The story of rock music giants Pink Floyd

With two of the most successful albums in rock history, the members of Pink Floyd are among a select few rock musicians to have left an indelible mark on the cultural life of their times.
Their dazzling emergence in the mid 1960s put them at the fulcrum of British youth’s social and artistic experimentation. In early days, songs like “See Emily Play”, written by their singer Syd Barrett, helped revolutionize the content of pop music. Later, the group’s instrumentals extended the range of what was conceivable in the genre. Worldwide acclaim followed with the albums The Dark Side Of the Moon and The Wall.
This brief history describes the group’s path from Barrett’s inspired but short-lived leadership to the group’s eventual disintegration and sporadic revivals. Among highlights, it chronicles the rivalry between bassist Roger Waters and guitarist David Gilmour, Waters’ departure, and Gilmour’s determination to steer the band to a career-capping high note.

Andrew Means grew up in Britain, and now lives in Arizona in the American Southwest.
As a journalist, he has written about music for numerous publications. He has also written books about the country singer Marty Robbins and rock group Pink Floyd.
His memoir about the Arizona childhood of Marty Robbins, “Some Memories – Growing Up With Marty Robbins”, was based on interviews with Marty's twin sister, the late Mamie Robinson-Minotto. The idea for the title comes from one of the last songs Marty recorded before his death in 1982, “Some Memories Just Won’t Die.”
