Pink Floyd

Legendary, ground-breaking, and incredibly multi-faceted

Until today, Pink Floyd is the most successful band ever. You can only guess the number of sold albums by the British Rock band. It all began in 1965 - some students started an outfit named Pink Floyd and set off for a musical journey that was a class of its own. In their 30 active years, the band evolved from delivering psychedelic sounds to revolutionising progressive Rock. Apart from using elements of Blues, Jazz, and also classical music, Pink Floyd mainly have become famous for using new technology. Pink Floyd experimented with various rhythms and sounds, and wowed their audiences with massive stage shows. The best example of that may very well be the stage production of "The Wall" alongside the Berlin wall in Germany 1990. There was nothing Pink Floyd couldn't realise when it came to technical details, so, visual effects and a previously never seen before light show always played an important role when performing their music. "Atom Heart Mother", "Meddle", "Obscured by Clouds", "The Dark Side Of The Moon", "Wish You Were Here", "Animals", "The Final Cut", and their last studio album "The Endless River" are just an excerpt from the success story of Pink Floyd.

Fortunately, legends never die

Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, Richard Wright, and David Gilmour have turned Pink Floyd into the legendary cult band of our time. Songs such as "Comfortably Numb", "Wish You Were Here", "Time", "Shine On Your Crazy Diamond", "Another Brick In The Wall", or "Brain Damage" simply are true classics that will never die - fortunately!
