After years of bitter recrimination and mudslinging in the press, Pink Floyd buried the hatchet 26 years ago this weekend, celebrating peace on Earth and goodwill to men by legally finalizing one of the most strongly contested breakups in rock 'n' roll history.
Roger Waters has admitted that he shouldn't have sued his former Pink Floyd bandmates after he left the group in 1985. In an interview scheduled to air on Sept. 19 on BBC World News, Waters said, "I did think that was wrong, and I was wrong."
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.
A new radio play inspired by Pink Floyd's landmark 1973 album 'The Dark Side of the Moon' will air on BBC2 on Monday (Aug. 26) at 10PM GMT. An animated three-minute teaser clip from the production, created by Aardman Studios is embedded above.
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
In July 1988, 736 weeks after it debuted on Billboard's album chart, Pink Floyd's 1973 classic 'The Dark Side of the Moon' finally left the weekly Top 200 listing. Twenty-five years after that chart record was set, it still hasn't been broken.
