Initial speculation surrounding Pink Floyd's 'The Endless River' suggested that it was based on a mix of early-'90s ambient tracks called 'The Big Spliff,' constructed by the band's longtime engineer Andy Jackson.
Pink Floyd continued on for years after Roger Waters quit the band in 1985, still enjoy platinum sales and sold-out tours even without the creative input of the band's longtime guiding hand.
Pink Floyd's drummer explains why the band chose to put a secret message in a song on 'The Wall.'
Nick Mason, the man behind the drum kit for Pink Floyd, has stepped in to save a favorite childhood haunt from closing its doors. Foote's is the music shop where Mason bought his very first drum kit, and now he, along with the store's sales director, Rob Wilson, are set to buy the business from the family who has owned it since the '30s.
Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason says he and his bandmates were 'bastards' to each other at times, but adds that the tough-love approach was a big reason behind the group's success.
