David Gilmour performed an acoustic version of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" at the Royal Festival Hall, London, June 22, 2001.

I'm not sure Gilmour gets the recognition for the great guitarist that he is. He replaced the legendary Syd Barrett in Pink Floyd at Barrett's Recomendation, and went on to be one of the major forces behind one of the most successful recordings of all time: 'Dark Side of the Moon'. I believe this song is a reflection on Roger Waters' (the lyricist) feelings toward Barrett at that time. Good choice!

Thanks! Enjoy. "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" also reflects Barrett and is performed by Gilmour at the same concert:
