I've been to more than my share of concerts in my 53 years. Best ever? Floyd at the Rose Bowl in 94-95. Random precision...

Saw them at solders field in chicago when momentary lapse of reason came out." Dont need to be high to logically enjoy this band of all times, i feel like ive known David all my life! 2 lost souls, swimming in a fish bowl.

The Very Best version of Shine

The best song of all times especially when baked! But you can listen with headphones and really get deep in your own head. For those who don't smoke herb if you will listen to it like that, you will know how it feels to be high. You will be humbled

Hell yeah! Great tune!

Masterpiece, can't say enough...

Written for/about Syd, the founder of Floyd, whom they so graciously shared royalties with long after he left the band.

Sid Barrett was not in the crazy house!!! He lived with his mother for the rest of his days ****** She's absolutely correct. Barrett got to the point where he was paranoid of strangers and eventually to a point where he couldn't go on stage. He showed up at one of their recording sessions a few years later and they didn't recognize him. I think Gilmore finally did and he mentioned it to the others.

I was fortunate enough to be able to put together a mixtape for my wifes and my wedding. My beautiful wife came down the aisle with the guitar intro. That was in 1988 and I still haven't thought of a better way to do it. It was perfect.

No one is better than jimmy page. I love Floyd but as a guitar player myself I know the dif in style speed dexterity and difficult oh and adversity. There is no comparison

Gilmour is not a better guitarist than Jimmy Page, Dickie Betts, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, Eddie Van Halen, Jeff Beck, Slash...

Holy cow, so much better than the original!!

MMEEE,Inc, I share the same thoughts. The rise to stardom, and the ensuing never ending party that follows, claimed too many souls. I was always content with my garage band second job. Hendrix, Joplin, Morrison, Moon, Cobain,...th e list is far too long.

The guitar at the beginning gives me chills

Shine On You Crazy Diamond never got the attention that it deserved. It is still one of best rock songs ever.

Such a shame that Syd barret lost his mind. He really was special to roger, David, and everyone in his life. I'm sure they had a hard time letting him go. To have a friend that's still physically alive but mentally and emotionally dead really hurts you because u feel somewhat responsible. Rip Syd Barret
