Posted by madhack on Sep 25, 2002
EMI Music has sent out a bit of promotional material, primarily a preview (QuickTime format) of the new David Gilmour DVD. They've also provided a David Gilmour-themed QuickTime player, in PC and Mac versions. It's nice to see a "new media" promotional push for one of the Floydians...

Ad poll results
Posted by madhack on Jul 12, 2002
The results are in on the ad poll, and it seems that most people want no advertising. However, I fully intend to throw out that 59% because none of the people who voted are those who pay to keep this site going ;). Seriously, don't be surprised if a single small, unobtrusive ad appears below the menu. It won't pop up or pop under and it won't span across the top of the page and I will have approval of all ads, but quite frankly I can't handle the money sink that this page has become for much longer. All I want is to break even. Hopefully this'll allow me to do so.

According to one report of the Wembley (London) show last night, Nick Mason joined Roger on stage and played drums on "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun". I've now had this confirmed by a number of people. What I wouldn't give to have been there...

The Glorious 50
Posted by pulse on Jun 12, 2002
The BBC polled its listeners for their three favourite albums of the last fifty years. Yep, Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon was one of them. The team at BBC 6 Music then collated those three albums into a definitive chart, aptly titled, "THE GLORIOUS 50." You likely won't be shocked to find two other Pink Floyd albums among those fifty. ;-)
