Inside Out – A Personal History of Pink Floyd – Nick Mason – Audio Book

Inside Out – A Personal History of Pink Floyd – Nick Mason : Pink Floyd is one of the most creative, successful and enduring bands of all time. Nick Mason’s Inside Out marks the first time that a Pink Floyd member has set down his Individual version of their story. “Of course, ” he says, “everyone has divergent views of what actually happened. I’ve tried to be honest about disasters and triumphs, and not to take all the credit – though I’ve been delighted to share out any blame.”

As the only constant member throughout the 40 years of the Floyd’s existence, Nick has been able to observe every phase of their career from his drum stool, including their time as the darlings of London’s late-1960s underground; the deterioration and departure of Syd Barrett; the huge worldwide success of The Dark Side Of The Moon , one of the bestselling albums ever; the rift with Roger Waters ; and the subsequent decision by Nick and David Gilmour to put their reputations on the line and continue as Pink Floyd

‘Anything but a hymn of praise to the mighty Floyd. Mason’s drummer’s tale is unstintingly and amusingly disrespectful about the band’ – The Sunday Times

‘As charmingly English as Pimm’s and heatstroke on a balmy summer’s day’ – Q magazine

‘Rock’s little drummer boy grows up into a sex cymbal. With a wit drier than an AA clinic, and a charm more disarming than a UN peace-keeping force, Nick Mason gives us a literary drum solo par excellence’ – Kathy Lette

Nick Mason is the only member of Pink Floyd to have played on every album they recorded. He’s also the first band member to put pen to paper and write about their time together.It’s onderfully written. This book exudes personality from every page. If you are into dry humour and itty observation then this book is definitely for you.
