LogoPink Floyd and Roger Waters news from the worlds most respected Pink Floyd/Roger Waters site. Features the latest OFFICIAL news, pictures, reviews, interviews, lyrics, forum, links, and so much more.Now in its 18th 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 Pink 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?

David Gilmour Covers The Beatles For MOJO Some two years ago, David Gilmour sent MOJO a cover version of The Beatles’ Here, There And Everywhere. They enjoyed his reworking of the Beatles so much that they wanted to share it and after a spot of cajoling David finally agreed to let MOJO include it on free CD. “I really wish I had been in The Beatles,” David told MOJO of the genesis behind his cover. “[They] taught me how to play guitar, I learnt everything. The bass parts, the lead, the rhythm, everything. They were fantastic.” That love is manifested on the wonderful harmony-filled cover of the 1966 Revolver original recorded with his son Joe. Previously unreleased anywhere. A number of Gilmour’s closest collaborators appear on the compilation, while David is featured on six of the tracks himself, including songs from Phil Manzanera, Robert Wyatt and The Pretty Things. The CD is accompanied by a major new interview with David, which saw MOJO’s Tom Doyle visit him at his home, a very appropriate venue considering his forthcoming album. This special MOJO edition is on sale in the UK from Tuesday (August 25) or can be ordered online.

Rattle That Lock - Tour Rooms Open We have been holding off opening our Tour Rooms, as we had hoped that the new AFG site would be ready by the time the tour kicked off.

We have also set aside a dedicated page that covers the Album in detail. Now we looking for YOUR input. Do you have your David Gilmour Tour Tickets yet? If so, can you please scan them and send them to col@pinkfloydz.com so that we can share them with everybody? (No more than 2 tickets per page please).

Snippets There's a really great article on Roger Waters where it's said "He’s in the process of writing an autobiography, played at the Newport Folk Festival last week, and plans to go on another world tour next year." The article is online at http://www.haaretz.com/ but it's behind a pay wall. Of a similar mind is David Gilmour, when he said recently that he thought he had another album in him.

Keep The Flag Flying Regular visitors to this site will recall that on many of Roger Waters recent tours, a makeshift AFG Banner has been flown by our good friend Joaquim Arnês Filho. The banner has been seen around the world many times, however Joaquim decided that it needed replacing with an official AFG one and set to work about organising it. Now thanks to Greg Hampton, Joaquim has just had his banner delivered to him in Brazil. Pictured below is Joaquim (Grey hair to the right) and his family & friends celebrating the arrival of their new banner.
