Pink Floyd were a [[UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} British]] [[PsychedelicRock Psychedelic]] and ProgressiveRock band which formed in 1965. The initial line-up consisted of Music/SydBarrett and Rado "Bob" Klose on guitar, Music/RogerWaters on bass, Richard Wright on keyboard and Nick Mason on drums. They recorded several songs before Klose left to focus on studies. [[note]]these songs would later be released in 2015 on the EP ''1965: Their First Recordings'' [[/note]] The four-piece then went on to gain a reputation as one of the foremost British Psychedelic bands, releasing two singles and the now-classic LP ''Music/ThePiperAtTheGatesOfDawn'' before Barrett's mental state, brought on my heavy drug use, began to decline significantly. The band then recruited David Gilmour, a childhood friend of Barrett and Waters, into the band, eventually replacing Barrett during the making of ''Music/ASaucerfulOfSecrets''. While Barrett's state declined to the point where he left the music industry and became a recluse, he would remain a massive influence to the band, and haunt the band's future music.

As to the band's place in rock history, Pink Floyd's influence extends across hard rock, ElectronicMusic and AlternativeRock. David Gilmour is widely considered one of the best rock guitarists ever, for his melodic solos and mastery of tone and vibrato, as well for his voice, used often in contrast to Waters' vocals, or complement his guitar parts. Syd Barrett, despite his short and troubled tenure in the band, is still renowned for the highly experimental music he created, and his lyrics as well are held in high regard. Roger Waters' lyrics are well-known for their high quotient of satirical humour and general quotability, as are his strong bass-lines and his highly dramatic vocals. Keyboardist Rick Wright was the band's own acknowledged "secret weapon" for his backing vocals and occasional lead vocals along with his {{jazz}}-influenced keyboard textures, which became a key component of the band's sound. Nick Mason... Er, is the drummer, and is the band's official archivist. Mason gets very little (though not none at all) in the way of writing credits [[note]] in fact, the only reason he had a credit on "Speak to Me" was because Waters gave it away [[/note]], vocal parts [[note]] he speaks through a ring modulator on "One of These Days," recites an electronically distorted poem on "Signs of Life," and sings on the officially unreleased "The Merry Xmas Song" and "Scream Thy Last Scream" alongside Barrett, and on "Corporal Clegg" alongside Wright and Gilmour [[/note]], or overall notice, but he ironically is the only member to have played on every Floyd record [[note]]Gilmour wasn't there for the first, Wright didn't play on ''Music/TheFinalCut'', and Waters left after that record[[/note] and according to biographer Nicholas Schaffner, is responsible for many of the band's signature sound effects.

''Dark Side Of The Moon'' was the beginning of when most consider to be their golden era [[note]]Except for the hardcore Syd fans, who never thought the band was the same [[/note]]. It was followed by the albums ''Music/WishYouWereHere'' and ''Music/{{Animals}}''. By the late 1970's, Roger Waters was firmly in full control of the band, and was calling most of the shots on what the band's direction creatively. Next came 1979's ''Music/TheWall'', which would become another classic on par with ''Dark Side Of The Moon''. However, by that point, the band was beginning to splinter, and Richard Wright -- the person who defined much of Pink Floyd's sound -- was fired during the making of the album.

After Barrett's departure, Pink Floyd struggled initially, with the period between the albums ''Music/{{More}}'' and ''Music/AtomHeartMother'' (or ''Music/ObscuredByClouds'', for some fans) generally considered to be their DorkAge, and the band looks back on the post-[[Music/ASaucerfulOfSecrets Saucerful]], pre-Music/{{Meddle}} era [[CreatorBacklash with also with embarrassment]]. But, by the time of 1973's ''Music/{{Meddle}}'', they began to tone down the experimentalism and EpicRocking, refining their signature sound, and eventually hitting the big time with their next album, ''Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon''. The lyrics began to become more weighty, mostly revolving around themes of isolation, death, insanity, and criticisms of modern society. A re-occurring theme of isolation from society also began to become more visible as Waters took more control of the band, and they began an impressive run of success with a series of complex ProgressiveRock albums.
