    Band-members, Musicians and Performers
  • David Gilmour – Lead Guitar

    David Gilmour (Full-name: David Jon Gilmour) is an English musician, singer, and songwriter, best known as the guitarist, co-lead vocalist and one of the main songwriters of the rock band Pink Floyd. He was born on 6 March 1946, in Cambridge, England.

    Gilmour began playing guitar at a young age and formed his first band, Jokers Wild, in 1962. He later joined the band Bullitt, which also included future Pink Floyd member, Roger Waters. In 1968, he was invited to join Pink Floyd as a replacement for the band's original lead vocalist and guitarist, Syd Barrett, who had become increasingly unreliable due to his use of psychedelic drugs.


    Gilmour quickly established himself as an integral member of Pink Floyd, contributing to the band's songwriting and providing lead vocals on many of their songs. He played an important role in the band's success, particularly with the release of their critically acclaimed and commercially successful album "The Dark Side of the Moon" (1973), "Wish You Were Here" (1975) and "The Wall" (1979)

    In addition to his work with Pink Floyd, Gilmour has also released several solo albums, including "David Gilmour" (1978), "About Face" (1984), "On an Island" (2006), "Rattle That Lock" (2015) and "No One Home" (2020)

    Throughout his career, Gilmour has been recognized as one of the greatest guitar players of all time and has been awarded with numerous accolades, including several Ivor Novello Awards, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Pink Floyd in 1996. He continues to perform and record music, and remains an influential figure in the music industry

    He is the first child of Douglas Gilmour and Sylvia Wilson.

    On 7 July 1975, he married Virginia "Ginger", Hasenbein. He married Polly Samson in 1994. He was 29 years old when he married Virginia "Ginger", Hasenbein. He was 48 years old when he married Polly Samson. He got divorced from Virginia "Ginger", Hasenbein around 1994.

  • Roger Waters – Lead And Harmony Vocals, Guitars

    George Roger Waters, known by his stage name Roger Waters, was born on 6 September 1943 in Great Bookham, Surrey, England. He grew up in a musical family, with his father Eric Fletcher Waters being a schoolteacher and a talented pianist. Waters developed a passion for music at an early age, learning to play the piano and the clarinet.

    In his teenage years, Waters discovered rock and roll music, which ignited his desire to pursue a career in the industry. He formed his first band, The Abdabs, in 1962 while attending Regent Street Polytechnic (now the University of Westminster) in London. The Abdabs later evolved into Sigma 6 and eventually became Pink Floyd in 1965, with Waters on bass guitar and vocals.

    As a founding member of Pink Floyd, Waters played a pivotal role in shaping the band's sound and artistic direction. He quickly established himself as the primary lyricist and conceptual leader of the group. Waters' introspective and thought-provoking lyrics became a signature element of Pink Floyd's music, exploring themes of alienation, politics, and human nature.


    Throughout his tenure with Pink Floyd, Waters penned many of the band's most iconic songs, including "The Wall", "Wish You Were Here", "Another Brick in the Wall", and "Money". His creative vision and innovative ideas led to the production of several groundbreaking albums, such as "The Dark Side of the Moon" (1973), "Wish You Were Here" (1975), and "The Wall" (1979), which are considered timeless classics in the realm of rock music.

    Waters' contributions extended beyond his songwriting abilities. He also provided lead vocals on numerous Pink Floyd tracks and was recognized for his exceptional bass guitar skills. His stage presence and charismatic performances captivated audiences around the world during the band's live shows.

    However, tensions within Pink Floyd began to escalate in the late 1970s, leading to conflicts over creative control and personal differences between the band members. These tensions culminated in Waters' departure from Pink Floyd in 1985, after which the band continued without him.

    Following his departure from Pink Floyd, Waters embarked on a successful solo career. He released his debut solo album, "The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking", in 1984, which was followed by several critically acclaimed albums, including "Radio K.A.O.S" (1987), "Amused to Death" (1992), and "Is This the Life We Really Want?" (2017). Waters' solo work often continued his exploration of sociopolitical issues and personal introspection.

