Pink Floyd discharged their first collection in 20 years this week. To praise the sprawling two-circle epic The Endless River, we should investigate all things Floyd with a rundown of ten things you won’t not think about the English prog legends.
1. The Dark Side Of The Moon was on the Billboard diagrams for a long time.
Pink Floyd got to be one of the greatest groups on the planet when they discharged The Dark Side Of The Moon in 1973, and the collection endured longer on the Billboard diagrams than some other collection, staying recorded until 1987 — an aggregate of 741 weeks. No other record has come extremely close to fixing that streak.
2. The Endless River will be the last collection discharged under the Pink Floyd name.
Not just is The Endless River the main Floyd collection in 20 years, it will likewise be the last. Drummer Nick Mason says he considers the recording to be a “reasonably graceful departure” for the band. The collection includes the last recordings of keyboardist Richard Wright, who passed away in 2008. With Wright out of the picture, and a gathering between Roger David Gilmour not happening, it wouldn’t bode well to utilize the Floyd name once more.
