Over 50 years since the release of their first studio album, Pink Floyd’s extraordinary style of music and aesthetic continues to amaze and inspire listeners of all generations. In this superbly comprehensive and engrossing history of the group, Mark Blake tells how this group of Cambridge school friends went on the conquer the world with iconic albums like Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, and put on some of the most spectacular shows of all time. Drawing on over a hundred original interviews, Pigs Might Fly follows Pink Floyd from the early psychedelic nights at UFO in the mid-sixties through to the acrimonious schism that ended the band by the nineties. Now with a revised chapter to bring the story up to date and published to coincide with The V&A exhibition in 2017, Pigs Might Fly has been acclaimed as the definitive book on Pink Floyd.
