Biography

Cambridge, England, United Kingdom (1965 – 1994)

Pink Floyd was a / band formed in Cambridge, England, United Kingdom in 1965. Pink Floyd is one of ’s most successful and influential acts, having sold over 200 million albums worldwide and with 74.5 million certified units in the United States, making them one of the best-selling artists of all time.

The band’s classic lineup was Roger Waters (vocals, bass), David Gilmour (vocals, guitar), Rick Wright (organ, keyboards, vocals) and Nick Mason (drums). Gilmour was brought into the band in 1968 to replace the band’s founder, singer, guitarist and songwriter Syd Barrett, who had become increasingly erratic and departed from the band a few months after Gilmour’s addition. The band became known for their advancements in the genres of psychedelic rock and progressive rock music, philosophical lyrics, compositions, sonic experimentation, innovative cover art and elaborate live shows.

Pink Floyd enjoyed modest success in the late-1960s as a psychedelic band led by Syd Barrett. Barrett’s increasingly erratic behavior eventually caused his colleagues to replace him after The Piper at the Gates of Dawn with guitarist David Gilmour. The band went on to record several elaborate concept albums; achieving worldwide success with 1973’s The Dark Side Of The Moon (The second best-selling album of all time), 1975’s Wish You Were Here, 1977’s Animals, and 1979’s The Wall, among the best-selling, most critically acclaimed, and enduringly popular albums in rock music history.

    As the poofta who linked that "overrated and boring group", let me explain myself, please: I, myself, do not think anything is overrated/underrated as that would imply that I care about other people's opinions on music. But yes, Pink Floyd sounds boring to me. Music is subjective.

    @Angel_Blue- Exatamente isso. Esse pessoal enche o saco colocando comentários tão idiotas nas páginas, e em certos momentos não tem como não se irritar com tamanha idiotice.

    Its really hard to communicate with a band like Pink Floyd, since most of the works are not catchy and might sound weird at the first listen, specially the early material and psychedelic records with Syd. "Overrated" is hardly a good criticism of anything. [3] if you dont like it, that doe not fucking mean its overrated. come up with a good criticism, like why its literally overrated with a good reason to convince me. otherwise stfu. Pink floyd is something beyond the music.

    "Overrated" is hardly a good criticism of anything. I can handle people who have legitimate criticisms of things I like, though I disagree with them. Overrated just means that "I don't like X as much as other people like X." and therefore EVERYTHING could be considered overrated to at least one person out there. [2]

    @SoporAeternus- Não gosto de ficar de papo em shoutbox de artistas, mas vou te responder. Eu acho que se eles tem a liberdade de chamar o Pink Floyd de superestimado, eu posso achar que as existências deles são superestimada e chatas por assim dizer também ué, afinal liberdade de expressão é isso. Não quero dar uma de fã fanática nem nada aqui porque eu não sou desse tipo, geralmente nem ligo pra esses tipos de comentários, mas esse povo enche o saco as vezes, ficar colocando "overrated" nas shoutbox dos artistas é mais que modinha aqui na lastfm, coisa de gente retardada... Quer criticar o artista tudo bem, beleza, todo mundo tem sua opinião, mas tenha argumentos interessantes pelo menos, não fica com essa frescura no cu.

    How did I thought this whole time that I needed my ears when I could've just used my trusty internet to let me know what's good. After all, can you think of a single more honest, innocent and non-ill willed place than the internet?
