Pink Floyd Mark 50th Anniversary

Pink Floyd
Pink Floyd members have gathered to the site where it all started 50 years ago with a commemorative plaque in honour of their illustrious career.

Founding members Roger Waters and Nick Mason unveiled plaque at the University of Westminster where the band had formed in 1965, which was formally known as the Regent Street Polytechnic.

Drummer Nick Mason had told BBC News: "Put it like this: if we’d gone up for Britain’s Got Talent, I don’t think we would have made it past the audition stage."

But the band who are most famous for their classic album Dark Side of the Moon had remarkable success and are still a major influence in rock music today. Especially with the memorable solos and tone of David Gilmour – a tone which has been lusted after by guitarists aplenty.

And they have now been given a helping hand with the GHS Boomers David Gilmour signature strings .
