Pink Floyd

Active since:

Pink Floyd formed in 1964 from earlier bands whose names included Sigma 6, T-Set, Megadeaths, The Screaming Abdabs, The Architectural Abdabs, and The Abdabs. The band was again renamed The Pink Floyd Sound and then simply The Pink Floyd (after two blues musicians, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council). The definite article was dropped by the time their debut album was released. Pink Floyd originally consisted of Bob Klose (lead guitar), Syd Barrett (vocals, rhythm guitar), Richard Wright (keyboards, vocals), Roger Waters (bass, vocals) and Nick Mason (drums). They covered rhythm and blues staples such as 'Louie, Louie'

Roger Clark Miller: Eight Dream Interpretations for Solo Electric Guitar Ensemble

Read "Eight Dream Interpretations for Solo Electric Guitar Ensemble" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Roger Clark Miller (who has simply been “Roger Miler" on many prior recordings) has a hell of a resume. He is best known for his guitar-playing in the experimental rock band Mission of Burma, which he co-founded in 1979.

Read "A Different Drummer, Pt. 6: Iberian Beats – Jorge Rossy & Pedro Melo Alves" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Who Do You Think We Are?

Read "Who Do You Think We Are?" reviewed by John Kelman

Trying to find a distinct definition of what has come to be known as “The Canterbury Sound" is as elusive as attempting to describe what, in the jazz world, has become an overused epithet for the German ECM Records label and “The ECM Sound." Attempts to do so usually fail short because, rather than being actual ...
