Product description

Review

‘A biography rich in anecdotal detail’

(Classic Rock)

'Blake’s account, newly updated, may well be definitive.... It’s a fascinating tale of destructive egos.’

(Sun)

‘Such is Blake’s achievement in leaving no band affiliate’s tale untold the author virtually redefines the term ‘definitive biography.’

(Mojo)

  • 'Dutiful and thorough... paints a picture of a generation, helps us in some way towards understanding the decline and enigma of Syd Barrett, and gives us a picture of a band which, although trapped by their own devices into becoming the most lumbering of rock behemoths, at least were one of the few of their vintage who carried on giving a s***. We also get a portrait of one of rock’s great Difficult Characters (Waters) - as well as one of its most decent and generous (Gilmour). And a kid of happy ending.’


(Nicholas Lezard Guardian)

'The definitive account of one of Britain's best-loved bands.'

(Choice)

'No fan will feel short-changed by the welter of detail.'

(Independent)

‘A superb, incredibly detailed, and essential look at the band’s history - an indispensable addition to your bookshelves.’

(Brain Damage - Pink Floyd news)

‘Mark Blake brings Floydology into the 21st Century with this handsomely produced volume...’

(The Sunday Telegraph)

‘A detailed, orderly, first-rate read...’

(Q)

‘Thorough and well-researched... Lots of new material...’

(Observer)
