Have a cigar, you’re gonna go far… This is Pink Floyd’s London.
Pigs WILL fly as we hit Regent Street Polytechnic, Battersea, Tottenham Court Road, Covent Garden in search of the band’s genesis and 1970s pomp.
In search of the London locations of one of the world’s biggest bands.
One of the world’s biggest bands – their 1973 opus Dark Side Of The Moon has sold in excess of 45 million copies worldwide.
On this virtual tour we will discover the origins of one of history’s biggest bands – Pink Floyd. It’s a virtual tour for fans AND newbies. Architecture students Roger Waters, Nick Mason & Richard Wright met at Regent Street Polytechnic in 1963 and were joined in ’64 by charismatic painter & songwriter Syd Barrett. David Gilmour (an old Cambridge friend of both Barrett & Waters) replaced Syd –we’ll deal with the whys and wherefores of Syd’s leaving the band – and, with Waters as principal writer, they went on to sell millions of records over a period of 15 years of groundbreaking rock music followed by 20+ years of very public artistic differences.
Five decades on, Floyd records still sell, new Sydologists join the cult every year and the debate rages on: Waters or Gilmour: which side are you on?
