In the first half of the Eighties, Pink Floyd was M.I.A. for five long years, conspicuous in their absence for instance at the largest one day gathering of rock royalty, Live Aid, in July 1985. It was not until the end of that year that Roger Waters' official departure from Pink Floyd was revealed to the other band members, and this bowling ball revelation left the group with the musical equivalent of the dreaded 7-10 split. David Gilmour spills the beans & spills his guts, & drummer Nick Mason analyzes the net effect, here In the Studio for "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" 35th anniversary.

How did Pink Floyd evolve from the sublime introspection of "Dark Side of the Moon" in 1973 to the madness and despair of "The Wall" six years later? David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Roger Waters explore the dark, ominous, yet vitally important transitional musical missing link, January 1977's Animals here in my classic rock interview, an album that was highly anticipated.

Judging by the sheer outsized volume of well-deserved attention heaped on Pink Floyd's 1973 game changer "Dark Side of the Moon", one could easily assume it was the Cambridge, England quartet's first of any consequence. "Meddle", containing the embryonic epic "Echoes", my guests Pink Floyd's David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and co-founder with Syd Barrett, Roger Waters unanimously maintain that "Meddle" was their Apollo 8 musical mission which soon after allowed Pink Floyd's lunar landing on the far side of rock history.

"You try following up Dark Side of the Moon. Go on, just try it!" playfully admonishes Pink Floyd guitarist/ singer David Gilmour."We've been trying to do it ever since!", laughs drummer Nick Mason. Gilmour and Mason are my guests, Roger Waters makes a cameo, and we include archive comments from the late keyboard player Richard Wright to round out the definitive classic rock interview regarding Wish You Were Here on its forty-fifth anniversary.

Roger Waters admitted to me that in 1980 Pink Floyd had been guaranteed one million dollars per night to perform "The Wall" on a stadium tour. "And I refused to do it outdoors," Waters tells me in this classic rock interview. "But how can you do a show, that's about the alienation you feel about doing stadium shows, in a stadium?"

In mid-March 1994 I had been driven to a decommissioned Air Force base in the California desert at dusk, where we were met at the gate by Military Police with white gloves and live ammo in their M-16 rifles. The reason that the British band Pink Floyd was rehearsing their 1994 "Division Bell" North American tour at a U.S. military base was simply because nothing smaller than a B-52 hangar could accommodate the massive stage, lights, and sound system.

Interviews with Pink Floyd's David Gilmour and Nick Mason about "The Endless River" for the fascinating back story of a "final " musical statement, 1994's "The Division Bell", which was never intended to be the superstar progressive rock band's last word but which nevertheless became that when Pink Floyd keyboard player Rick Wright died in 2008.
