They definitely went up from this!
Pink Floyd are one of the most legendary bands in the history of rock n’ roll. They are the pioneers of psychedelic rock, and changed rock music forever. Their music has outlasted generations, but not every song they wrote made the cut, or appealed to the originators.
In this clip from a newly released documentary included in their box set The Early Years 1965-1972, you can see that the band used to hate on their early work. In the clip, manager Steve O’Rourke, Richard Wright, Nick Mason, David Gilmour and Roger Waters listen to an old bootleg from an unnamed Pink Floyd LP. After the bootleg, Sean turns to the man who played it, and proclaims it’s “disgusting.” He continues on saying that the song would sound much better as a live version, and he’s glad it wasn’t released.
Fun Fact: Roger Waters met Nick Mason at the London Polytechnic when they were both studying architecture.
