Floyd Guitarist's Son Climbs Into Trouble

Charlie Gilmour, the son of former Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour's wife Polly Samson, has apologized after being photographed scaling the side of one of Britain's most prominent war memorials. Photos document the young man's grandstanding during protests over a House Of Commons vote that would raise student tuitions. A post attributed to his mother that appeared on Twitter read, 'Son in a mess after a day at protests. Battered and bleeding with a smashed phone. Not making much sense. Am fearful.'  Her son issued a statement about the incident that should satisfy most that he intended no disrespect. It read in part, 'I did not realize that it was the Cenotaph and if I had, I certainly would not have done what I did', and goes on to say he feels, '...nothing but shame' for what he described as ' moment of idiocy'.  Charlie Gilmour was adopted by David Gilmour after the guitarist and Samson married in 1994.
