Abstract:

Few groups have achieved the success experienced by Pink Floyd; most groups would give almost anything to do so. But, things were not just given to Pink Floyd; they had to work for success. "Pink Floyd" tells the story of the band that began its career at the Tea Set. With Syd Barrett on lead vocals, the group found a unique sound - psychedelic rock. As readers of Pink Floyd will learn, the group became the favorite of first the British counterculture and then those in the United States who lived on the fringe of mainstream thought and action. Readers will also learn how Syd's death and egos worked together to sabotage the creators of "The Wall". They'll also learn what it is about the group that makes its fans hope again and again for a real reunion.
