The Pink Floyd Exhibition Coming to LA – KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz “On Tour” for Sure!

Pink Floyd Exhibition

The Pink Floyd Exhibition Coming to LA – KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz “On Tour” for Sure!

The Pink Floyd Exhibition that originally debuted in London in coming to LA to the Vogue Multicultural Museum. The exhibition was curated by the band David Glimour, Roger Waters, Richard Wright and Nick Mason and Aubrey Powell, the Hypnosis  co-founder. He and designer Storm Thorgerson and collaborated on many Pink Floyd album art concepts and designs.

Many things from all the Pink Floyd eras that you would expect to see will be on display, like a myriad of music instruments, or the Pink Floyd Pig. But, some you might now expect. If the LA version of the museum mirrors the UK, you will see the cane that Roger Water got his licks from in his school boy days with Syd Barrett. This was a direct influence to the Teacher character from Pink Floyd The Wall.

We are personally looking forward to seeing the Division Bell heads in all there metallic glory inside the exhibit along with lyric sheets from Dark Side of the Moon, Pink Floyd Animals and many others.

This will be a hot ticket with Covid restrictions still in place…check the https://www.vmmla.com website for ticket sales information.

You might even see a KnuckleBonz Collectible or 2 while you are there…

Here’s a good overview video from the Pink Floyd Exhibition in London.

Pink Floyd Live Mirror Ball “Wish You Were There”

As far back as 1975, Pink Floyd began a live tradition of their completely uniquely take on the “Mirror Ball”. The circular projection screen was in place, and to add to the live light show effects, the flower themed mirror ball was introduced. This is so Pink Floyd. It took on several forms all the way to the amazing live spectacle in 1994 for the Pink Floyd stadium tour in 1994 in support of the album “Division Bell.” The Floyd line up was David Gilmour, Richard Wright and Nick Mason. The Floyd acrimony with Roger Waters was at it’s zenith.

Check out these live shots of this legendary “On Tour” live stage props. These still still shots are from the 1975  Wish You Were Hear,  1977 Animals and 1994 tours.

This live video of from 1994 Division Bell Tour. The Huge mirror ball morphed into a flower bloom during the performance of Comfortably Numb. Enjoy…”Wish You Were There”

Music You Can “See” – The Great Album Cover Artists and Designers of Rock

Not all heroes in the the KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz®, 3D Vinyl® and On Tour™ and On Tour Series played an instrument. The paint brush and camera lens also made music for all of us when wielded  by the great album cover artist and designers.

Before the digital age of music, Album and Poster art was and essential part of the music Superfan experience.  It the same flag many of us still fly today on the art we have in the house or the clothes we wear. Can you imagine  Pink Floyd’s legacy with the designs of Storm Thorgerson? The “Dark Side of the Moon” Prism, all of the “Wish You Were Here” “Hand Shakes” the “Delicate Sound of Thunder” “Lightbulb Man.” Aubrey Powell founded the great Hypgnosis (In Collaboration w/ Storm Thorgerson) and gave us classic Led Zeppelin cover art from “Houses of the Holy” and .  Could we ever  separate Pink Floyd “The Wall” from the illustrator and cartoonist Gerald Scarfe? We think not. So many of the great bands we love are so closely tied to the great artists that were associated with their album releases. Roger Dean defined the band “Yes” with unbelievable illustration and graphic design that almost let you here the albums before you dropped the needle. Many of us discovered the fantasy art master Frank Frazetta, from the album art of Molly Hatchet before we ever heard of “Conan the Barbarian” The list goes on. Can you imagine Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow without the “Rainbow Raising” cover painting of Ken Kelly? Oh yes, what we owe the KISS Destroyer cover to him as well…

For us, these images are as  as important as the music that plays when you drop the needle. It’s an essential part of why we are in our 18th year here at KnuckleBonz.

Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” – Simple Designs Can Be the Most Complex

Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” – Simple Designs Can Be the Most Complex

When we began the initial discussions for our 3D Vinyl® Limited Edition State Series in 2017, the initial focus what to create something in statue and collectible form for Superfans™ that for what ever reason, did not dig the statue category. There was a ton of creative motivation obviously, but that was the touchstone moment.

Once we decided to move forward with a new KnuckleBonz collectible series, the real fun began; what albums should we initially create in 3D? We all blurted out our obvious favorites. Some were perfect for the 3D Vinyl format and could be expressed easily in statue form. Others, although amazing albums, with equally great cover art would prove elusive. One album that we all defaulted to and wanted to consider, was Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.” The gold standard for concept albums, and the 8th studio release for Pink Floyd. The power of artist Storm Thorgerson’s pyramid with the prism light beam? Sounds great right? We are now 4 years into the 3D Vinyl Collector Series and we still have not pulled the trigger on any Dark Side of the Moon designs for 3D Vinyl. However, we are sneaking up on it and might submit something to Pink Floyd for consideration soon…Staytuned.
