The History of Pink Floyd
Formed in 1965 in London, England, Pink Floyd became one of the most successful rock bands of their generation. They started off as a psychedelic rock band with singer Syd Barrett. But eventually, they transitioned to progressive rock with the addition of David Gilmour on vocals and Roger Waters taking over on songwriting. Their socio-political lyrics, concept albums and use of experimental techniques led to some of the most unique and powerful sounds in rock and roll. Memorable singles include "Echoes," "Money," "Have a Cigar," "Another Brick in the Wall," and "Not Now John". In this WatchMojo.com video, we take a look at the history of Pink Floyd.
