Music writer Richard Houghton has sent us an email in and has asked for fans of Pink Floyd to get in touch to help him write a people’s history of the group. Richard – who has already compiled similar books about The Beatles, The Who and the Rolling Stones – is trying to tell the story of Pink Floyd in the words of fans who were there. He is looking to hear from fans of the band from any era, but is particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw them in the Sixties or Seventies.
Richard said: ‘I’m hoping to tell the band’s story in a slightly different way, to create an oral history of Pink Floyd. I’ve collected over a hundred stories so far, including some great Syd era memories, but I’d like to hear from anyone who’s seen the band. I’m interested in what people remember of the first show they saw but also how they became a Floyd fan and what their favourite album or track is.’
Richard’s book, entitled Pink Floyd – I Was There, is scheduled for publication by Red Planet Books in Spring 2018.
