    I guess if it's determined by the higher ups that this is not kosher then this thread will not last long. So here is to hoping any higher up wishing to remove this thread will have to take thorazine before so they can't. :D
    Pink Floyd is my favorite band. I am more of a fan of the first fifteen albums after Roger Waters left I felt it became more the Gilmour band and less of Pink Floyd. All my current ringtones and notifications are currently Pink Floyd From Piper to The Final Cut. I will post more as time permits

    Ok I'm back with more to post :D

    Syd Barrett and Roger Waters initially Started the band and Syd had a deep dark secret that didn't stay secret for very long while on tour for the first album he had trouble playing through complete songs so he ended up calling in a buddy of his to "help" him out his buddy was David Gilmour. By the time the band made it to the studio for their second album A saucerful of Secrets Barret was pretty much Gone. His mental illness mixed with his drug addiction had him to far gone to do any serious music. David became a permanent member of the band. And the rest is history.

    One of my favourite albums from the band I feel was really in the peak of the band and its Atom Heart Mother. I think that this is the album that really defines the band as a musical powerhouse. The Album cover was simplistic by the bands request they didn't want anything that was "labeling" so they ended up with a picture of just a cow. And the Album cover ended up as a picture of just a Cow. No Labels Not Artist Name, Nothing. The Actual Name Atom Heart Mother came from a news paper Clipping about a mother who was given a Pace Maker. While the Album and The "Song" had nothing to do with the Article it certainly had something to do with the direction the group was going.

    I want this thread to be a honest thread so why do you like/dislike Pink Floyd. Please keep it RESPECTFUL. Also feel free to exchange ringtones, notifications, wallpapers, splashscreens, bootanimations, and so on.

    Well, we all know the Floyd is one of the all time great bands. The album that made me noticed them the most was The Dark Side of the Moon 1973, when it first came out. But back in those days, they wasn't considered my all time favorite band either.

    Just my thoughts!

    Yes Dark Side spent more time on the top 200 than any other album in history. I don't remember the total time but I do believe it was close to 20 years and to think the band never won a gramy for the album either.

    Still my favorite concert, by far. Saw them in either '88 or '89, @ the L.A. Coliseum. Was pleasantly surprised as to how well the music played in a concert/arena setting.
    No one else has come close to that performance,AWESOME!

    My old man turned me onto the Floyd when I was in Jr. High, and I've been hooked since!! :D

    I wanted to go see the Pulse tour, but the old man thought I was still a little too young at the time. I was already smoking...ERR...enjoying the "finer" things in life by then, unbeknownst to him. LOL :D

    Still rock out to the Floyd on a very regular basis. :)

    Listen to Floyd everyday, easily one of the best bands every formed.

    Animals is my favorite album, I listen to Dogs constantly hahaha

    You really can't get much better than them, every song made by them is pure genius

    I love darkside of course as everyone does but I really think my favorite album is Atom Heart Mother. It never gets old :D

    They have had such an impact with their music I love the fact that if they wanted to do a song they did it rather it was "Country" or "Rock" based they could do it and not be questioned about why? It was accepted and loved :)

    Good call! I thought it was only me liked AHM - even the band don't like it. Been a Pink Floyd fan since I first heard DSOM in a mates car. He had just insalled the latest hifi system (cassette of course, it was 1974) and Time just blew me away.

    Since then I've listened to just about everything they've done and love it all.:D

    Was listening to Sirius all weekend as they are promoting the upcoming Pink Floyd station due to start on June 29th. Definitely one of the greatest bands during my lifetime, that has no doubt withstood the test of time.

    My favorite album - Meddle

    Ummagumma...Does anyone like or can understand what Sysyphus, parts 2,3 and 4 are about? Just sounds like a load of screeching and banging of instruments to me. A Saucer Full of Secrets (live) now that's bloody awesome, especially the organ.

    I'm actually listening to all 24 minutes of Echoes on the cans as I make this post. It's still my favourite Floyd track.

    Another huge floyd fan here, was so lucky to see them at Live 8.. I've also seen Waters' Dark Side tour and Gilmour on his On an Island tour... loved all of them.

    My favourite album changes from time to time but usually I'm listening to anything from meddle up, also love the various live albums. My favourite song is Time but Echoes and SOYCD are right up there too :D

    "Fat Old Sun" as played by David Gilmour during his 2008 tour.

    Or maybe "Comfortably Numb" as played by Pink Floyd (sans Waters, good riddance) during their 1986 tour. "The mirror ball, the mirror ball..."

    I really can't compare an audio track to the experience of what was arguably PF's finest tour ever. That stage, those hovering leviathans spewing out unbelievable light patterns, Rachel Fury in a "Pan Am" style stewardess outfit, David Gilmour staring me right in the face as he played, and that mirror ball... So much more than just a tune, that.

    Personally I don't miss Waters one bit. I don't care for much of his contributions after Wish You Were Here, and find it hard to forgive his behavior before he left the group.

    I got to see David Gilmour on tour supporting his first two solo albums, and got to see Pink Floyd in four separate venues in 1986. I saw them live one last time at RFK Stadium in DC in 1994. That tour couldn't hold a candle to the Momentary Lapse tour, though.

    My deepest regret was missing Gilmour's last tour with Rick Wright, right before he passed away. Wright was by far the second biggest contributor to the group's music, and a peerless musician in general. I think his "Wet Dream" album is as fresh today as it was back in 1978 when I first heard it.

    Sadly my concert-T collection that I was saving to mount and frame was thrown out by a stupid person. I still have trinkets from the '86 and '94 tours. I even have a pin from Peter Gabriel's tour supporting his third "Peter Gabriel" album. Can't believe that I wore that on a jacket over a decade of wild situations and didn't lose it!

    Nice! Most of my concert shirts are from Type O Negative shows over the years. RIP Peter Steele...

    You don't like Animals, the Wall or Final Cut? He practically wrote all 3 on his own. His solo albums are amazing too, different to Floyd but Amused to Death is as good as anything by Floyd, most of which he wrote. I love all the members of Floyd but Waters was without a doubt the largest contributor Lyrically and Musically... he was a control freak and probably not a nice guy to work with but that made Floyd the monster they were.

    My only chance to see Floyd was in Germany in the 70's and for some reason wasn't able to go. I always regretted it but I've been listening to them for almost 40 years. Still the best band and music out there.
