You Think You Know Pink Floyd?

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day? We’re here to help with some lesser-known facts about everybody’s favorite space-rock band — Pink Floyd.

Of course, when an album like ‘The Dark Side of the Moon‘ stays on the charts for a million years — yep, we checked that figure — it’s easy to assume you know everything there is to know about Floyd. But there’s always been more to this group than that one bestselling moment, as you’ll no doubt learn from our ‘You Think You Know Pink Floyd?’ video, which you can watch above.

For instance, there’s the story of Pink Floyd’s first guitarist. No, it wasn’t David Gilmour. And it wasn’t Syd Barrett, either. In fact, it could have been Roger Waters. But that’s not the way it worked out.

We also share more about Pink Floyd’s unique approach in the studio — some of which is revealed to be as serious as you might expect, while some of it is absolutely hilarious. There’s the famous rocker’s pet who made an appearance on one song, and the guest singer who was instructed to “think about death” on another. Also, a backward-masked message that was anything but evil.

In fact, this video is loaded with items to help you fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way. Enjoy!
