Description

This stunning look back at Pink Floyd’s discography comprises a series of in-depth, frank, and entertaining conversations about all of the band's studio albums, including their soundtrack efforts and the instrumental/ambient The Endless River. Inside, prolific rock journalist Martin Popoff moderates discussions on each album with rock journalists and musicians who offer insights, opinions, and anecdotes about every release.

Together, the conversations comprise a unique historical overview of the band, covering everything from early albums with the iconic Syd Barrett to the songwriting tandem of Roger Waters and David Gilmour; the impeccable talents of drummer Nick Mason and multi-instrumentalist Richard Wright; those mega tours undertaken in support of the LPs; the monster success of breakthrough LP Dark Side of the Moon; interpersonal conflict; the band following Waters’ 1985 departure; and much more.

Popoff also includes sidebars that provide complete track listings, album personnel, and studios and dates. Every page is illustrated with thoughtfully curated performance and offstage photography, as well as rare memorabilia.

He has also worked on film documentaries about Rush and ZZ Top. Popoff lives in Toronto.
