The Guardian website in a first-person narrative called “My moon-landing jam session.”
“They were broadcasting the moon landing and they thought that to provide a bit of a break they would show us jamming,” Gilmore writes. “It was only about five minutes long. The song was called Moonhead – it’s a nice, atmospheric, spacey, 12-bar blues.”
Gilmore also says in the piece that he hadn’t heard the song since, but that it is on You Tube.
