"Well, we had decided to make the album, and that each one would have to write a piece of music alone ... it was actually a desperate attempt to write something myself, because I had never written anything before. I went into the studio and I began to play, adding bits and pieces. For years I did not hear, nor idea how it is. "- David Gilmour - Sounds 'Guitar Heroes' Magazine, May 1983.
