Pink Floyd – The Story of Wish You Were Here

This will not be a news flash for Pink Floydians, but I have been surprised recently in conversations of the number of people who are not aware of a really great documentary of the making of Pink Floyd “Wish You Were Here.” If there has ever been pressure on a band to follow up after breakthrough commercial success in music, this is it. If you recall, Wish You Were Here was the follow up album to Dark Side of the Moon, need we say more.

The (59) minute film was released in 2012 and has interviews with all four Pink Floyd members, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright and Nick Mason. There is a a focus on specifics for all the tracks like Have a Cigar and Welcome to the Machine, but there is also a large section on how the record was inspired by co-founder Syd Barrett. The band gives candid insight on the relationship each member had with him. We were struck by the sincere sadness you could see from Roger Waters and David Gilmour about the loss of this great talent and great friend.

Also,  there are awesome interviews with the visual side of Pink Floyd in cartoonist Gerald Scarfe and designer Storm Thorgerson. They are both heroes to us here at KnuckleBonz.

The Story of Wish You Were Here It is easily streamed on a number of video services. We caught it this weekend on the music streaming service Qello.

We have lots in the works with Pink Floyd now in all 3 of our collector series, Rock Iconz®, 3D Vinyl® and On Tour ™. Check that out here.

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.
