The Soldier's Tale
Nice recognition for Gilmour
Posted by pulse on Feb 2, 2001
After the realization that mainstream companies of our pop culture and media hyped society like VH1/MTV have little love for the band who would never "sell out" to their requests and demands for their unwarranted hype machine, it has appeared they will never give current and former Pink Floyd members their due. Gilmour has been left off their "20 Greatest Guitarists Countdown," as has Roger Waters on their "Greatest Songwriters Countdown." Their absences on lists that almost any credible musical historian of Rock 'n Roll would notice and question. But it's nice to see REAL fans of a particular genre give credit where credit is due. In a popular site for guitar enthusiasts, fans have voted Gilmour from a large list including names like Clapton, Page, and Hendrix as the Champion of the Guitar Survivor Series. Enjoy!

2000, 'Around Thanksgiving,' we were told. Speaking of both the album and video our contact
said, 'We're working on them furiously at this moment.' The DVD will be the complete show of the

Pink Floyd Album and Tour Speculation
Posted by pulse on Aug 8, 2000
UPDATE: The following information was proven INACCURATE/FALSE according to the gentleman who first made claims of a new tour and new album in 2001 on the website "A Fleeting Glimpse."
Here is the link: NO NEW TOUR NEW ALBUM
Notice: Before you freak out over the contents of this post, first and foremost understand that I do NOT like posting anything I view as a rumor on this page. What you are about to read should ONLY be viewed as a rumor, so take this as a grain of salt. The reasons why are obvious. I am not familiar with this individual or his sources, but this seemed like such an exciting read I felt our readers should see for themselves. Obviously, if this turns out to be bogus, understand we are in no way affiliated with this individual or his site. Now... onto the gravy...
According to this gentleman's source, Pink Floyd will be back in the studio this Fall to start working on their new album under an EMI label. Work is to begin September/October and will conclude for a release next Spring followed by what is insinuated as the most extravagant Pink Floyd tour yet, maybe even the last. Here are the remaining details.
NEW TOUR NEW ALBUM
