How Old Musicians Were When They Made Their Classic Album
Pink Floyd spent half a decade figuring out what to do without their original frontman Syd Barrett before they created Dark Side of the Moon, one of the biggest-selling albums in the history of music when they were in their late 20s.
May 23 - On this day in 1982, the film Pink Floyd - The Wall was shown out of competition at the Cannes film festival. Some of Pink Floyd’s sound equipment had been brought from their Britannia Row studios into the Palais theater to play the film at concert volume. The Palais was old and run down (Pink Floyd - The Wall was one of the last films to be shown there) and the sound was so loud it caused paint to peel off the walls.
