Hello David! I'm Madi. Sadly, Pink (rugby) Floyd is not my generations inspiration. However, I admire the band and consider them one of the best. Perhaps you can enlighten me about them. I'm one of those people who can't name the group or song on the radio, but I want to. :)

mothers a great song. I like the wall movie too. I like the scene they play for that song. dark sides a great album. the hand drums are real nice - not something i find on alot of rock albums. i met i guy once who could play just like dave, as i like to call him. we were about 18 and he was playing amazing songs from dark side.

Hi guys... I just joined the "Floyd" group because I like that group and a few other proggy artists, most notably King Crimson (esp. 1980-on, including spinoffs). I wonder if Adrian Belew is a notable influence on Matt's guitar style; both are really into distortion and whammy bars, and sometimes I pick up a strong Belew-ish vibe in Matt's playing or some stage movement or gesture. But AFAIK Bellamy has never acknowledged Belew as an influence, and he's been forthright about so many others...

 

I did catch a short set by Spock's Beard (the new- or nu-prog group) inadvertently at Vintage Vinyl a couple of years ago. I was simply there to comb through the stacks, and an in-store gig happened to break out! They were alright, but nothing really grabbed me, and there were at least a couple of tracks that I simply didn't care for.

 

I have a long, long way to go, though, before I'll be anyone's idea of a devoted prog-rock fan or expert on the subject.
