From its beginnings as an improvising blues-band psychedelic band with pop hit singles to a period when journalists insisted on describing Pink Floyd, mistakenly as “electronic rockers”; from the ubiquitous Dark Side of the Moon to being the first rock band played in space; from tales of an underwear thief to the doom and gloom of The Wall, Pink Floyd have always been bigger, better and braver than the rest.
