One of the most successful groups in popular music, they began playing R&B in the early to mid-1960s. The name of the band (and members) changed several times, but eventually settled on “The Pink Floyd Sound,” taken from the names of two blues musicians, Pinkney “Pink” Anderson and Floyd “Dipper Boy” Council (click each name for links to recordings on the Utoobage). Dick Clark introduced “The Pink Floyd” on American Bandstand in 1967, their first appearance in the U.S. Here’s the lineup (with ages) at the time of the filming:

Roger Waters – bass, vocals, songwriter (24)
Syd Barrett – guitar, vocals, songwriter (21)
Richard Wright – keyboards, vocals (24)
Nick Mason – percussion (23)

Pink Floyd had my attention from “Ummagumma” through “Wish You Were Here,” but they began to lose me when their style began drifting too far into the mainstream pop radio culture of the late 70s: the overbearing and over-produced arena-art-rock years.

Remember that “Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict” was performed live on stage,with “lyrics” in English, just like The Overnight Open Thread.

P.S. The Dub Side Of The Moon is awesome.

RIP Johnny Winter (1944-2014)

Johnny Winter 1944-2014

Johnny Winter, legendary guitarist and one of the most recognizable icons of Texas blues and rock passed away at the age of 70 earlier this week after a long career.

In a documentary released this year entitled “Johnny Winter Down and Dirty,” he laughed, “Made my first record when I was 15, started playing clubs when I was 15. Started drinking and smoking when I was 15. Sex when I was 15. Fifteen was a big year for me.”

According to Wiki, at age 10 he and his 8 year old brother Edgar played on local TV in his hometown of Beaumont Texas. Johnny Winter performed for an astounding 60 years, and he died while on still on tour.
