Comfortably Numb: The Inside Story of Pink Floydby Mark Blake
Synopses & Reviews
Mark Blake draws on his own interviews with band members as well as the groupand#8217;s friends, road crew, musical contemporaries, former housemates, and university colleagues to produce a riveting history of one of the biggest rock bands of all time. We follow Pink Floyd from the early psychedelic nights at UFO, to the stadium-rock and concept-album zenith of the seventies, to the acrimonious schisms of the late and#8217;80s and and#8217;90s. Along the way there are fascinating new revelations about Syd Barrettand#8217;s chaotic life at the time of Piper at the Gates of Dawn, the bandand#8217;s painstaking and Byzantine recording sessions at Abbey Road, and the fractious negotiations to bring about their fragile, tantalizing reunion in Hyde Park.
Meticulous, exacting, and ambitious as any Pink Floyd album, Comfortably Numb is the definitive account of this most adventurousand#151;and most Englishand#151;rock band.
