As 1973 drew to a close, Pink Floyd abandoned their plans for a highly experimental follow-up to 'The Dark Side of the Moon,' their smash hit album from earlier in that year. The new project was to be called 'Household Objects,' and true to that title, the group's plans were to record it without any musical instruments.
It was a time of transition for Pink Floyd, who returned after their supposed demise on Sept. 8, 1987 (in the U.S., one day earlier in the U.K.) minus one key member but with a new album titled 'A Momentary Lapse of Reason.' The disc would be a key one for the band as it would make or break their future ability to tour and record without bassist Roger Waters.
Korn have seen better days. The exit of drummer David Silveria in 2006 (one of the hardest, finest skins-beaters of the nu-metal era) and a few ill-timed lineup changes have resulted in some below-average music compared to their first few albums. Coupled with a general apathy for anything that has to do with the genre, it's led to a steep decline in interest in the group by the general public. Don’t get us wrong, loyal Korn fans still exist; you just don't see too many mainstream ones these days.
Pink Floyd's Richard Wright, more often than not, was the guy keeping to himself while outsized personalities like Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and David Gilmour drew all of the attention. Still, he made a number of important contributions to the band's space-rock legend over the years
