Pink Floyd Band Biography and How They Achieved Massive Worldwide Success
Pink Floyd is an English Band that is one of the most influential rock and roll bands of all time. They have sold more than 200 million albums and were inducted in the rock and roll hall of fame in 1996.
The Pink Floyd Band Biography was founded in 1965 by a group of University students (Roger Waters, Nick Mason, Richard Wright, and
Syd Barrett). They were music icons early on in London’s underground rock music scene and in the late 1960′s they released their first two big hit singles (Arnold Layne and See Emily Play” which both topped the charts.
David Gilmour joined Pink Floyd in 1968 as a guitarist and vocalist, and shortly after Syd Barrett had to leave the band based on his deteriorating mental health. This was potentially a huge downfall for the band, but Roger Waters stepped up into the leadership role and began writing lyrics for the Pink Floyd Band and began conceptualizing their songs with David Gilmour taking over on lead vocals.
It was with this new lineup and leadership that Pink Floyd achieved massive worldwide success through the release of the albums (The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall).
