Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour Evacutes Home After Bomb Scare

Nothing will liven up an otherwise routine home renovation like finding a bomb under the house. That’s what Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour recently learned the hard way when he and his wife were forced to leave their mansion after workers discovered a World War II explosive device underneath the building.

Classic Rock Magazine reports that late last week, a construction crew working on Gilmour’s six-story pad in England’s East Sussex ran across the WWII-era bomb. Gilmour and wife Polly Samson made tracks while a Royal Navy bomb disposal team removed the pipe-shaped, 5-foot-long device, and no one was hurt.

Pretty bizarre since two of Floyd’s songs, ‘Goodbye Blue Sky’ and ‘Mother,’ both mention bombs in their lyrics, no?

Gilmour stayed publicly silent during the ordeal, but Samson posted a series of tweets and photos. We’re glad this incident ended with a whimper rather than a bang.
