David Gilmour kept his promise and joined The Pretty Things for their final performance Thursday at the Indigo club inside London's O2 Arena.
The band was formed in 1963 by onetime Rolling Stones guitarist Dick Taylor and singer Phil May. David Bowie included the band's "Rosalyn" and "Don't Bring Me Down" on his Pin Ups covers collection
Gilmour came out to play on several songs from the band's 1968 S. F. Sorrow album, often cited as the first rock opera.
Van Morrison also appeared, joining in on "Baby, Please Don't Go," which he recorded while in Them, Bo Diddley's "I Can Tell" and "You Can't Judge a Book by the Cover." Gilmour and Morrison were both onstage for the band's rendition of Bo's "Road Runner."
