Pink Anderson

A good-natured finger-picking guitarist, Anderson played for about 30 years as part of a medicine show. He did make a couple of sides for Columbia in the late '20s with Simmie Dooley, but otherwise didn't record until a 1950 session, the results of which were issued on a Riverside LP that also included tracks by Gary Davis. Anderson went on to make some albums on his own after the blues revival commenced in the early '60s, establishing him as a minor but worthy exponent of the Pidemont school, versed in blues, ragtime, and folk songs. Anderson also became an unusual footnote in rock history when Syd Barrett, a young man in Cambridge, England, combined Pink's first name with the first name of another obscure bluesman (Floyd Council) to name his rock group, Pink Floyd, in the mid-'60s. ~ Richie Unterberger

i believe pink floyd was called the teacups or something like that. They went to a gig where there was another band of the same name and had to change their name on the spur of the moment. hence the pink floyd experience.

Trivia answer is Floyd Council
Report as inappropriate
Pink Floyd's name was "The Pink Floyd Sound" before it was just "Pink Floyd".

Before that it was "The Tea Set" but they showed up to perform in a multi band gig and there was already a band on the roster named "The Tea Set" so they had to come up with a new name quickly. And "The Pink Floyd Sound" was born.

It blows my mind that Pink Anderson "did make a couple of sides for Columbia in the '20s" but his music sounds just as fresh now!!!!! peace

Big Larry- strange maybe, but certainly not too strage to contemplate. Think of the context surrounding Pink Floyd, and the "classic" rock era- this era coincided with the the so-called "blues renassaince" of the '60s, and guys like Hendrix, Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Keith Richards were modeling their guitar playing, and subsequently their songwriting, after blues artists like Elmore James, Muddy Waters, and of course, the celebrated Robert Johnson (note: all of the aforemention e d guitarists cove

The fact that Syd Barrett chose Pink Anderson as part of the name "Pink Floyd," is as bizarre as Syd Barrett himself. Considering Syd's musical output, naming his group after two obscure blues men is simply too strange to contemplate.

this is a great artist and pandora really does a good job with this genre. the lightin hopkins selections are the best hands down!!!

I created a blues genre station, and it's one of the better I've made so far. I've listened to Pink Floyd since I knew what music was (my dad loved them). I had heard Anderson's legend, but never his sound; I can see why Syd was so influenced by him.
