    I was beginning to think I was the only one that appreciated Joe.

    I think most people go "who is Joe Crocker" and then you play his music and they are like "I love that song(s)."

    I know who pink Floyd is band members are: Nick Mason,*Roger Waters, Richard Wright and Syd Barrett....not to be confused with sid viscous from the sex pistols.

    Pf's best album in my opinion was dark side of the moon. Didn't have to even look that up had a pot head brother.

    Syd was the one whom started the band, but by the time they did their first album, he was already getting too screwed up with dope and they kinda kicked him out. David Gilmour took Syd's place in 1967. Syd became a recluse and wouldn't even acknowledge that he was ever in the band. Syd passed on in July, 2006.

    I have lots of video and interviews on one of my harddrives.

    Dark Side of the Moon is a timeless classic, but my favorite album is Division Bell.

    Rick Wright passed away in Sept 2008. :(

    Gilmour is my most favorite guitar player. :cool:

    Unfortunately, *Waters has become a very vocal anti-semite and is very anti-Israel. When musicians can do great works, they should keep their political views to themselves. :mad:

    I saw Joe Cocker at Woodstock 25th anniversary in 1994, great show! I sing "You are so Beautiful" to my wife at least 2-3 times month. That is how I have remained married for 37 years!!!
    Now, Pink Floyd Animals Tour in 1977 was the 2nd or 3rd date my wife & I went on. I have seen them 3 times, & David Gilmour solo once.
    MEMORIES, I can barely remember???

    So where did you copy that extremely outdated info from? (leaving in the asterisks is a dead give away) David Gilmour joined the band in the mid 60's. Syd left around 68 - 69 because he went completely insane. Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and parts of Meddle are about Syd and his downhill spiral. There are still Syd's influences in Meddle (first album after he left) but starting with Dark Side on it's all Waters & Gilmour with a completely different sound from their early stuff. They broke up in the early 80's (actually Waters kicked out Wright at the end of the Wall tour and kicked out Mason after they recorded The Final Cut. After that Gimour told Waters to go F himself). Waters went on to a successful solo career. Gilmour released a solo album that did so so (Murder is a great song off that release). Shortly afterwards Gilmour talked Mason & Wright into reforming the band and releasing a few decent albums. BTW Richard Wright and Syd Barrett have both passed away.

    And that's off the top of my head so if dates are wrong "Well Excuuusssee Me!"..

    David actually joined a few years before Syd left. They claim it was never their intention for him to replace Syd.

    Well He's good enough that when Roger Waters recorded Pro's and Con's of Hitchhiking he had to get Eric Clapton to replace him.

    Roger Waters & I share the same birthday, but that is our only connection?
    I can't even sing bass, let alone play it!

    I have seen EC 4 times, he lives out of his suitcase, but his family lives about 15-16 miles from me?
    Here is a very cool site, IF you like Eric Clapner?

    My best week at college. Saturday I saw Roger Waters (Radio KAOS) and following Friday saw Pink Floyd (Momentary Lapse of Reason).

    If ya wanna brag?

    Rush = 6 times
    Aerosmith = 4 times
    ACDC = 3 times

    All the rest once each. It would take awhile to list them all.

    IMO ACDC puts on the best show. I could watch Angus Young for hours.

    Syd didn't 'voluntarily' leave. They stopped picking him up for rehearsals and gigs because he was too strung out and unpredictable.

    I also have the video interview (somewhere on my hdd) where they talked about when they were recording Crazy Diamond in the studio and Syd wandered into the studio. Nobody realized who it was and I think it was David that finally recognized him. I don't believe that anyone went to speak to him tho.
