UPDATED FOR 2017 WITH A NEW CHAPTER The definitive history of Pink Floyd, one of the world's great bands, by founder member Nick Mason. Pink Floyd is one of the most creative, successful and enduring bands of all time. As the only member to have been part of the band throughout the 50 years of its existence, and the first to write a personal take on their history, Nick Mason gives unique insights into Pink Floyd's highs and lows: from their emergence in the late 1960s underground, to the huge worldwide success of The Dark Side of the Moon and the rifts and pressures that developed within the group. In a new chapter Nick Mason looks back at the years following the band's final performance at Live 8 in July 2005 and reflects on the huge changes that have occurred since: the irreplaceable losses, the new releases and the impact on the Floyd's continued success of both digital technology and social media. Intelligent, original and self-deprecating, Inside Out is the first-hand story of a band that has become a legend, as celebrated by the Victoria & Albert Museum's landmark Pink Floyd exhibition in 2017.

Pocos negarán que Pink Floyd ha sido y es una de las bandas más creativas de toda la historia de la música popular. Representantes de la psicodelia más enfebrecida, sus coqueteos con el rock sinfónico a principios de los setenta los catapultó a la primera línea de la escena mundial, hasta convertirse en uno de los pocos nom bres que pudieron medirse con los representantes de lo que más tarde se llamaría cultura oficial. Dentro de Pink Floyd da cuenta de los avatares por los que debieron pasar todos sus integrantes, si bien de una manera peculiar, ya que por primera vez un miembro de la banda ha escrito una visión personal sobre su historia. Nick Mason, su genial baterista y uno de los fundadores, aporta una perspectiva única sobre los mejores y peores momentos, desde la efervescencia del underground de finales de los años sesenta o el gran éxito mundial de The Dark Side of the Moon, uno de los álbumes más vendidos de la historia, hasta las desavenencias y tensiones dentro del seno de la banda. Inteligente, original y autocrítica, ésta es la historia de primera mano de una banda que se ha convertido con pleno derecho en uno de los referentes del último recio del siglo pasado.

With their early experiments in psychedelic rock music in the 1960s, and their epic recordings of the 1970s and '80s, Pink Floyd became one of the most influential and recognizable rock bands in history. As "The Pink Floyd Sound," the band created sound and light shows that defined psychedelia in England and inspired similar movements in the Jefferson Airplane's San Francisco and Andy Warhol's New York City. The band's subsequent recordings forged rock music's connections to orchestral music, literature, and philosophy. "Dark Side of the Moon" and "The Wall" ignored pop music's ordinary topics to focus on themes such as madness, existential despair, brutality, alienation, and socially induced psychosis. They also became some of the best-selling recordings of all time. In this collection of essays, sixteen scholars expert in various branches of philosophy set the controls for the heart of the sun to critically examine the themes, concepts, and problems—usually encountered in the pages of Heidegger, Foucault, Sartre, or Orwell—that animate and inspire Pink Floyd's music. These include the meaning of existence, the individual's place in society, the interactions of knowledge and power in education, the contradictions of art and commerce, and the blurry line—the tragic line, in the case of Floyd early member Syd Barrett (died in 2006)—between genius and madness. Having dominated pop music for nearly four decades, Pink Floyd's dynamic and controversial history additionally opens the way for these authors to explore controversies about intellectual property, the nature of authorship, and whether wholes—especially in the case of rock bands—are more than the sums of their parts.

Syd Barrett was the lead guitarist, vocalist, and principle songwriter in the original line up of Pink Floyd. During his brief time with the band (1966-68) he was the driving force behind the unit. After he left the band he made just two further solo albums which were both released in 1970, before withdrawing from public view to lead a quiet, and occasionally troubled life in Cambridge, the town of his birth. Rob Chapman's book is the first authoritative and exhaustively researched biography of Syd Barrett that fully celebrates his life and legacy as a musician, lyricist and artist, and which highlights the influence that he continues to have over contemporary bands and music fans alike.
