Abstract:

"Pink Floyd is one of the most creative, successful and enduring bands of all time. For the first time ever, here's the inside story of the band - told by the only member who has been there continuously from the beginning. A founder of Pink Floyd, Nick Mason has had an unequalled view of every twist, turn and sommersault of the band's forty years together from behind his drum kit." "The journey begins with the band's origins as the darlings of London's late 1960s underground and the creation of the seminal Pink Floyd sound all the way through to their legendary stadium shows. Here are the players who shaped the band's history and the stories behind the story. Among them are the deterioration and departure of Syd Barrett; the incredible success of The Dark Side of the Moon, with all the pressures and conflicts that it wrought within the band; the rift with Roger Waters; and Nick and David Gilmour's brave decision to put their reputations on the line and continue as Pink Floyd." "Overflowing with rare photographs and vintage Floyd graphics from Nick Mason's extensive private archive, Inside Out is an eye-opener for veteran fans as well as those just discovering the band. Plus, Nick has created an eclectic band chronology that highlights the events as they happened. Nick's memories are augmented with extensive research and interviews, making Inside Out a comprehensive history of one of the most brilliant and imaginative bands the world has known."--Jacket.
