Pink Floyd members reunite to mark 50th anniversary of formation

Pink Floyd members reunite to mark 50th anniversary of formation

50 years ago, while students at London’s Regent Street Polytechnic, Roger Waters, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright formed Pink Floyd. On Thursday, Waters and Mason returned to their former school to celebrate the band’s semicentennial. The pair unveiled a commemorative plaque, and also reminisced about their early years.

“Put it like this: if we’d gone up for Britain’s Got Talent, I don’t think we would have made it past the audition stage,” Mason said. “We weren’t terribly good.” Added Waters, “We were effing awful.”

Pink Floyd is the second legendary music act to receive a Regent Street Heritage Plaque. The first was hung on London’s Heddon Street in 2012, the location used in the artwork for David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars.

Below, watch a brief video from the ceremony. If you’re wondering why David Gilmour did not attend the ceremony, it’s because he didn’t formally join the band until 1967.

Demons Premiere New Song, “There Is No Reward”

Demons

Demons–a Virginia Beach-based musical project started by longtime Mae guitarist Zach Gehring–will release their new EP, ‘Great Dismal,’ on June 16 via Spartan Records.

Gehring said, “‘There Is No Reward’ is probably the heaviest track on the EP.  The song has two movements and both really dig in on the groove. It’s a lot of fun to play. I think the drums sound great.”

Country radio consultant Keith Hill stirred up a proverbial hornets’ nest this week when he told a Nashville-based industry trade publication, “If you want to make ratings in country radio, take females out.” That was incendiary enough, but he also equated… Read more »
