Subject: Pink Floyd star David Gilmour uses ex-prisoner choir

Written By: Philip Eno on 08/06/15 at 5:04 am

Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour has revealed that his new single features former inmates from the prison where his son served time.

Gilmour recorded Rattle That Lock with The Liberty Choir, a rehabilitation project that includes former Wandsworth Prison inmates and local singers.

The rock legend said the choir gives prisoners "real hope and optimism".

His son Charlie did time in Wandsworth in south London in 2011 after being arrested at a tuition fees protest.

He spent four months in jail after being convicted of violent disorder for his part in the 2010 protest, where he swung from a flag on the Cenotaph and threw a bin at a royal convoy.
