Comfortably Numb: The Inside Story of Pink Floyd, Mark Blake

A very journalistic look at the evolution and dissolution of Pink Floyd, which made for a rather stiff though informative read.

Blake’s  narrative arc begins just before the band’s brief reunion with Roger Waters for Live Aid 8 in 2005, then zips back in time to the birth and Cambridge upbringing of the group’s five defining members including Syd Barrett. A progression as lumbering as the beast David Gilmour compared Pink Floyd to follows, circling over the course of almost 400 pages back to Live 8, and ending with the brief coda of a near Floyd/Waters reunion at the memorial concert honoring Syd Barrett.
