Description

This is an authentic and compelling story of the group that gave alternative London its first real soundtrack and launched on the rock world a radical combination of music, light shows and pyrotechnic stage effects, a revealing diary of Pink Floyd's daily routine, from their roots in Cambridge to cult status in Sixties London. Author Barry Miles saw the band play when they were still called "The Pink Floyd Sound" an he wrote the first ever article about them for a New York underground newspaper in 1966. He also knew the band members socially, witnessed the rapid decline of Syd Barrett and became actively involved in setting up some of Floyd's major gigs.
