Directed by Chris Rodley. With Syd Barrett, Joe Boyd, Bob Geldof, David Gilmour. Traces the band’s history from psychedelic 60s London to a reunion show at Live 8 in 2005, this is the story of a succession of musical and commercial peaks separated by a succession of struggles around the creative leadership of the band.
This documentary breaks down the story of Pink Floyd. I remember ransacking my step-father’s cassettes when I was growing up. He had Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall and Atom Heart Mother. I think that this opened me up to a different appreciation of music. I also had a friend who was slightly obsessed with their music and had learnt each song on guitar inside out. I never got to that level.
