Biography

Cambridge, England, United Kingdom (1965 – 1994, 2014 – present)

Pink Floyd are 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 ofthe best-selling artists of all time. Currently the band consists of David Gilmour (vocals, guitar) and Nick Mason (drums).

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.

    Raj404: I may like Rihanna, but Pink Floyd is far far far far from boring. They have done much good music that will be more remembly than any of the popartist today, the songs are not wellwritten to listen on 30 years.

    Иногда мне кажется, что Барретт - это я. Впрочем, я поехавший.

    That 60's psychedelic band named Pink Floyd was way better than that prog one from the mid 70's. [2]

    Uma banda que sem dúvidas conseguiu fazer álbuns que tratam de assuntos sociopolíticos, relacionamento familiar etc de uma forma tão criativa, singular e ao mesmo tempo tão leve... Tudo dessa banda é perfeito <3
