When most people think of classic rock they think of Pink Floyd and their impact on popular music. With classic hits like Comfortably Numb, Wish You Were Here, and Time, Pink Floyd created a legacy that will live on forever.
In 1966, Pink Floyd put on a hallucinatory presentation of lights and music at London’s Roundhouse which lead to their ultimate success in rock and roll, making them the most influential rock band in history.
Pink Floyd debut album, Piper at the Gates of Dawn, epitomized the year of 1967 with its psychedelic feel; hit song Interstellar Overdrive, a nine minute instrumental, was one of rocks first forays into deep space.
Pink Floyd always had great success with their albums but it wasn’t until Dark Side of the Moon that they hit the pinnacle of success. This 1973 hit took the number one spot on the Billboard charts and broke records by staying in the Top 200 album charts for 741 weeks; the album did not drop off the charts until 1988.
Due to Pink Floyd’s music journey, epic songs, and mesmerizing shows it is no wonder why bands are still coming together to give fans the ultimate Pink Floyd experience. San Francisco band, House of Floyd, began performing in 2005 to give a real look in to what it was like to be at a Pink Floyd concert. House of Floyd prides themselves on not just replicating songs but creating the adventurous live arrangements and sonic explorations that goes with the Pink Floyd name.
You can catch House of Floyd this Saturday, November 7th at the Pink Floyd Concert Experience held at the Bob Hope Theatre.
