Features the latest OFFICIAL news, pictures, reviews, interviews, lyrics, forum, links, and so much more.Now in its 17th big year, Pink Floyd A Fleeting Glimpse continues to attract new audiences. The site is widely acknowledged as a great source for Floyd news and has picked up a massive cult following over the years. (We passed the 50 Million visitor mark way back in Nov 2012!) A Fleeting Glimpse (Or AFG as its become known) is used by a cross section of the Floyd/Waters online community, including new fans & crusty old fossils, who spend all their life researching Floyd. I fit into the latter category by the way, having been a Floyd fan since 1966. My name is Col Turner, and I run this site on behalf of fans all over the planet. Without your contributions the site could not exist. If you have anything Floyd related that you think may be of interest, drop us a line (col@pinkfloydz.com)  Don't forget, in the best Pink Floyd tradition, there are several hidden links on this site, can you find them?

RIP John “Hoppy” Hopkins It is with profound regret that we have to pass on the news of 'Hoppy's' passing. John “Hoppy” Hopkins is a name familiar to many Pink Floyd fans, and indeed, we should be truly grateful for the role that he played in the band’s days as the darlings of the London psychedelic scene. Hoppy was the man behind the London Free School, and a subsequent fundraiser event in 1966, which was headlined by Pink Floyd. When Hoppy and Joe Boyd went on to set up the UFO club later that year, the Floyd was the natural choice for house band. As well as this, Hoppy also co-founded counter culture magazine International Times (the launch party for which was held at the Roundhouse, and had Pink Floyd as the evening’s entertainment), and was a photographer for such publications as Melody Maker, The Times and Peace News. He was a true visionary and will be deeply missed . RIP Hoppy.
 
Spotted! Guess who was spotted at Brighton (UK) Railway Station on Tuesday (27th Jan). Whilst we are on the subject of David Gilmour, we can now confirm that Jon Carin is definitely on David's new album and that Jon's contribution has already been recorded.

Let's Consult The Crystal Ball We are going to try to peer into the future to see what 2015 will bring for Pink Floyd & Roger Waters fans. Let's start with Roger. We are hoping the the long delayed Amused To Death release in SACD 5.1 will surface sometime before July. The Wall on Broadway is progressing along but if it will commence in 2015 is anybody's guess! The never ending story about Roger's new album is also up in the air, although Roger seems to be making some progress in that direction. The Wall DVD is also still a mystery, will it get a theatrical release or maybe a Blu-ray or DVD version? Let's keep hoping. The Wall 1980/81 footage seems a long shot but there is also hope, but don't hold your breath. David Gilmour - Yes, a new album is on it's way and most probably a tour (although that might spill over into 2016). On the Pink Floyd front, we understand that Nick is still working on the long awaited Pink Floyd Anthology, so that seems promising. So that's a quick fleeting glimpse into the future. Keep following us to see if any or all of this comes true.
 
The Final Cut - Book & Album Regular visitors would have read our information about The Final Cut book, that we published back in early November 2014. We can now advise that the book is fully subscribed. However, there is some good news, with a limited edition reprint of it expected in late 2015. We have been fortunate enough to have received a really great review of the book from professional author Julie Skaggs which can now be viewed. In addition to this, Julie has written an in-depth essay about The Final Cut album which is also Now Available. Fans of The Final Cut should not miss these two wonderful pieces of literature.
 
Remember When? Back on 12 November 2013 some lucky fans got to see Roger Waters participate in a 2 hour interview with Bill Weir at the McKittrick Hotel New York. (see story) The interview was filmed in front of an audience of only 100 people and Roger spoke about Syd Barrett, Roger's father, his new album, his wife leaving him after Dark Side Of The Moon, the upcoming Amused To Death release in SACD 5.1, The Wall tour and The Wall DVD. The interview was supposed to go to air on PBS in April 2014 but for some reason it was delayed. Now the good news is the interview is scheduled to be broadcast by WTTW and OPB TV (and possibly others - check local listings). You can find the WTTW schedule at schedule.wttw.com/ and the OPB TV schedule at opb.org/television
