Wow that's great, is it in good condition still? Pompeii is a wonder to behold.

Have a mint copy of Live at Pompeii on ancient video disc, its my most prized possession.

Yeah that's true, it does depend what you fancy at the time.

I like The Final Cut. And Relics. And Meddle (of course!), but I really can't pick out a favourite. Maybe The Wall? They're all so different- it depends what you're in the mood for at the time.

Of course senua, i totally agree, that's probably the reason i'm always running late when i'm getting ready to go out! Yeah marge2, he's probably sick of hearing about it i imagine, at least it's not an urban myth anymore.

marge2 Wed 12-Sep-12 14:20:31

Well he never mentions them really. I guess he would be quizzed all the time by middle aged pf fans if he went on about it all the time.

I'm going to see if DH has any pf cd now. He may do. He's the right age!! I guess he never believed the talk either.

senua Wed 12-Sep-12 14:14:15

Sorry beujolais, I have to disagree with you.
Marge: PF are the king of the concept album. You can't 'dip in' to one track, you need to immerse yourself in a whole album (any album, see above).

beujolais Wed 12-Sep-12 14:08:41

Oh i'd be sick if i left that band, to not be part of what they made, that would be shit!

beujolais Wed 12-Sep-12 14:07:17

Haha i still don't have one of those! It's a work of fine art, absolute genius. Did anyone see that docu a while back on the making of wish you were here? It was very revealing.

senua Wed 12-Sep-12 14:05:45

OMG. You had a member of Pink Floyd as 'background music' !? shock

I wonder if he regrets leaving the band. Their music is fantastic but as individuals they do appear a bit, um, hard work.

beujolais Wed 12-Sep-12 14:05:09

Haha excellent, your folks have good taste! My son was concieved to kraftwerk, maybe that's why i can't get him into them!

marge2 Wed 12-Sep-12 14:04:40

Shine on part 2 - it is! iPod on Christmas wish list!

marge2 Wed 12-Sep-12 14:03:24

Nothing really. Listen to 5 Live and I don't have an iPod. blush

what's a good into to pf??

beujolais Wed 12-Sep-12 14:01:44

Got to be shine on part2 marge2. Let it wash over you!

Apparently I was conceived whilst my parents were listening to Echoes. grin

beujolais Wed 12-Sep-12 13:57:23

Got to be wish you were here, listen to shine on part2, my fave.

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

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

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?

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!

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 13:38:30

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

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!

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

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

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!
