Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour Evacutes Home After Bomb Scare
Nothing will liven up an otherwise routine home renovation like finding a bomb under the house. That’s what Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour recently learned the hard way when he and his wife were forced to leave their mansion after workers discovered a World War II explosive device underneath the building.
Classic Rock Magazine reports that late last week, a construction crew working on Gilmour’s six-story pad in England’s East Sussex ran across the WWII-era bomb. Gilmour and wife Polly Samson made tracks while a Royal Navy bomb disposal team removed the pipe-shaped, 5-foot-long device, and no one was hurt.
Pretty bizarre since two of Floyd’s songs, ‘Goodbye Blue Sky’ and ‘Mother,’ both mention bombs in their lyrics, no?
