Own a Piece of Rock and Roll History

If you have an extra 100 grand on hand, that is. David Gilmour To Auction Off Over 120 Guitars.

One of the guitars expected to fetch the highest price is the Black Strat, the guitar Gilmour used on Meddle, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall. It’s expected to go for $100,000-$150,000.

Here’s a look at the Black Strat, from the 1971 Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii movie. (It’s an entire movie, but this is just a bit from “Echoes.”) Actually all of “Echoes” is good, but at 10 and a half minutes, I know most people in the 21st Century don’t have that kind of patience for Progressive Rock.
