Perhaps Britian's finest psychedelic son, Pink Floyd became one of the world's premier rock bands by the end of the Seventies. Originally founded by acid casualty Syd Barrett, the Floyd rose to the top of the British Underground scene before guitarist Gilmour replaced an unpredictable Barret. However their extended instrumental jams, garnered further success, best trademarked by Gilmour's guitar and Water's songwriting. After the monumental "Dark Side Of The Moon" in 1973, the band released two more classics before the Water's-dominated "The Wall" in 1979, and eventual decay in the Eighties.
