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.

    I wasn't disappointed with The Endless River because I didn't expect much from it, to be honest. It's not terrible, just okay. [2]

    All the members were important for the band, not only one or two, as @niQboy said, the collaboration creative of all of them made Pink Floyd what it is, shame that most people just talk about Waters or Gilmor and maintains a rivalry between the two that should not exist.

    Endless River's a pretty solid release and a good send off to Richard.

    Also, people slamming Endless River aren't contextualizing it properly. Consider that: 1) much of the album was a distant memory nearly 20 years old, 2) its primary contributor is DEAD, requiring creative editing/mixing/mastering to give it a "polished" sound, 3) it was never meant to be a fully produced LP in the classic PF sense, and 4) it's an instrumental album (save 1 track), which is not foreign to PF (much of "More" and "ObC" are the same way). People who line it up next to masterpieces like Animals, DSotM, or even TDB are comparing apples to oranges.

    VV Same. I love DSotM so much I put into my will that I want to be cremated along with a copy of it - no joke (and also a copy of Dvorak's 9th symphony). My wife is prepared to execute on that wish, too. I recognize Roger was conducting the interviews that led to the great sound clips for it, and that he came up with the concept of madness/death/despair, but after countless hours of listening and watching everything I can get my hands on related to DSotM, I'm convinced his influence on the record was indeed supported by superb musicianship. Richard's soundscapes are what draws me to that album, not even Gilmour's playing (which is saying something, since that's where DG really started to shine), let alone lyrical contributions. Hell, they could be singing about pink unicorns and I would still think the album is brilliant. And yes, while PF 3.0 dropped off lyrically, I do find the ambience and soundscapes equally as engaging. To each his own, I guess.
