It’s hard to imagine a world where Pink Floyd didn’t exist. But what if they hadn’t? If it weren’t for the album Dark Side of the Moon, would we have ever heard of David Gilmour? Would Roger Waters be known as one of the world’s greatest lyricists? Could Syd Barrett have been as influential on modern music as he was in his short life? Probably not! So let’s all thank our lucky stars that we live in a universe where these talented people found each other and created something so amazing.

Introduction

The band Pink Floyd was formed in 1965 and became one of the most influential bands in music history. The band’s album, “The Dark Side of the Moon,” has sold over 43 million copies worldwide and is considered by many to be one of the best selling albums ever made. Pink Floyd also produced two other classic albums—Wish You Were Here and The Wall—which are both among their highest selling albums.

A New Kind of Music for a New Kind of Culture

In the 1960s, Pink Floyd were a psychedelic rock band.

In the 1970s, they were a progressive rock band.

In the 1980s and 1990s, they became stadium rockers with an ever-growing cult following that included millions of fans from around the world.

The Original Insolent and Iconoclastic Space Rockers

Pink Floyd started out as a psychedelic band. They were unique, different from other bands of the day because they were more experimental and adventurous with their music, lyrics and sounds. Their songs had longer instrumental passages than was common in rock at that time, and some of these songs had lyrics that hinted at the feelings of alienation felt by many young people during this era.

Pink Floyd also drew on classical influences – especially those of early 20th century composers such as Igor Stravinsky and Edgard Varèse – in creating their soundscape for space rockers like “Interstellar Overdrive” (1965) which featured frenetic organ solos. It’s also known for its innovative use of tape loops: recordings made on one tape loop would be played simultaneously on two others creating an overlapping effect that simulated multiple instruments playing together but without any real musicians present!

UK Tour, U.S. Tour, and the Continued Legacy of Dark Side of the Moon

The Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon went on to become a huge success. The band toured all over the world, including the U.S., and sold over 40 million copies. Even today, it is considered one of the most influential albums in music history and has been remastered and rereleased several times to give fans new versions of their favorite songs. It has also been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame!

The album that would become Dark Side of the Moon came together over a long period of time — years, in fact.

The band had to learn how to use the studio and create the sound they wanted. They recorded at home and in the studio, using new technology as it became available to them.

Dark Side of the Moon is not just an album; it’s a piece of history. The record redefined what music could be, and its influence is felt still today. It all started years ago with Pink Floyd working on their debut album at Abbey Road Studios in London. Over time, they became more ambitious and experimental with their work, striving for something different from anything else being made at the time (and even now). Their hard work paid off when Dark Side finally came out — it was such a huge success that some critics call it “the best album ever recorded.”
