Pink Floyd

Author: siggy

I saw Pink Floyd a year or two (before they released “Dark Side Of The Moon”) at the Philmore East in NYC on a Sunday afternoon and the theater was barely a third full. It might have been with the original guitarist Syd Barrett. I remember hearing stories that I never verified that they had a full time psychiatrist accompany them on their tours. They truly was a progressive sounding group at that point with long jams characterizing their music.

In fact, the best song they ever wrote was “Wish You Here” on the same titled album (released right after The Dark Side of The Moon) was about the disintegration of Syd Barret, who they loved and had to fire from the band. He went off the deep end. He died not that long ago.
