Pink Floyd are an English rock band that earned recognition for their psychedelic rock music, and, as they evolved, for their avant-garde progressive rock music. Pink Floyd were known for philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, innovative cover art, and elaborate live shows. One of rock music's most successful and influential acts, the group has sold over 250 million albums worldwide, and an estimated 73.5 million albums in the United States alone.

Pink Floyd had moderate success in the late 1960s as a psychedelic band led by the late Syd Barrett, however, Barrett's erratic behaviour forced his colleagues to eventually replace him with guitarist and singer David Gilmour. After Barrett's departure, singer and bass player Roger Waters gradually became the band's leader and main songwriter. Under Waters, the band recorded several concept albums, achieving worldwide success with The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), and The Wall (1979). In 1985, Waters declared Pink Floyd defunct, but the remaining members, led by Gilmour, continued recording and touring under the name, enjoying commercial success and eventually reaching a settlement with Waters.

Waters performed with the band for the first time in 24 years, on July 2, 2005 at the London Live 8 concert, playing to Pink Floyd's biggest audience ever. In early February 2006, Gilmour gave an interview to the Italian newspaper La Repubblica, indicating that the band would no longer tour or produce any new material, although various members still plan on producing solo or collaborative material. The possibility of an appearance similar to Live 8 has not been ruled out by either Mason, Gilmour, or Waters.

Pink Floyd !!!!!
يا جماعة الفريق ده هو الموسيقى.. عمركم شفتوا حفلة روك الناس قاعدة تسمع وكأنهم بيسمعوا أوبرا؟؟؟
دول بيطلعوا على المسرح علشان يظبطوا الدمغة ... الكل قاعد يسمع مش يتفرج
أى واحد بيلعب موسيقى عارف إنهم أكبر معلمين... عايزين تشوفوا العظمة بتاعتهم حاولوا تدوروا على ألبوم مصور إسمه "بومباى" من حوالى 30 سنة وهم صغيرين .... عموما هو موجود عندى... وعندى كمان ألبوماتهم كلها وأغانى نادرة
