When the music impresario Bryan Morrison died aged 66 in 2008, after two years
in a coma following a polo accident, he left behind his unpublished memoir. As a
music publisher, manager and agent, Morrison had represented the Pretty Things,
Pink Floyd, T. Rex, The Jam, Wham! and many others. He was also the founder and
owner of the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club.
In this candid and outspoken book, Morrison reveals the true stories behind why
Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd once bit his finger to the bone, the Pretty Things were
banned for life from New Zealand, and he became involved with the Kray Twins.
He also tells how The Jam kissed goodbye to success in the USA, he received death
threats when Robin Gibb left the Bee Gees, and signing a publishing deal with
George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley as Wham!
Spanning the golden age of British rock ’n’ roll from the 60s to the 80s, this is the
extraordinary story of a cigar-chomping, East End entrepreneur, with a passion for
art and design, fashion, music and polo.
Keep an eye out for some AFG impressions and a review in the coming weeks.
At the end of September Richard Thompson hosted his 70th Birthday Celebration Concert at the Royal Albert Hall. The concert included a bevy of musical guests, including Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour. David performed on two songs, Dimming of the Day and Fat Old Sun, both of which you can watch below.

Following the release of The Early Years 1965-1972 box set in 2016, some keen Floyd fans noticed
issues with their discs and a replacement programme was enacted. Now, in 2019, fans are reporting similar issues, with Blu-ray discs bubbling and discolouring, in some cases leading to discs not playing.
The following has been emailed out to fans who have contacted Pink Floyd regarding this issue.
In 2016 our attention was drawn to a small batch of Blu-ray discs supplied for ‘The Early Years 1965-1972’, which had been subject to unreported transit damage, causing eventual discolouration and playing issues over time.
Now in 2019, we have been advised that a small quantity of the below discs have been affected:
If you have any of the above discs that are experiencing playability issues, please TAKE A PHOTOGRAPH of the condition of the disc (both back and front), state its catalogue number and enclose the photograph with full delivery details, and we will send you a replacement. firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be manufacturing replacement discs on a limited basis based on demand, so please contact us BEFORE JANUARY 01, 2020, in order that your request can be processed. This offer does not affect your statutory rights.
Thank you for your support of Pink Floyd, and please accept our apologies for the inconvenience that this may have caused.
If you are an owner of The Early Years box set I highly recommend you check your Blu-rays ASAP. Please note, this program only covers purchases from within the EU. US buyers are being advised to contact Sony Music.
