9780811848244: Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd

The definitive history of one of the world's great bands by a founder member.

The paperback will have a brand new chapter on the band's historic decision to re-form after so many years in order to play at the LIVE8 concert, including Sir Bob's intervention! Plus new, never before seen, photos of the band both onstage and backstage at the concert.

One of the most fascinating rock bands ever, Pink Floyd was formed in 1965. After a year in the London 'underground' experimenting with revolutionary techniques like lights which matched their music, they released their first single in 1966. Their breakthrough album, THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, was released in 1973 and stayed in the charts until 1982, the longest a record has ever been continuously in the charts, becoming one of the best-selling albums of all time.

In 1975 they released WISH YOU WERE HERE which reached iconic status, then in 1979 THE WALL went to number 1 in almost every country in the world. The movie version of THE WALL starring Bob Geldof was released in 1982, becoming a cult favorite. In the 1980s a rift developed between the band members which culminated in law suits. Only recently have there been reconciliations which have allowed founder member Nick Mason to write his personal take on the band's history.

Book Description Chronicle Books, San Francisco, 2005. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: New. 4th Printing. 360 page oversize quality trade paperback with flaps (like a dust jacket), includes a lot of pictures (most captioned, most color) and a Chronology at the back of the book. "After years of being asked 'How did Pink Floyd get its name?', 'Where's Syd?' and 'Can I have a free T-shirt?', this book was my attempt to come up with some answers. I ended up opening a Pandora's box of memories. I decided to avoid a rundown of every gig, track or moustache style and to take a chance on the contortions of my own personal recollections. Of course, everyone has divergent views of what actually happened. I've tried to be honest about disasters and triumphs, and not to take all the credit - though I've been delighted to share out any blame. Above all, INSIDE OUT is about being a part of this entity known as Pink Floyd, and about the shared experiences that stretch across four decades, the whole of my adult life." New, unread copy: spine square/no creasing, covers have a TINY bit of rubbing and faint marking else the book is perfect (pages white) with NO markings throughout. NOT an ex-library, NOT a book club, NOT a remainder. New. Bookseller Inventory # 011923
