A friend of mine recently admitted he was under the impression that Bob Geldof was a member of Pink Floyd all these years. This caused me to consider that the average person may have no idea who Pink Floyd really is.
Pink Floyd consist(ed) of:
Roger Waters on Bass & Vocals from 1965-1985
Syd Barrett on Guitar an vocals from 1965-1969
Rick Wright on Keyboards from 1965-1979, 1987-2008
Nick Mason on Drum from 1965 onward
David Gilmour on Guitar and vocals from 1968 to present
Roger left in 1985 thinking he WAS the band. David and Nick continued on and brought Rick Wright back to the fold. Rick passed away in 2008.
