Locker, times have certainly changed! This is what passes for a hair helmet, these days:




But.....still ain't tall enough to play handball against The Floyd's shoe rand.

Watched a David Gilmor show on TV the other night. I would pay to see him solo for sure. Good Stuff!

My first real immersion to Pink Floyd was in my first year of college, sitting with a room full of people watching The Wall. I hadn't listened to Pink Floyd at all before that.

That thing blew my mind. After it was over, I just sat there speechless. I didn't want to be in that room full of people in such a vulnerable state.

Over time, David Gilmour has come to be one of my top guitar-playing influences.

I love The Floyd.


Prog Rock will never die. It is the music aficionados's and the real musician's choice of music.

It's deep great sounding and very complex music that can only be played by the best musicians, and lyrics that are incredibly deep and spiritual to match the music. It takes you to another world.

Word.


Huge fan of YES, Rush, Pink Floyd, Genesis . . . is there a pattern there?

Jeff Bosson and I used to have a tradition of looking at climbing or mountaineering slides, only to the music of one group, Pink Floyd. After Jeff's untimely death, I have somehow hung on to some portion of what was among the best friendships I have ever enjoyed, by listening to Pink Floyd.
I guess that could also be labeled as some form of mental disorder...
easily admitted to.

Did toe, here... Although I may change the order a bit:
RUSH, Pink Floyd, RUSH, Yes, RUSH, Genesis, RUSH


Guess I'm a "poofter" too, but then again, I'm not even cool enough to know what that word means. :/

Riley, with Pink Floyd, it's very hard to know where to start...

All of Dark Side of the Moon-can't even distinguish what is best off that, it's all amazing-but maybe Us and Them, I really like the female vocalist in that.

Listening to "The Wall" was a cathartic experience that helped me get through my divorce... I kept listening to "One of my turns", "Don't leave me now", "another brick in the wall 3" and "goodbye cruel world", "Hey you" Helpful to listen to something that exactly matches your mood.

Love the Floyd! Brilliant musicians and lyricists.

I just remembered my *real* first experience with Pink Floyd, well before college. I didn't have any exposure to them after this incident until college.

I was probably in junior high, baby-sitting some smaller kids who were asleep. Perusing their parents' record collection, I was intrigued by the prism and rainbow. Put on Dark Side of Moon, and I lay on the couch alone and transfixed. I don't know how long I listened to the record skipping at the end, thinking it was part of some heartbeat trance.

Edit:
I didn't want to soil the Rush Appreciation thread, so adding this here. I must confess, Rush just doesn't solicit any emotional reaction from me. I've tried at different times over the years (including from links in their appreciation thread), but it just doesn't do anything for me!

Rush only works for me on rare occasions, same with King Crimson. But I'm almost always down for some Pink, if I'm not listening to metal or some form of technological music.

Obscured by Clouds is the only PF album that has never fallen out of my music rotation. I understand why Dark Side or The Wall got more airplay, but haven't figured out why this album got so little attention.

But each to their own...
