The Pink Floyd man plays at a tribute concert for the Hitchhiker's Guide author

Gilmour joined a host of comedians and musicians at the Hammersmith Apollo in London on Sunday for a concert to mark Adams' 60th birthday and to raise money for the Save The Rhinos charity.

The three hour show saw comedy sketches, filmed inserts, interviews and reminiscences, drawing on all aspects of Adams' career plus a musical tribute performed by many of the musicians Adams once described as his 'dream band', many of whom used to perform at the writer's home: David and Robbie McIntosh (vocals, guitars); Gary Brooker (vocals, keyboards); Paul 'Wix' Wickens (keyboards); Jody Linscott (percussion); Dave Bronze (bass); Paul Beavis (drums); and Margo Buchanan, also on vocals and guitar.

Gilmour performed a solo rendition of the apposite 'Wish You Were Here' and he played on a version of Chuck Berry's 'Too Much Monkey Business' before joining Gary Brooker for a version of 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale'.
