    Saw them for the thrid time last night in Atlanta at the FOX Theater. Incredible! If you are a Pink Floyd Fan, check out the web for Austrailian Pink Floyd. Had all the visuals and even in 3 D.

    Saw them 3 times during 1970's and early '80's.

    "Oh by the way......(blade),....which one's Pink?"

    Incredible band from the past along with The Moody Blues!

    For long you live and high you fly, but only if you ride the tide

    and balanced on the biggest wave, you race toward an early grave.

    Waters/Gilmour

    The first of their shows I saw was done in Quadraphonic surround sound.

    I just saw the Moody Blues at the end of their tour last month. Last time I saw them was 28 years ago, and they are still great. Three old originals (the drummer just turned 70- he says he did the 60s TWICE!)and they are just as good now as back when I was a kid.

    Shooting Sailor,

    Was the Mellotron still part of their music? Don't doubt that these days there are other instruments to duplicate that sound.

    It's a tribute band. Just saw Waters and Gilmour at the 02 center. I guess if Black Sabbath can get back together so should Pink Floyd.

    I think I saw Pink Floyd in Denver in 1980. Must have been a good show - don't really remember it.

    I saw Roger Waters in 1989, I think, at the Fox Theatre in St louis- Awsome show- place 1/2 empty. got within 20 feet of the stage. He played the entire Radio Kaos album plus a ton of Pink Floyd. Still one of the best concerts I ever attended.

    Wow, there are more trapshooters on here than I would have thought who appreciate great British bands like Pink Floyd and the Moody Blues. 2 of my all-time favorites. I have been lucky enough to see both bands twice, and the Moody Blues shows with the Houston Symphony Orchestra and the Austin Symphony Orchestra were amazing performances. Saw Pink Floyd in 1989 in the old Houston Astrodome and then again the SA Alamodome. Can't get enough of either of those 2 bands. Thanks for the memories. Mike* (MH*)

    Ok. EVERTYONE. Title of post is "Austrailian Pink Floyd". They are more than a tribute band. They travel with the same Pink Floyd show, blow up pig and all. They are so good that david Gilmore hired them for his 50th BD. Get Floyd back togetehr? Doubt it since Richard WQright died two years ago. He was the only one without an ego. Waters hates Gilmore and vice versa. I suggest everyone go to Aussie Pink Floyd's web site and check them out.

    The lyrical content of the average British band is far far superior to their American counterparts. This had a lot to do with lack of job oportunities for the post war offspring that followed. You simply can't touch lyrics and composures from bands like Pink Floyd, The Who, The Kinks, The Beatles, The Moody Blues....etc, etc.

    I've always been a huge Brit band fan.

    I agree with you. British Bands often write "Cerebral" lyrics. 75 percent of the lyrics are rather gloomy due to the post war climate that you described. American bands typically write lyrics that are more happy with PARTY! as their themes. Based on my limited musical and song writing experience, it is far easier to write happy no subject songs than write about life's experiences. Still, Pink Floyd IMO is probably the most "cerebral" band that ever was. Clash was similiar but more modern day. Queen was more musically arrangement oriented. The Beatles are number one in musical arrangement and lyrics as far as I'm concerned espeially their middle career songs.

    As far as clever lyrics go, in my opinion the Kinks are by far the very best....but not a band for everyone. Their music has a creeper effect and takes a while to grow on you. I think Floyd's best work is from the Animals album with its incredible use of metaphors (animals to people)....it's really very sharply written and pointed. With the Clash (the only band that matters) there isn't a lot of matterial, but London Calling is great from start to finish.
