David Gilmour made honorary Pompeii citizen

David Gilmour

David Gilmour has been made an honorary citizen of the Italian city of Pompeii.

The honor was bestowed upon him yesterday by the city’s mayor, Ferdinando Uliano.

“Thanks to everyone,” Gilmour said. “Here in Pompeii I feel safe, as if I was at home.”

Gilmour is set to play two shows tonight and tomorrow at the ancient amphitheater where Pink Floyd shot its live concert film in 1971.

Insect named after Pink Floyd album

Posted July 5, 2016 by Floydian Slip

35

Pink Floyd’s 1969 album “Ummagumma” finds itself in an unusual place: a list of Top 10 New Insect Species for 2016.

The State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry has put the Sparklewing damselfly on its list at #10.

As a species of the genus “Umma,” it was easy enough for Klaas-Douwe Dijkstra to give it the species name of “gumma,” honoring a friend’s request from 16 years ago: “If you ever discover a new species of the genus Umma,” the companion suggested, “call it Ummagumma like the Pink Floyd album!”

The 2-inch-long Ummagumma is widespread on Central African rainforest streams, and, we assume, can also be found gathered together in caves grooving with picts.
