By 1966, heavily under the influence LSD and Barrett, the group began to incorporate light shows to add to the psychedelic effect of their live performances. In 1967 they signed with EMI records and released The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. It is considered to be one of the best British psychedelic albums, second only to The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band album. Sadly they would never even have a chance to recreate a similar masterpiece, solely because Barrett’s involvement in the band was in its final stages. They tried to work out an arrangement where newly hired guitarist and close friend David Gilmour would perform live with the band while Barrett would make his contributions in the studio. This didn’t work. Syd Barrett left the group to pursue a solo career. The band decided to continue on without Barrett and Waters stepped in as the dominant composer and writer. Using Barrett’s vision as an obvious blueprint, but adding a more formal, somber, and quasi-classical tone, their 1968 follow-up A Saucerful of Secrets, made the British Top Ten and proved the band was to continue on. For the next four years they would work on their sound, keeping it within the range of psychedlia, but reaching out to the uses experimental rock, and using such instruments as organs and horns. They continued on in their journey of rock history with such classics as Ummagumma and Atom Heart Mother, but never reaching that same plateau as they did with their debut. Nothing, however, prepared Pink Floyd or their audience for the massive mainstream success of their 1973 album, Dark Side of the Moon, which made their brand of cosmic rock even more approachable with state-of-the-art production, more focused songwriting, an army of well-timed stereophonic sound
When it comes to being influenced by others, very few musicians can discount Pink Floyd. From their wide use of experimental sounds and lights to jet propelling the idea of a concept record into popular writing, Pink Floyd has had a significant impact on the musical world.
Pink Floyd was one of the first bands to use lights during their live sets. The lights were almost a show in and of themselves. They helped to give a setting to the sound. The atmosphere obtained through this conveyed the emotion…
Pink Floyd’s album The Wall influenced a great change in the music industries from the 1980s to today within America. The album released on Nov. 30, 1979, the live concert preformed in 1980 through 1981, and the movie released in 1982 gave the foundation to the 1980’s American music scene to the present music scene. The album The Wall brought back a vibe of psychedelics from the 1960s but gave a twist of hard rock from transitioning electronics to guitars. The concert for The Wall was the first live…
a cd or copy a song. An example, which was used in this video, was a company used a song from Pink Floyd for the company’s internal training video for their employees. The company did not get a signed release from Pink Floyd stating they could use the song in their video. If the video was ever sold to another company or made public then the company would and could be sued for illegal use by Pink Floyd.

Another "Monster of Rock" was the more extravagant Pink Floyd. Pink Floyd started out as a group that sounded similar to the Beatles but with more psychedelic topics. The band changed after their drug-doomed lead guitarist and Singer Syd Barrett was institutionalized, and gained guitarist David Gilmour, who recorded with the band on their groundbreaking album Dark Side of the Moon. Pink Floyd touched audiences with deep thought provoking lyrics, melodic tones, and intensely…

Rosie Cruz: Surfer Extraordinaire
With a positive attitude and an air of confidence that is hard not to notice, Rosaline Mary Cruz, who prefers “Rosie,” is easy to focus on as the subject of my interview. Tall with brown hair and a matching tan, she easily fits in as a Miramonte student. She looks like she could be comfortable almost anywhere, as her experiences and travels certainly prove.
When I ask about her thoughts on Miramonte, she says, “It makes me feel like a more independent…
Music has been around for thousands and thousands of years. The caveman had originally started some type of sounds in which branched off into the music that we listen to today. This prehistoric music was started by the cavemen in order for them to express themselves, and the others who listened were affected in the same way that people are affected by music today.
For example, if someone is upset they will listen to something that will get them into a better mood, perhaps something mellow or soft…

Madonna and Don Mclean sang about “the day the music died.” While music hasn’t died, it has certain changed. Music has been commercialized, and it has become quite the profitable business. Gone are the days of artistic expression. They’ve given way to the era of the bottom dollar. This music industry is dominated by men. The artists, managers, and executives are all mostly males. They target other males as their primary consumers, and everything revolves around that fact. The easiest way…
