By the way, speaking of mothers, I was watching the recent David Gilmour doc and towards the end of it there was a whole segment about his mother. In it, he was asked wether he miss her or not, he thought about it for a while and said "No". How come he won't miss his own ma? :think

Perhaps he meant he’s come to terms with her loss?

not really, he is very harsh in more than 1 sentence

Yes, Gilmour kind of says that something happened between him and his mother, and they didn't had a good relationship.
You might get lucky, now and then

Indeed, when quoting stuff like that, it is always good to quote the full thing. Anyways, this documentary was amazing, absolute recommendation

Well I've seen the documentary, but still these words genuinely surprised me. You can have a bad relationship with someone, but to get to the point of answering that you don't miss that person is strange to me. Especially when this person is actually your mother for Mark's sake! Creative people are strange.

Seems like a nice interview. I may get a copy or just buy the digital version. I had German from when I was 13 to 18, but that's a long time ago now.

His mom was not "the loving kind"
He was put on boarding school from age 5 and theY did not bother to get him out for three terms, including Xmas. His brother was even only 4. Watch the whole thing. He did not hate her, but not exactly loved her either. Do not speculate about situations you are not privacy to, just my two cents

As soon as I have some free time I'll watch this doc, sounds interesting.

I didn't know about his mother issues, that's sad. Yeah, not every mum is the loving kind, that's for sure. I'm blessed to have a lovely one but I do know people who can't say the same and whose stories go far beyond Gilmour's in terms of lack of maternal love. If she didn't provide him with what you should expect from your mother I don't blame him for not missing her.

I have seen it before, but I watched again this afternoon and it reminded me of how much I enjoyed it!   David is very like his mother, especially when she is old - something about the eyes!    ;)

I think I remember Guy saying that he and Mark have visited David's houseboat studio.
