Pink Floyd- The Division Bell 30th Anniversary- David Gilmour, Nick Mason

March 1994's "The Division Bell" by Pink Floyd became the last offering of new music from the remaining triumvirate of singer/guitarist/composer David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason, and keyboard player Richard Wright. "The Division Bell" sold over three million copies just in the Nineties thirty years ago. Gilmour and Mason join me In the Studio on the 30th anniversary.

Pink Floyd- Dark Side of the Moon 50th- David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters

To illustrate how seriously many of the post-British Invasion bands were approaching the rock idiom by early 1973, you need look no further than Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" to see how this progressive rock movement had matured,  with spectacular results both artistically and commercially, confirmed in this fiftieth anniversary classic rock interview by my guests, musical lunar explorers David Gilmour, Roger Waters, and Nick Mason.

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.

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.

Pink Floyd- The Endless River- David Gilmour, Nick Mason

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.
