The story of Pink Floyd as seen through the eyes of Nick Mason (the drummer of Pink Floyd). This is really good stuff. Starting of with his birth, Mason records his entire musical career and that of Pink Floyd right up to the Live 8 Concert in 2005. That means everything, including the rather difficult separation of Roger Waters from the band. If you are looking for one of these gossipy books then this is not for you. On the other hand if you are into dry humour and witty observation then this book is definitely for you. I read in one go – largely because I had the time to do it – but also I just love the way Mason tells the story. At times it struck me a touch too technical but that’s probably because I know nothing about that side of things. But apart from that, I found it to be a real page turner.
