Overview

A definitive review of the music and career of Pink Floyd on stage, record, and film, featuring the reflections of the band themselves, as well as the thoughts of their critics then and now

Four remarkable DVDs explain the controversial twists and turns of the Floyd story through a unique series of interviews featuring Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and the late Richard Wright. The recollections of the band are compared and contrasted with the views of the insiders who worked with Pink Floyd in the studio and on the road. The war between the late Norman Smith and Syd Barrett is also laid bare and original producer Joe Boyd recalls his frustrations over losing the band to EMI. Ron Geesin gives a blunt appraisal of the making of Atom Heart Mother and EMI Studio engineer Peter Mew remembers the Ummagumma debacle. Vocalist Clare Torry reveals the truth behind The Great Gig In the Sky, while Snowy White and Andy Roberts from Floyd's "surrogate band" recall the surreal backstage environment during the tour for The Wall as the poisonous rift between Waters and Wright reached its zenith. Rare photographs and artifacts spanning the entire career of Pink Floyd are also included.
