Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd started out like something around 1965. The original band line up consisted of the following names :

George Rogers Waters born on 9 September 1943.

Roger Keith (Syd.) Barrett. born on 6 January 1946.

Richard William Wright born on 28 July 1945

Nicholas Berkeley Mason born on 27 January, 1945


David Jon Gilmour born on 6 March, 1946 who joined them later.

Syd. Barrett joined the Cambridge High School for Boys along with Gilmour and Waters. LLater he took on painting and playing guitars. Waters left Cambridge to study architecture in london where in his class he met Richard William Wright and Nicholas Berkeley Mason. They formed a music group called „Sigma 6″ which they later changed to „T-Set“ and then „The Meggadeaths,“ then to „The Architectural Abdabs,“ then to „The Screaming Abdabs,“ and simply „The Abdabs.“ but all this name changing did not brought success to them. Their actual line up was :

Roger WWaters, Lead Guitars

Richard Wright, keyboards

Nick Mason, drums

Juliette Gale, vocals

Keith Noble, vocals

Clive Metcalf, bass

Yup none of them sunged at that time. Later Juliette, Keith, Clive left and group brought Syd. BBarrett and Bob Close to the group afterwards even Bob left it. Now at this point Barrett renamed the band to Pink Floyd. The name was inspired by two blues artists, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council, who Barrett liked. Now they were Pink Floyd. In 1966 they played at many joints and hangouts they were furthermore inspired to release their album which they did in 1967.

In 1967 Pink Floyd released their album „Piper At the Gates of Dawn“. The album had good songs like „Arnold Layne“ which is about a person who stole ladies underwear from washing lines and „Matlida Mother“ which was ranked among the top 10 psychedelic songs of 1960 at No. 8 . it also featured „„Astronomy Domine“ which is even today played at Pink Floyd Concerts. The album did one thing for sure it got Pink Floyd noticed the album entered the charts at no. 20. Barrett was very much of in control of the group right now. He wrote 10 of the 11 songs featured and also did the album cover design of the cassette. The success of „Piper At the Gates of Dawn“ was too much for Syd. as he took vast amounts oof drugs and started acting maniacally on stage and got more unpredictable and unpredictable. Now it was pretty clear that Syd. could no longer be actively playing for band and search for a different guitarist brought a obvious choice David Jon Gilmour who was also in Male Modeling into that time. Later out the band decided that they can do without Syd. Barrett and decided to leave him. later on Syd. came with two different records with help of floyd members as they were the producers of his album.

In 1968 Floyd released their second record „A Saucer full of Secrets“. The album was medium business generator. Floyd at this time stopped doing Singles. Their concerts were now featured with light show on the background having million bubbles or something else adding a other dimension to their psychedelic music.

In July1969 they released the soundtrack they had written for Barbet Schroeder movie „More“, also Peter Whitehead_s „Tonite Let_s All Make Love In London“. Also in the same year they released Ummagumma which was a double cassette album featuring their live shows. Ummagumma was slang for „Fuck You“ in Cambridge where they studied, only roger gave few individual songs in the aalbum.

In 1970 they released „Atom heart mother“ featuring very few songs which were written jointly by Pink floyd with Ron Geesin. In 1971 they wrote „Meddle“ and in the same year they released their compilation album „Relics“

In 1972 they released „Obscured By the Clouds“ and in the same year they shot at pompeii a video take which includes video of the songs of the Floyd which included „One of these days“, „Set the controls from the heart of the sun“.

Then came the album which rocked the world. „Dark Side of Moon“ changed

the sound of rock forever. DSOM featured songs which had psychedelic sounds

which were never heard before in rock. From a simple cover with just a light

coming out of a prism in spectrum colors with no group name no album title.

From different guitar tunes to outstanding piano and drums matched with

unparalleled lyrics of songs. The Album became an instant hit obviously reaching

no.1 in U.S. and U.K. immediately as it was released. The album also holds the

record for longest staying on Billboard top 200 chart run of about 746 in a

row (compare this to world no.1 Micheal Jackson Thriller rrecord of 222 weeks

and Led Zeppelin II record of 250 weeks). DSOM went up to became the 3rd

largest selling album in the world and also the largest selling rock and roll

record in the history. DSOM kept selling a million records ever year and

reached a total of 30 million records album. DSOM was basically a Roger

Waters project as he wrote the major chunk of lyrics in the record, others did

also actively contribute but not as much as the Waters did.

After DSOM the Floyd went up to became a very very big name in the music industry. This obviously raised the pressure and aspirations from the group. Resulting from this their next record Wish You Were Here was released about two and half year later and was dedicated to their previous member Syd. Barrett. The Song „Shine on You Crazy Diamond“ had 9 solid parts and the whole song was of length of about 25-30 minutes on the record of the album others songs were also good like „Have a Cigar“ and “ Wish You Were Here“. Wish You Were Here was though appreciated by the public but it did not matched anywhere near the

DSOM. Song „Shine On You Crazy Diamond“ is still remembered for its Music. Cover of the Album featured a man shaking hand with other burning person. Roger Waters acquired the more control of the group as it was he who dedicated the „Shine on you crazy diamond“ to Syd. Barrett. The Record was released in 1975.

After „Wish You Were Here“ Floyd came up with their other album „Animals“ in 1977 featuring different types of songs like „pigs on the wwings“,“pigs three different ones“,“dogs“ and „sheep“

Album was truly disliked by many and I know many person who consider it was too much good to be understood by the general listener and they consider pigs as one of their all time favorite song.

Though album was not much of a commercial success but it did made some fans really crazy about it. After Pigs Roger Water Approached the Group with idea of two different albums. The Group immediately choose wall aas their next album and waters started working on it night and day.

Then Came up a album which is mine personal favorite and of millions others to. Even after 20 years its songs are hummed night and day. The aalbum which reached No.1 in each country expect Japan. The Album Which stayed on Billboard top 200 charts for solid 450 weeks. The Album which made Richard Wright Kicked out of the Pink Floyd. The album was


The album was different from others Floyd albums in a big respect as it was Having a full recording of about 80 minutes rather than 45 minutes of their previous album and 26 songs in all. The Album had a story of a life of a Rock Star and also featured a full video of whole album as a animation film.

The album surprisingly had only one No.1 hit in U.S. of „Another Brick In The Wall -II“.

The album rremained No.1 in U.S. for 14 weeks. The Album was truly a Waters Project as he wrote most of the songs on the wall and contribution of Gilmour was relatively much less and Nick Mason and Richard Wright did not have anything expect ...
