Inside Out : A Personal History of Pink Floyd - New Edition Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The definitive history of Pink Floyd, one of the world's great bands, by founder member Nick Mason. One of the most fascinating rock bands ever, Pink Floyd was formed in 1965.

After a year in the London 'underground' experimenting with revolutionary techniques such as lights that matched their music, they released their first single in 1966.

Their breakthrough album, The Dark Side of the Moon, was released in 1973 and stayed in the charts until 1982, the longest a record has ever been continuously in the charts, becoming one of the best-selling albums of all time. In 1975 they released Wish You Were Here, which reached iconic status, then in 1979 The Wall went to number 1 in almost every country in the world.

The movie version of The Wall starring Bob Geldof was released in 1982, becoming a cult favorite.

In the 1980s a rift developed between the band members which culminated in law suits.

Only recently have there been reconciliations which have allowed founder member Nick Mason to write his personal take on the band's history.
