The same thing happened with Wish You Were Here. It was David's initial tune but it was altered a bit to fit the lyrics Roger already had.

Is that all that Roger was referring to when he said the lyrics came before the music in Wish You Were Here? Because then I think he could have said the same thing about Comfortably Numb. Unsure

I don't think it's been said when "The Doctor" was written, lyrically. My guess is it was written sometime in 1978, during the downtime the band had after The Animals tour and the start of recording sessions for The Wall. I know that the song was inspired by what happened to Roger during their show in Philadelphia in June of '77.

Nope, the lyrics to Comfy was adapted to the melody, the only thing that was added was the "and I've become comfortably numb" part.

Wish You Were Here took a little more of alteration to fit the lyrics. However, I don't know who did this. It may have been a collaboration.

David Gilmour is not the best guitarist, I don't believe in rating musicianship.

But he is indeed a very good guitarist.

Very good point, actually. There are so many different kinds of music that it gets hard to compare... For instance, try to compare Gilmour with B.B. King.

Yet you took the time to register an account on a Pink Floyd fan message board. I guess that means they don't really suck, or else you wouldn't be here.

You can't fool us, sunshine.

Exactly my point. Some guitarists are the masters of their respective genres, but the musical genres can't be compared really, a classical guitarist could beat the crap out of many electric guitarist.