    Apart from his musical pursuits, Waters has been actively involved in various political and social causes. He is known for his advocacy of human rights and has used his platform to raise awareness about global conflicts and injustices. His concerts often incorporate political and social messages, promoting peace and social equality.

    Roger Waters' contributions to music and his influence on rock as a genre are immeasurable. His introspective songwriting, powerful vocals, and willingness to tackle complex subjects have earned him a dedicated fan base worldwide. Despite the challenges he faced throughout his career, Waters continues to be a prolific artist and an influential figure in the music industry.

  • Nick Mason – Drums, Percussion
  • Richard Wright - Keyboards

    Rick Wright, born on 28 July 1943, was an English musician and songwriter best known as a founding member and keyboardist of the progressive rock band Pink Floyd. He made significant contributions to the band's sound with his skillful playing of the piano, organ, mellotron, vibraphone, and his occasional vocal performances. Wright's musical talent and innovative approach to keyboards played a crucial role in shaping Pink Floyd's unique sound.

    Richard William Wright was born in Hatch End, Middlesex, England. His passion for music developed at a young age, and he began playing the piano at the age of seven. Wright's formal music education began at the Regent Street Polytechnic in London, where he studied architecture. It was during this time that he met future Pink Floyd members Roger Waters and Nick Mason. The trio formed several bands together, ultimately leading to the creation of Pink Floyd in 1965, with the addition of Syd Barrett.

    Wright's keyboard skills and melodic sensibilities became an integral part of Pink Floyd's sound. He was known for his ability to create atmospheric textures and intricate arrangements that complemented the band's progressive and psychedelic rock style. Wright's use of the Hammond organ, Mellotron, and later, synthesizers, helped define the band's sonic identity.

    During Pink Floyd's early years, Wright shared songwriting duties with Waters and Barrett, contributing tracks such as "Remember a Day" and "See-Saw". However, as Waters took on a more dominant role in the band's songwriting, Wright's contributions diminished, leading to some tensions within the group. Despite this, Wright remained an essential creative force, particularly in the studio, where his keyboard work added depth and richness to the band's recordings.


    Wright's contributions to Pink Floyd extended beyond his instrumental prowess. He provided backing and occasional lead vocals on several songs, including "Time", "Echoes", and "The Great Gig in the Sky". His soft and haunting voice added a unique touch to the band's repertoire, showcasing his versatility as a musician.

    However, as Pink Floyd's success grew, so did the internal conflicts. Following the release of the album "The Wall" in 1979, tensions within the band reached a breaking point, and Wright left Pink Floyd during the recording of their subsequent album, "The Final Cut". Following his departure, he embarked on a solo career, releasing albums such as "Wet Dream" (1978) and "Broken China" (1996).

    Wright's solo work showcased his talents as a composer and his penchant for atmospheric and introspective music. He continued to explore different musical styles, incorporating elements of jazz and classical music into his compositions. Despite pursuing solo projects, Wright remained closely connected to his Pink Floyd bandmates and made guest appearances on their albums and during their live performances.

    In 1987, Wright officially reunited with Pink Floyd, and the band released the album "A Momentary Lapse of Reason". Wright's return injected new energy into the group and helped recapture some of their earlier magic. He played a significant role in subsequent albums, including "The Division Bell" (1994) and "The Endless River" (2014).

    Rick Wright's contributions to Pink Floyd's legacy cannot be overstated. His keyboard wizardry and musical intuition were vital in creating the band's sonic landscapes and iconic albums. While often overshadowed by the larger-than-life personas of other band members, Wright's quiet and understated presence made an indelible mark on the history of rock music.

    Tragically, Rick Wright passed away on September 15, 2008, after a battle with cancer. His untimely death left a void in the world of music, but his remarkable
    legacy lives on through his timeless contributions to Pink Floyd's discography and the lasting impact he made on the world of progressive rock.
