    Where is final solo??? Yep, i’ve heard it before (many, many, many
    times!!!), but why?

    Why do they record with their cellphones ? Just enjoy the moment.

    Is that Guy on bass?

  4. jtlampsu2 says:

    At least he didn’t need a lyric sheet to help him, unlike some who have
    sang this with DG. Well done Mr Cucumberpatch. :-)

  5. Davide Simonetti says:

    Why on earth did you cut out the solo?

  6. urimkika1 says:

    the guy could play Roger Waters if a movie is made about Pink Floyd

  7. Empathy37 says:

    Why would you stop recording in the middle of one of the best guitar solos
    of all time?

    …And Doctor Strange is always changing size

  10. Zach Brookes says:

    The verses weren’t AWFUL, and you can tell Benedict Cumberbatch is trying
    to phrase it in David Gilmour’s manner, it’s just I personally wouldn’t
    expect his vocal timbre to able to sing. Three out of five from me.

  11. Cerys Robinson says:

    I didn’t think I’d have a negative thing to say about Benedict Cumberbatch
    … until now.

    Wow, some of the comments are horrible! Awesome video and I LOVE Benedict
    Cumberbatch!! We need more Cumberbitches commenting on here!!!! Two of my
    favorite loves on stage together!!! ( David and Benedict) He did a GREAT

    And I had thought that nothing will surprise me anymore…

  14. Kevin Gillihan says:

    He’s cool but not ‘Pink Floyd’ cool.

  16. Carlos Tapia says:

    At 3:22 the bassist congratulates Cumberbatch and, at the moment the next
    note sounds, he clearly doesn’t pick it with his right hand nor does it
    with his left one. I hope the sound here isn’t post-fixed or even worse,
    pre recorded.

  17. Pete Ward says:

    Well, that was fuckin’ awful! – the verses

  18. Spooks says:

    good but nowhere near close to as good as the 1994 performance. That
    performance is the best ever imo

  19. BubbaZen10 says:

    I’m not hearing a terrible difference here. Can you play bass Ben?

  20. DOMINOSMOFO says:

    Well, at least we know he can’t sing.
    To be fair, it doesn’t sound as though he’s even trying.
