The Fandom had some technical problems Sunday involving a failing hard drive. Some files were lost, as many users may notice (broken images, etc.). I'm working on recovering these, but please bear with us for the time being. There may also be some downtime this weekend for a hard drive swap, and we'll try to make that as brief as possible.
Thanks for sticking with us!
New compilation album(s) for Roger
Posted by pulse on Mar 12, 2002
Sony has confirmed plans to release a compilation album of Roger Waters' solo career entitled, "Flickering Flame - The Solo Years Volume 1." Considering the title, there may be subsequent volumes to follow. Volume 1 will be released during the month of April in Australia, Japan (offers a track listing), and Europe. According to REG, the compilation is a "collectors limited edition album compiled issued and relased to support the tour," and will be removed from the Sony Music Catalog on December 1st, 2002. This explains the exclusive release only to countries visited by the 2002 tour. Plans do NOT exist for a North American release, therefore fans residing there who are interested in the compilation(s) will have to purchase the material from abroad or as an import.

Glastonbury Festival Concert Rumour
Posted by madhack on Jan 28, 2002
Rumours have been flying (and we've gotten several emails here) that Pink Floyd will be playing at the Glastonbury Festival in England this coming June. This rumour, however, seems to have no truth to it, although it is possible that Roger Waters will play a role. Time will tell, and the band's fans these days can't help but be hopeful, but at the moment the odds of a Floyd show are slim at best.

Posted by pulse on Nov 13, 2001
It appears Sony is preparing to release the much anticipated video of Roger Waters "In the Flesh" 2000 tour on DVD and VHS formats. There has been no official press release by Sony, so no word as to whether or not it will include the same footage used in the 1 hour broadcast on Music Choice back in February of this year. You can preorder your copy here at CDNow, who has the release schedule for Dec. 18th. Just in time for Christmas!
Concerning Pink Floyd and future touring plans...
Posted by pulse on Nov 12, 2001
There are currently no future plans for Pink Floyd to tour together or as a group under this name again. Their recent comments are not very positive for fans wishing this to materialize. I myself think any future activities from the Pink Floyd camp may only involve unreleased and rehashed older material, or revisioned/remastered formats of previously released albums and videos. But I lack confidence we will ever see the band touring the world again or creating new music together as Pink Floyd like we last observed in 1994.
However, this does not mean we can no longer enjoy them. The catalog Pink Floyd created is enormous and we still have their solo careers to follow, which are once again becoming very active! Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Richard Wright have all stated in their own words recently they are working on new material! Please keep in mind the past and current members, Roger Waters and David Gilmour do have plans to solo tour in 2002 and release new solo material you may be interested in checking out.
