Book Description

31 July 2009 Faq Series
More than four decades since their first album, and 35 years after the release of the iconic "Dark Side of the Moon", Pink Floyd continue to inspire and mystify rock fans around the world. "Pink Floyd FAQ", by pop culture author Stuart Shea, lays out the band's strange, winding history through a new series of prisms. What were the band's most memorable gigs? What are their greatest moments on record, as a group and individually? What contemporary records influenced them, and which performers follow in their wake? What was it like to be at a Pink Floyd show in 1967, in 1973, in 1980? "Pink Floyd FAQ" tells the band's story, dissects their most popular work, and provides little-known facts, all adding up to a provocative must-read for fans. With 400 pages of stories, history, observation, opinion, photos, and reminiscences from those who were there, "Pink Floyd FAQ" will discuss frankly what made the band great - as well as note their not-so-great moments - and their place in modern pop culture, giving credit where credit is due - and maybe puncturing some inflatable pigs along the way.

Product Description

Review

Shea boasts a graceful turn of phrase and exhibits a decidedly Shindig-friendly bias towards the Floyd's exploratory early years.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is great for the fan and the genral public. 1 Nov 2011
By D. Stock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The FAQ series aren't meant to be dry academia. They are a way for people who love the music, or are inrigued by it, to get a unique and fresh perspective on a certain body of work. It's really cool for those who openly enjoy an artist to put their personal thoughts, and their likes and dislikes into book form. In the Syd era, The Pink Floyd was as much about wit and humor as anything else and this book takes that original sense of fun and extends that over their whole career. If you want basic biography it's out there, but for me this has that plus intelligent arguments over what the author gets from the music and band. Perhaps the people who think they could do better should back it up with something of their own to offer. For those of us who are less pedantic, this is simply a fun and rewarding read about a great band through the eyes of someone who knows their stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pink Floyd FAQ book review 4 Aug 2009
By Joseph Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Heck of a lotta fun!

VERY entertaining! I like the bits that diss the Floyd's more, uh, wearisome, moments (Spanish Piece! YES!)

I think its a great read for the would-be fan

VERY highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Pink Floyd Book for Reading and Reference 19 Sep 2009
By DMZ Diva - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book. It explores the development of Pink Floyd and never forgets the orgins of Pink Floyd. If you never knew much about the first lead singer of Floyd, this book will inform you. Syd Barrett is the orginal lead singer of Floyd and this book will take you through his life and music. It is a good read. You might not agree with everything in this book, but you will be amazed by the detail. The author writes from the perceptive of a fan, which is what makes it enjoyable to read. He also talks about the musical details of the records that really make them come alive. I think it is a worth while book for any Pink Floyd fan.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT for the serious fan. 23 Jan 2010
By S. Gallo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I received this book for Christmas, and I have to say that I am glad I did not spend my own money on it. Most of this book is NOT factual. It merely states the opinions of the author. If this is what you are looking for then save the money and log on to one of the many Pink Floyd forums on the internet. There you can get for free what Mr. Shea asks you to pay for: an opinion!

There are a few chapters which warrant a read, such as "I was there... Mark Campbell: The 1972-73 tours through a fans eyes", and "I was there...John Leckie, Recording engineer". But with chapter titles like "What Pink Floyd songs stick out like sore thumbs?" and "What were the Floyd's drugs of choice?" this book can hardly be taken seriously, or at least it shouldn't be by anyone who is an ardent student of the Floyd.

1.0 out of 5 stars completely useless 28 Oct 2009
By T. Hallstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In my opinion, and I am sure there are many different ones, the book is one of the most useless publications about that band in years.
THAT IS WHY I HAD TO WRITE THAT SURVEY
I was looking forward to get a book that might offer some new insides of the bands history, as the cover promises ' Everything left to know,...and more'.
I was pretty sure that there is not too much left to know,.....and what would the the '....and more' ??
Alone that unbeatably stupid sentence should have warned me as it lacks any logic (my fault).
THAT IS WHY I HAD TO WRITE THAT SURVEY
As well, it would have helped to read about the author, another person who jumped on the train on making money with a rip-off of repetitive information of a commmerically successful band. Again, in my personal opinion, poor writing that makes it hard to get through, even the contributors are so weak that you can hardly find anything worth spending time on.
THAT IS WHY I HAD TO WRITE THAT SURVEY
The author should try to write about the 'Cubbies' next time, as he started well on the 'unauthorized biography?' of a stadium already.
Looking forward on your next publication, may be try the 'Kama Sutra FAQ' ?
Good luck
