One of the most influential rock bands that have ever existed, in my opinion!
Until their first album, The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, led by Syd Barrett.
From there on having David Gilmour on the guitar, together with Roger Waters composing the music for Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here and Animals.
Roger Waters composed The Wall and The Final Cut almost completely by himself. And after that he left the band.
Pink Floyd produced 2 more albums after The Final Cut.
They have performed recently on the Live8 festival, and they're touring again. Unfortunately, I'm not going to see them here in Holland. I don't know if Roger Waters is touring with them now or if it's just him and other band members.
I wonder what you all think of this band. What album you like best and what period you prefer (With Syd or with Roger Waters)?
But wether you like this band or not, they truly have had a damn lot of influence on the music of today.
