Here's something you don't see every day.
On July 4, 2009, attendees of Jeff Beck's sold-out show at London's Royal Albert Hall got a bit of a bonus during the encore: a visit by Pink Floyd legend David Gilmour.
Gilmour—whose appearance was a complete surprise to everyone in the audience—picked up his black Strat, and the band played an extended guitar-heavy instrumental titled "Jerusalem," a Sir Hubert Parry-penned hymn from 1916 that was inspired by William Blake's poem of the same name.
Up next (and last) was "Hi Ho Silver Lining," Beck's debut solo single from 1967, which is always a crowd favorite, especially in the U.K. Beck actually sings on the track, and he was joined on vocals by Gilmour for this occasion. Gilmour even played lead guitar on the song that night.
The pair also performed together at the Albert Hall on April 1, 2004, when they participated in the Teenage Cancer Trust concert. Enjoy!
Gilmour is, of course, on the cover of the all-new December 2015 issue of Guitar World.
