Timothy John Pearson 'Tim' Renwick (born 7 August 1949 in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England) is an
English guitarist.

Career

Renwick started playing guitar in the 1960s. He performed with many bands, including Little Women, Wages of Sin, Junior's Eyes, The Hype, Quiver (later Sutherland Brothers & Quiver) and Lazy Racer. He also worked as a session musician for Al Stewart, Elton John, Procol Harum, David Bowie, Mike Oldfield, Gary Brooker, Roger Waters, Eric Clapton, David Byron and, most notably, Pink Floyd. Working with Elton John, he was also credited as the co-composer with him of the song "Dreamboat" (released on the "I'm Still Standing" single, but most likely recorded in the late 1970s).

In 1984, Renwick toured with Roger Waters during his "The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking" tour. In 1987, David Gilmour invited Renwick to tour with Pink Floyd as a session musician, and recordings from the August 1988 shows were released in the double live album "Delicate Sound of Thunder". This makes Renwick, along with Michael Kamen, Patrick Leonard and Jon Carin, one of the few musicians who performed with both Waters and the band after their split. After the tour, Renwick joined the Tex Maniacs (1988) and Mike and the Mechanics (1989). Renwick would play again with Pink Floyd on their 1989 European tour, on the 1994 studio album "The Division Bell", and on the Division Bell tour, which again resulted in a double live album, "P*U*L*S*E". He also made a live appearance with the Alan Parsons band in the 1998 Michael Jackson Gala (replacing the original guitarist Ian Bairnson). He played electric guitar on Rick Wright’s 1996 album Broken China. In 2005 he appeared once more with Pink Floyd, as guitarist and bassist for their Live 8 reunion.

Renwick has recorded an eponymously-titled solo album, released in 1980, and in 2007 compiled an instrumental album titled "Privateer", published by Audio Network Plc. and available from his website.
