Details of Pink Floyd and the Ticket Luck value
Pink Floyd -- not to be confused with America's favorite -- is an English rock band which primarily earned fame and recognition for their psychedelic rock music, and, as they evolved, for their progressive rock music. They are recognized for philosophical lyrics, sonic testing, ground-breaking cover art, and sophisticated live shows. Undoubtedly, Pink Floyd is considered one of rock music's most successful acts; the group has successfully sold off estimating around 74.5 million albums in the United States alone.
Although, Pink Floyd had modest mainstream success and were one of the most popular bands in the London underground music scene in the late 1960s as a psychedelic band led by Syd Barrett; on the other hand, Barrett's inconsistent behavior, sooner or later, forced his colleagues to restored him with guitarist and singer David Gilmour. After Barrett's exodus, singer and bass player Roger Waters slowly but surely became the leading and driving force in the mid-1970s, until his ultimate exodus from the group in 1985. The band recorded several albums, attaining international success with The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), and The Wall (1979). In 1985, Waters acknowledged Pink Floyd's redundancy, but the remaining members, led by Gilmour, sued Waters for naming rights; they continued with recording and touring as Pink Floyd enjoyed commercial success with A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987) and The Division Bell (1994), finally settled with a deal with Waters over the use of the name.
On July 2, 2005, Waters performed with the band for the first time in 24 years at the London Live 8 concert, playing to Pink Floyd's biggest audience ever.
Pink Floyd have influenced rock music artists of the 1970s such as David Bowie, Genesis and Yes; and various modern artists such as Dream Theater, Tool, Radiohead, Porcupine Tree, The Orb and Nine Inch Nails.
Pink Floyd developed out of an earlier rock band, which came into being in 1964, which was at various times called Sigma 6, the Meggadeaths, Tea Set and The Abdabs. When the band dismembered, some members including the guitarists Rado "Bob" Klose and Roger Waters, drummer Nick Mason, and wind instrument player Rick Wright ? formed a new band called "Tea Set". After working for short period with a lead vocalist named Chris Dennis, guitarist and vocalist Syd Barrett joined the band, with Waters moving to bass.
When Tea Set found themselves on the same bill as another band with the same name, Barrett came up with the substitute name The Pink Floyd Sound, after two blues musicians, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council. For a time after this they fluctuated between Tea Set and The Pink Floyd Sound, with the later name finally winning out. The Sound was dropped fairly quickly, but the definite article was still used regularly until 1968. The group's UK releases during the Syd Barrett era credited them as The Pink Floyd as did their first two U.S. singles. David Gilmour is recognized to have referred to the group as The Pink Floyd as late as 1984.
The heavily jazz-oriented Klose left after recording only a demo, leaving an or else unwavering lineup with Barrett on guitar and lead vocals, Waters on bass guitar and backing vocals, Mason on drums and percussion, and Wright switching to keyboards and backing vocals. Barrett shortly started writing his own songs, prejudiced by American and British psychedelic rock with his own brand of capricious humor. Pink Floyd became a favorite in the underground movement, playing at such famous venues as the UFO club, the Marquee Club and the Roundhouse.
At the end of 1966 the band were invited to give music for Peter Whitehead's film Tonite Let's All Make Love in London; they were filmed recording two tracks namely "Interstellar Overdrive" and "Nick's Boogie" in January 1967. Even though barely any of this music made it onto the film, the session was in due course released as London 1966/1967 in 2005.
As the band's fame advanced further, the stresses of life on the road and a noteworthy ingestion of psychedelic drugs took their toll on Barrett, whose mental health had been worsening for numerous months. Barrett's outlandish behavior has often been accredited to his drug use. In January 1968, guitarist David Gilmour joined the band to carry out Barrett's playing and singing duties, though manifestly Jeff Beck was considered.
This period was one of musical tests for the band. Gilmour, Waters and Wright each supplied material that had its own voice and sound, giving this material less reliability than the Barrett-dominated early years or the more refined, elegant and improved sound of later years. As Barrett had been the lead singer during his epoch, Gilmour, Waters and Wright -- now split -- both songwriting and lead vocal duties. Waters typically wrote low-key, jazzy melodies with principal bass lines and multifaceted, characteristic lyrics, Gilmour paid attention on guitar-driven blues jams, and Wright preferred melodic psychedelic keyboard-heavy numbers. Contrasting to Waters, Gilmour and Wright preferred tracks that had simple lyrics or that were merely instrumental. During this epoch, the band gave some of its most experimental music, such as "A Saucerful of Secrets", consisting principally of noises, feedback, percussions, oscillators and tape loops, and "Careful with That Axe, Eugene", a typical Waters-driven song with a bass and keyboard-heavy jam culminating in crashing drums and Waters' primeval screams.
During this time, Pink Floyd shed their relationship with the "psychedelic" scene and became an idiosyncratic band difficult to categorize. The contradictory genre of their primary songwriters, Gilmour, Waters and Wright, merged into a unique sound. This era contains what many deem to be two of the band's magnum opus albums, The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. The sound further improved and collaborative, with the philosophic lyrics and distinctive bass lines of Waters combining with the inimitable blues guitar style of Gilmour and Wright's recurring keyboard melodies and harmonic textures. Gilmour was the foremost vocalist all the way through this period, and female choirs and Dick Parry's saxophone offerings became a noteworthy part of the band's fashion. The sometimes less appealing and callous sound revealed in the band's earlier years gave way to a very soft, melodious and genteel sound, and the band's classic, lengthy compositions reached their pinnacle of success and fame with "Echoes". This period was not only the beginning but the end of their dominant collaborative era of the band; after 1973 Waters' influence became more overriding musically along with lyrically. Wright's last endorsed composition and last lead vocal on a studio album until 1994's The Division Bell were in this period ("Shine On You Crazy Diamond" and "Time" respectively), and Gilmour's writing credits penetratingly refused in occurrence in anticipation of Waters left the band in 1985, nevertheless he continued to perform lead vocals and write songs right through the whole time. The last knots with Barrett were disengaged in musical, in addition to literal, manner with Wish You Were Here, whose epic track "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" was written both as a tribute and acclamation to Barrett.
On May 10, 2007, Roger Waters performed at the Syd Barrett tribute concert at the Barbican Centre in London. This was then pursued by a ?bolt from the blue' performance by the post-Waters Pink Floyd line-up of David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason of "Arnold Layne" to an ecstatic round of applause and standing ovation. On the other hand, hopes of a second reunion concert with the band's classic array were tore apart when Waters did not perform with the group. Roger Waters went up to the stage to screams of "Pink Floyd!" to which he answered, "Later." Gilmour, Mason, and Wright took to the stage to screams of "Roger Waters!" to which Gilmour politely responded, "Yeah, he was here too, now the rest of us."
Lately, Waters has become more and more open to a Pink Floyd reunion. In a 2007 interview, he exclaimed, "I would have no problem if the rest of them wanted to get together. It wouldn't even have to be to save the world. It could be just because it would be fun. And people would love it."
On September 24th, 2007, Gilmour affirmed that an upcoming reunion of Pink Floyd in any form, whether with or without Roger Waters, grimly stated that "I can't see why I would want to be going back to that old thing. It's very retrogressive. I want to look forward, and looking back isn't my joy."
