Pink Floyd write songs for Stadiums!

Pink Floyd are an English rock band that have sold an estimated 75 million albums in the United States alone.

With their laid back blues influenced psychedelic rock they have had hits like: Another Brick In The Wall, Comfortably Numb, Money and Wish You Were Here.

Having gone through several member changes Pink Floyd have always remained epic sounding.

Pink Floyd is all about the album experience, check out: Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, The Wall and The Division Bell.

Wish You Were Here followed Dark Side Of The Moon!

Wish You Were here is the title track off Pink Floyd’s 1975 studio album.

To attempt a follow up of 1973′s Dark Side Of The Moon is not a job any band would like, but Pink Floyd certainly delivered with Wish You Were Here.

This album dealt with Syd Barrett’s mental state, both Shine On You Crazy Diamond and Wish You Were Here are directly written about Syd.

Recorded on and off at Abbey Road studios (same studio as The Beatles used) Wish You Were Here was completed over many sessions.

The material came from ideas the band had come up with during touring Dark Side Of The Moon.
