Biography

Cambridge, England, United Kingdom (1965 – 1994, 2013 – 2014)

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 of the 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.

    Was Dark Side your first Pink Floyd record? If so you might try a couple of the earlier albums to get an appreciation for where they were coming from (Meddle and maybe Obscured by Clouds), but if you just want to hear some great music, move on chronologically to Wish You Were Here. Then you can go back and catch the pre-Dark Side stuff later.

    If you didn't care what happened to me, / And I didn't care for you, / We would zig zag our way through the boredom and pain / Occasionally glancing up through the rain. / Wondering which of the buggers to blame / And watching for pigs on the wing
