Flying Pigs

Pigs Might Fly: The Inside Story of Pink Floyd
by Mark Blake (2013)

This book covers Pink Floyd from their Cambridge beginnings in the early sixties to their triumphant re-formation at Live 8 in 2005 24 years after their last live performance together and the death of their troubled founder-member Syd Barrett a year later.

Despite this being an update on the original 2008 book, it predates Pink Floyd’s latest album ‘The Endless River’ (2014). It’s very extensive an thoroughly covers the bands history. However at 180,000 words there were times it could have done with a bit if trimming.
