Back In Time: David Gilmour and Tom Jones performs “Purple Rain”

The legendary Pink Floyd guitarist and singer, David Gilmour and the also legendary singer Tom Jones performed on the classic Prince song “Purple Rain” in a 1992 six-part BBC series hosted by Jones titled The Right Time.


The show aired in the U.S. on VH1. It explored various musical styles as Jones collaborated with artists like Cyndi Lauper, Daryl Hall, Joe Cocker and Stevie Wonder in what The New York Times called a “whirlwind briefing on the history of pop music.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
