David Gilmour net worth: David Gilmour is an English musician, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has a net worth of $140 million. Born March 6, 1946 in Grantchester, United Kingdom, Gilmour was asked to join the band Pink Floyd in 1967 as the guitarist and singer when founding guitarist Syd Barrett was faltering because of heavy drug use. Gilmour wrote Pink Floyd's huge hit Comfortably Numb. In his teen years, Gilmour learned to play the guitar and played in a band called Joker's Wild, after which he traveled around Europe for a year as a busker (street performer). Pink Floyd experienced enormous commercial success with songs like Wish You Were Here and critically acclaimed albums such as The Dark Side of the Moon. When band member Roger Waters began to assert more control over Pink Floyd, tensions mounted and Gilmour started some of his own musical projects. When Waters left the group in 1986, Gilmour stepped up to the helm and produced Pink Floyd's 13th album, A Momentary Lapse of Reason. Gilmour and band mate Nick Mason subsequently filed a lawsuit to prevent Waters from using the name Pink Floyd. Gilmour has been married twice. He married Ginger Hasenbein in 1974 and they had four children before divorcing in 1990. Gilmour later married novelist Polly Samson and they had four children of their own. Gilmour eventually admitted to having a cocaine addiction, but quit when he met his second wife, Polly.
