Product description
Synopsis
Saucerful of Secretsis the first in-depth biography of this very private group. At the heart of the saga is Syd Barrett, the group's brilliant founder, whose public decline into shattered incoherence--attributable in part to his marathon use of LSD--is one of the tragedies of rock history. The making of Dark Side of the Moonand Floyd's other great albums is recounted in detail, as are the mounting of "The Wall" and the creation of the flying pigs, crashing planes, "Mr. Screen" and the other elements of their spectacular stage shows. The book also explores the many battles between bass player/song writer Roger Waters and the rest of the group, leading up to Water's acrimonious departure for a solo career in 1984 and his unsuccessful attempt to disolve the group he had left behind. Saucerful of Secretsis an electrifying account of this ground-breaking, mind-bending group, covering every period of their career from earliest days to latest recordings. It is full of revealing information that will be treasured by all who love Pink Floyd's music.

Superb!

Schaffner's chronicle of the Floyd is insightful and well-written. He brilliantly evokes the "Swinging London" of the late '60s that gave rise to the band, then dutifully follows the Floyd into the '70s and '80s with equal relish and attention to detail. Album by album, Schaffner makes the reader feel as if he or she is right there in the studio, watching as history is committed to tape. There is only one edition of this book; sadly, Schaffner died in 1991, and as such the book lacks anything about late-period Floyd tours and recordings. Otherwise, Saucerful of Secrets is a flawless rock-n-roll biography of a band with many faces and facets.

Pink Floyd / Saucer full of secrets.

If you only buy 1 book about Pink Floyd,..This is the one! I've read 4 others and this is the best & most informative. Covers the post Syd Barrett years. Great Book!

Great book. Explains all the unknown secrets of Pink Floyd, from their fame and downfall. Also, from their late but great member Syd Barret!
