Just saw this on the NY Times page:

Syd Barrett, Co-Founder of Pink Floyd, Dies at 60

Apparently he left the band after the first few years due to mental health/drug issues, and the album "Wish You Were Here" was written in his honor.

Hey thanks for that wav file Sir Lurksalot! What a blast from the past. I was very young, but I remember seeing parts of that Rm222 show. So I was wondering if I'd remember the theme song when I heard it. Oh yeah...even after what, 30 years? Where did you find that? BTW, that is a heckuva good theme song, like so many shows used to have (in the 70's mostly). Even the cheesey show Barnaby Jones had a pretty catchy theme song (which I can hardly EVER remember). Sanford and Son...I could go on and on. Wait, what forum is this again?

for me it has to be comfortably numb It was the 1st floyd tune I heard. I have just got the anthology album sheet music and I am working my way through it. Its not too hard to play but some of the fingering can be interesting.

great gig in the sky learning to fly and fletcher memorial home are upo there with cn though.

floyd has to be the greatest band of all time


Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, leggy blonde in one hand, whisky in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!

'Echoes' from the Meddle album - seminal 1/2 hour progrock song that actually predates Yes' 'Close to the Edge' (the gold standard for 1/2 hour progrock epics IMHO). Shine on......

Bike! See Emily Play.

Went sailing alone the other day and put on my i-pod. I played Piper at the Gates of Dawn. The fog was rolling in and the islands seemed to be floating. I swear I was having flash backs laugh
The old Floyd was always my favorite. Dark Side of the Moon was the last album I bought and had them all up to then. The gaint walls and flying pigs just didn't do it for me.

I still have all of my old Emerson Lake and Palmer albums. Keith Emerson was always a hero. He had some serious hand problems many years back and I'm not sure he plays any more. I still remember seeing him in concert standing behind that wall of moogs and wires.

I just saw a recent performance of PF's. A "Dark Side of the Moon" concert. Great stuff. I was always a big Yes fan (not so much for Wakeman though, who I felt was musically sub-par to Howe and Squire), and a fan of ELP. If you're a keyboardist, how can you NOT love Emerson.

A very underrated rock keyboardist was Goldy McJohn of Steppenwolf. The writers would always describe his playing as a "choppy, Kangaroo-like style", in other words.... FUNK! He was way ahead of his time, playing a propulsive, funky style in rock, almost a full 10 years nefore the heyday of Tower of Power, Brothers Johnson, Parliament, etc. instead of what I call the usual "drone" rock organ, washing out the propulsion of the rhythm section as standard practice of 60's rock bands.

Not much is said about this super-group with incredible writing chops but Gentle Giant was as good a group of virtuosic musicians as any whoever played rock, jazz-rock, or classical rock. If you like tightly woven, polymetrically syncopated counterpoint with Stravinskian vocal harmonies this superband is for you:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...ref=pd_bbs_7/104-0066733-8471136?ie=UTF8

If you like ELP and Yes, you'll LOVE Gentle Giant!

That's funny you mention Gentle Giant...you took the words right out of my mouth. They were all classically trained and awesome in concert!

"Us and Them"
The beautiful piano solo in the middle of it always reminds me of the piano stuff in "A Charlie Brown Christmas."

"The Great Gig in the Sky"
Beautiful Piano!

I think in "Comfortably Numb," Gilmour actually played more than one guitar solo, and then spliced together the parts he liked!

Big prog fan here!

1967-1977 Genesis is absolutely incredible music. My all time favorite. Supper's Ready is a masterpiece of 24 minutes in length.

All the bands you mention here I know every single piece they played.

I was just watching the 35th Anniversary Yes DVD earlier this evening.

Also watching a bunch of King Crimson videos over at YouTube.

Yes, ELP, Pink Floyd, Genesis, King Crimson, Gentle Giant, Zappa, Marillion, Jethro Tull, Mike Oldfield, Kansas, etc. The list is not too long but man what music!

That's when rock music was real music.

Larks Tounges in Aspic! One of my favorite all time albums.

Book of Saturday

If I only could deceive you
Forgetting the game
Every time I try to leave you
You laugh just the same

'Cause my wheels never touch the road
And the jumble of lies we told
Just returns to my back to weigh me down...

We lay cards upon the table
The backs of our hands
And I swear I like your people
The boys in the band

Reminiscences gone astray
Coming back to enjoy the fray
In a tangle of night and daylight sounds...

All completeness in the morning
Asleep on your side
I'll be waking up the crewmen
Banana-boat ride

She responds like a limousine
Brought alive on the silent screen
To the shuddering breath of yesterday...

There's the succour of the needy
Incredible scenes
I'll believe you in the future
Your life and death dreams

As the cavalry of despair
Takes a stand in the lady's hair
For the favour of making sweet sixteen...

You make my life and times
A book of bluesy Saturdays
And I have to choose...

-Lyrics Richard W. Palmer-James.

David Cross (violin, viola, mellotron)
Robert Fripp (guitar, mellotron, devices)
John Wetton (bass, vocals)
Bill Bruford (drums)
Jamie Muir (percussion and allsorts)

I'm also a big Pink Floyd fan. Check out the Umagumma version of 'Careful with that axe, Eugene'. Never before has a Farfisa organ sounded so creepy! eek And Roger's inward scream will make your blood curdle and your skin go prickley pear.
Echoes (Pompeii version) rocks as well. I like the Syd Barrett era Floyd as well.

Some peope say there have been no geniuses in the genre of popular music, but Pink Floyd are it. They're up there with the great classical composers in my opinion. And I'm quite serious.

Emo has always been a favorite of mine. And yeah, he is playing now- touring with his own band, actually. And has a bunch of solo cds out. The Christmas Album is really nice. Keith Emerson

I heard a while ago that he was working on a Piano Concerto #2, but haven't seen anything since...
