Pink Floyd Suffers A Momentary Lapse Of Reason On 30th Anniversary Of Comeback

Dallas, TX - Aug 31, 2017.  North American syndicated Rock radio show IN THE STUDIO with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands gets the story behind one of Rock history’s most contentious and public rights disputes, and one of the biggest comebacks in rock history. The story behind Pink Floyd’s 1987 comeback album A Momentary Lapse Of Reason.
Amidst some of the most successful and celebrated albums of the Seventies, creative and personal tensions had been building until Pink Floyd disintegrated during the making of 1982’s The Final Cut.  By 1985 the only musical output from any of the members of Pink Floyd had come in the form of solo albums, and in December of that year Roger Waters, who created the concepts and the lyrics to such quintessential rock masterpieces as The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall, would announce his departure, triggering a noisy two year legal battle for the rights to Pink Floyd. 
In the end a David Gilmour fronted Floyd would emerge producing A Momentary Lapse of Reason in September ’87. Critical response was surprisingly lukewarm, but a sold out stadium tour and two # 1 rock singles with “Learning To Fly” and “On The Turning Away” proved that, as far as the worthiness of a Waters-less Pink Floyd, the fans had the only vote that matters. Drummer Nick Mason is joined IN THE STUDIO with guitarist, singer, songwriter Gilmour, who readily admits to show producer and host Redbeard the pressure that he felt going forward. 
“Lurching into the future bearing the mantle of Pink Floyd without Roger in 1987 was a tough one, as anyone can imagine... You’re right to say that I was confident at the end and happy. Anyone would be happy and confident in the end when our moving forward and doing what we did, making the album, doing the tour, was justified.”  - David Gilmour

February 14, 2017, Dallas, TX -  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website In The Studio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands examines the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd Animals through interviews with David Gilmour, Nick Mason and big-concept composer Roger Waters conducted by host Redbeard.
How did Pink Floyd evolve from the sublime cynicism of Dark Side of the Moon to the madness and despair of The Wall six years later?  Hear first-hand the vital importance of this transitional Pink Floyd album Animals and the tipping point on the final stadium concert of that tour which sparked the eventual building of The Wall.
“At the end of this Montreal show there was some kid trying to climb up the chain link fencing. I got so angry with this kid who was screaming all through “Mother” or one of the quieter songs, anyway, I finally got so angry I spat at this child. He was 14 or 15, I suppose. And when I came off stage afterwards I thought, ‘What have I been reduced to, here?... What has happened to the relationship between the band and the audience?’ So, the wall was something that I had experienced very powerfully through most of that tour, but specifically on that day.”  - Roger Waters

“We’ve never had any sacred idea about what we think we ought to be or what we ought to sound like.”  - David Gilmour
“After this long, I think people are now so used to the fact that bands are so much more dysfunctional than that (mop top “Monkees” image). There is a reality to it. When you get creative people, frequently it is of limited duration.”

Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason on PINK FLOYD's Epic 1979 Album The Wall

Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason Deconstruct Pink Floyds Epic 1979 Album The Wall @ 35

Dallas, TX - December 17, 2014.  North American syndicated Rock radio program and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind Historys Greatest Rock Bands revisits the second highest-selling album in history, Pink Floyds The Wall  on its 35th anniversary.

By the late Seventies, Pink Floyd had all the commercial success a band could imagine, but not without battle wounds. The relationships between composer/ bassist Roger Waters and the other band members, as well as between Waters and the audience, had been strained and distorted by the time of The Wall. The only thing left was the music.  

In a two-part, two week special InTheStudio radio program, host Redbeard speaks with The Wall architect Roger Waters, singer/guitarist David Gilmour, and percussionist Nick Mason about building one of RocknRolls crowning recording, live production, and cinematic achievements. 

Based on a music superstars plunge into the dark side of success which eventually results in absolute isolation, both emotionally and physically, from the audience he or she purports to attract, Roger Waters sadly recounts the autobiographical nature of The Wall  and the defining moment he remembers it coming to life.

During a show in Montreal I finally got so angry  that I spat at this child, he was 14 or 15 I suppose. When I got off stage afterwards I thought, What have I been reduced to? And what has happened to the relationship between the band and the audience?  So, The Wall was something that I had experienced very powerfully through most of that (Animals) tour, but specifically on that day.  - Roger Waters

InTheStudio can be heard on over 40 radio stations across North America.             
PINK FLOYD  The Wall / InTheStudio programs air the weeks of Dec 15th & Dec 22nd.

Pink Floyd's David Gilmour & Nick Mason Navigate The Endless River  With InThe Studio's Redbeard

Dallas, TX - November 11, 2014.  InTheStudio.Net the web home for North American syndicated Rock radio program InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands  wades into the deep end with David Gilmour and Nick Mason of Pink Floyd to sail through their surprising new album, The Endless River.

The initial notice was innocuous enough, a single tweet among millions sent that day last Summer, washed up on the shore like some electronic message in a bottle: Pink Floyd, one of the world's most popular rock bands ever, would be delivering their first album in 20 years containing studio recordings by guitarist/singer David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason, but also the late Pink Floyd keyboard player Rick Wright, who died in 2008.  For hardcore fans this was the music that had been rumored to exist, but never officially released until now. The questions rushed like river rapids: after telling InTheStudio host Redbeard during two previous interviews that he was 'out of Pink Floyd, and I will stay out', what had changed David Gilmour's mind?

In an in-depth interview Gilmour and Mason reveal the inspiration, motivation, and lengthy timeline for The Endless River ; how it came to be, why it was shelved initially and what inspired the two to finish what they started so many years ago with fellow bandmate the late Richard Wright.

'We could not have made this record 20 years ago. It would have been impossible. I'm very happy to be releasing this material now. It would have seemed very incomplete to me if we didn't put something out.'  -  David Gilmour

'I think on this record, there's an element of homage and a recognition of Rick. It's perhaps making up for lack of recognition prior to this. He's always perhaps been the unsung hero.'   -  Nick Mason
