Memoirs of the Bright Side of the Moon Ginger Gilmour's Book
Do you believe in love at first sight? A love so strong it sweeps you off your feet and catapults your life into romance beyond your wildest dreams. Memoirs of the Bright Side of the Moon is such a story. From the moment you hold the book, you will sense something special within its pages as its compassion will defy what you would expect. Welcome to the true story of Ginger Gilmour, the former wife of the legendary guitar player David Gilmour of Pink Floyd.
The journey begins with her meeting David backstage while the band was playing at the University of Michigan. Swept off her feet she took him up on his offer to come with him for neither could leave each others side. Four years later, they married and began a family in England taking them on the road. It was like a fairy tale. A spontaneous explosion of love, music, heart, and song.
In this book, there are 90 individual chapters about her life, the way she lived it, and how being part of the Pink Floyd experience affected her. A series of individual stories painting the nature of Gingers heart, and undeniably provoking emotions from the soul. Each chapter enhanced with crystal-clear photographs giving you a sense of being there with her through their 18 years together.
A life that witnessed the creation of one of the greatest collections of music ever recorded in the history of rock and roll. From "Echoes" to Dark Side of the Moon with “Money” launching the band into mega success internationally. ‘Wish You Were Here’ finished on their wedding day with a visit from Sid Barrett at Abbey Road Studios. Animals with Pigs flying going on to the recording of The Wall, the film, the court case, and finally the breakup of the band. This compounded upon their marriage leaving problems unresolved in its wake. Ginger fought hard to keep things together unsuccessfully for the sake of the family and the children. Sadly, they chose to go their separate ways.
The story does not end there. Heartbroken and determined she found healing in her own creativity. She poured herself into her art as a refuge. As time went on, she discovered her calling as she watched a somber reverence to her creations. Her vision of Angels and bringing Heaven to Earth had manifested as it reflected her desire to uplift the viewer. Her art inspires Hope to those who seek Hope and soothes those who seek the highest. Ginger went on to contribute her talents to endless charitable events receiving the British Red Cross 'Services to Humanity' award. Her work has been featured in galleries internationally and drawn the attention and support from the Royal family in the UK.
Memoirs of the Bright Side of the Moon is more than a tale of rock royalty, motherhood, and creative expression. It is a tale of standing on top of the mountain, falling from its magnificent heights, and finding yourself again. It leaves you with a yearning for the artist to pick up her brush and paint us another verse about her personal experiences, her art, her life, and the Beauty that radiates from her story. A must for the Pink Floyd fan and the curious, encouraging us all to meet….
on the Bright Side of the Moon.
