Pink Floyd is a British rock band who created a creepy, psychedelic style known as "space rock". Their album The Wall was made into a film. Several of their albums, including The Wall, were designed to have each track segue into the next. They were named after blues musicians Pink Anderson and Floyd Council. Began as a band similar to The Beatles before slowly finding their style, first as an acid rock band but later adopting the creepy style which made them phenomenal. The eighties saw them adopt a more spacey style. Each era featured a different lead vocalist: Syd Barrett during the acid rock era, David Gilmour during the psychedelic rock era, and Roger Waters during the space rock era. Album Dark Side of the Moon depicts a prism. The album Wish You Were Here has a picture of Mono Lake, California. The lake features odd rock formations known as tufa. Shine On You Crazy Diamond is divided into nine parts which combine into 26 minutes worth of music.
XM Radio is currently commemorating Gilmour's seventieth birthday.
