One of the most popular rock groups of the 1970s, Pink Floyd achieved superstar status despite being routinely experimental and often downright bizarre. Indeed the group have proven an enormous influence on numerous contemporary bands - stand up Muse, Radiohead, Linkin Park and 100 others - and remain a wholly credible name to drop more than 30 years since Punk Rock was supposed to have killed off their kind of 'progressive nonsense'. This film traces the path Floyd took after the recording of the Animals album - an era when cracks in the band first started to show - and brings the strange story of the group and the intense relationship between Waters and Gilmour right up to date with the unexpected collaboration of these two maverick musicians at a 2010 charity event. Featuring numerous interviews with Waters, Gilmour, Wright & Mason, liberally interspersed with classic and rare performance footage, plus contributions from friends, colleagues and the finest rock journalists.
This documentary charts the final years of the rock band Pink Floyd, after the release of Animals. Archival footage and a number of interviews paint a picture of the relationship breakdown between Roger Waters and David Gilmour.
