Bit of a clue with my name grin

Yup, Die Hard and Pink Floyd, all good.

Haha, excellent astronomydomine! Na trust me and don't worry nellyjob, your boy could be into worse ie one direction, justin bieber etc. I've been trying to brainwash mine but to no avail, suppose i'll just weather the storm and hope he gets into the good stuff later on.

Nope.

They are the most awsome band ever.

Yup, bestest band ever.

Was gutted i missed them at live8 that time, was in london just before it too but couldn't get back for it. Dave gilmour's guitar on comfortably numb gave me goose bumps. What are your faves, syd barratt floyd or gilmour floyd?

senua Wed 12-Sep-12 10:06:23

Concerts on the screen are not the same as being there. There is only one TV concert ever that gave me goose bumps. Guess which one?grin I know someone who had tickets for it and left early to get the last train home.<weeps> I would have quite happily slept in the gutter for the chance to be there.

Meanwhile, enjoy this. I prefer this to the official version because it gives the full view with starring role to the wall. [[ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2s6P2pkXpG0]]

So sorry, my computer's being an arse and not letting me get it on! Thanks though senua. What is your favourite album by them?

senua Wed 12-Sep-12 11:12:48

Um, all of them?
If forced to choose, I would say post-Barrett albums (am I allowed to say that?blush)

beujolais Wed 12-Sep-12 11:28:35

Ha. My most played is wish you were here i'd say. I love a saucer full of secrets when i fancy a bit more psychadelic floyd though. Yeah i suppose the barratt years are an aquired taste, i do love em personally.

Inspired by this thread, I am playing some PF. The nearest album to hand was Echoes which starts with Astronomie Domine and See Emily Play. I always forget how much I like the early stuff; it's just that later works have more emotional resonance to me.
We are currently on the track Echoes which is amazing. As they say - it's not the notes, it's the space between the notes. PF are past masters at 'spaces'. It something that the current generation (Jessie J et al) don't get.

NellyJob Wed 12-Sep-12 12:33:30

right that's it I am putting on 'wish you were here'

Pantah630 Wed 12-Sep-12 12:50:17

Love Floyd, as we can no longer see the real thing The Australian Pink Floyd are well worth going to see. Prefer Floyd with Roger in, Gilmours guitar is fabulous and Syd was a genius.
Unfortunately only seen them live without Roger but have seen him separately, such a shame Rick and Syd are gone.
Wish I'd brought headphones into work now. grin

Yes me, I'm rather proud that my 11 year old dd has lots of floyd on her mp3 player

beujolais Wed 12-Sep-12 13:10:25

You guys have excellent taste. See emily play is awesome, you can feel it through your body if you have it on high enough! I never tire of wish you were here, shine on part 2 is a masterpiece! I probably play have a cigar the most! you are awesome all of you!

beujolais Wed 12-Sep-12 13:17:00

How incredible is live at pompeii! What force of nature that is!

senua Wed 12-Sep-12 13:34:11

Ah, happy memories of <gulp> nearly forty years ago sitting in a darkened room reverently listening to Dark Side of the Moon in quadrophonic sound.
Truly awesome dude!

marge2 Wed 12-Sep-12 13:38:30

A neighbour of mine is an ex band member. As in 'before they were famous'. He is a bloody amazing guitarist. Lovely bloke too.

beujolais Wed 12-Sep-12 13:46:03

Got shine on part 2 on full throttle at the mo, my own little utopia. Wow senua that sounds almost heavenly! Really marge2, that's great. does he still play?

marge2 Wed 12-Sep-12 13:50:46

OMFG. I just googled him and it's true. I have known him for donkeys years and it's been sort of like a local folklore 'Oh yeah - Bob. He used to be in Pink Floyd'. I didn't actually believe it tbh..or thought he would be one of the kids at school in one of their first ever crap bands or something. Holy shit! He's been encouraging my DS2 in his guitar interest this summer. OMG - again!

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Klose

Perhaps I'd better listen to some pink floyd now!

marge2 Wed 12-Sep-12 13:53:46

Yes - he's amazing still too. His son is a drummer and he plays with his band sometimes. I'm sure he plays elsewhere too. In fact he brought some mates and played at a relative of mine's 70th in the summer. Just as background music, as he is a friend of loads of my family.

What should I listen to?

beujolais Wed 12-Sep-12 13:56:15

Haha, no way! That's awesome. Wish i knew him. What are you listening to?
