Product description


This is a his-torical look at Pink Floyd, as seen through press reports of the major music papers during the years 1966 to 1983. Reported in this book are record reviews, band member interviews, reviews of live performances, reports of band projects, and more, in a chronological history culled from news articles of the time. Read what the press had to say about the beginnings of Pink Floyd in 1966, the rise of psychedelia in 1967, the replacement of Syd Barrett with David Gilmour in 1968 the various film soundtrack projects of the early 1970s the use of brass and choir sections for Atom Heart Mother in 1970, the landmark Dark Side of the Moon album in 1973, the Animals tour that culminated in the massive Pink Floyd show in Montreal in 1977, the amazing Wall album, concerts and movie in the early 1980s, and Roger Waters' final album with the band, The Final Cut, in 1983. Glean a unique insight into how the band handled these events, and how they were received by the public and the press. Perhaps most interesting are the interviews with the band members that are featured throughout the book.

Read interviews with Syd Barrett, David Gilmour, Nick Mason Roger Waters, Richard Wright, and others, as they give rare insights into events as they were taking place. These interviews are a history of Pink Floyd by the band members themselves, as the events were happening. For anyone interested in Pink Floyd, this is a revealing book about one of the most significant bands in the history of rock music.
