The new David Gilmour documentary "Wider Horizons" premiered on MTV Live cable channel (the former Palladia Channel) on Saturday, April 2nd in the USA.

An excellent in-depth insight into Gilmour's musical psyche, and the people surrounding his creativity and, of course, his music and singular guitar tone. A lot of filming is inside his home studio and aboard the Astoria studio Yacht anchored on the Thames. And Gilmour even plays some cover-song demo recordings he sang and played on with the Joker's Wild, in the pre-Floyd days.

Not surprisingly, he brushes off the interviewer when the interviewer started a questioning line into the Pink Floyd break-up and litigation that loomed in the early 1980s. I think Gilmour has said all he cares to say about that unhappy situation.

In one of the studio settings, Gilmour is seen playing a FireGlo 360 model. Can't tell if its a 12 string or a six string as most of the neck and headstock are behind a music stand or other equipment. Apparently the Rick is used on one of the tracks on his latest album "Rattle That Lock". In another scene in the documentary, a view of the scores of guitar cases in the storage racks, at one of his studios or rehearsal venues --- and the viewers can see the beat up, tiny old case of one of his 1930s Rickenbacker Bakelite steels. All the guitars are labeled and Rickenbacker is clearly seen on this one on the bottom shelf of the storage racks.

For any Floyd or Gilmour fans, this documentary is worth seeing.
