    Bad news for Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour and his adopted son Charlie. Charlie has lost an appeal against his prison sentence for taking part in a riot during student protests in London last year.

    Young Chuck was sentenced to 16 months behind bars for violent disorder for his part in a mass demonstration over a huge hike in university tuition fees. Charlie, 21, stomped all over a war memorial and also urged other protesters to attack the British capital's Houses of Parliament. Rebellious youth! He was essentially a pissed off youth, rioting in the streets.

    Gilmour went back to court to fight his sentence, filing an appeal earlier this month. However, the BBC reports that the judges at the Court of Appeal turned down his request on Friday, ruling his punishment was not "unduly harsh."

    What do you think of the punishment? Does it fit the "crime?"
