Pink Floyd are undeniably the most influential rock band of the past 40-odd years. That fact can be perceived simply by looking at the numbers.
They are on the exclusive list of music artists who have sold more than 250 million records (by 2013), and each of their albums has enjoyed multi-Platinum, Gold or Diamond statuses.
David Gilmour has been the voice and guitar of Pink Floyd since 1968, and has stood the test of time as one of the genre’s most influential musicians that ever existed. Without him, Pink Floyd certainly wouldn’t be what it is today- an institution that schooled thousands of bands and artists over the past, almost half century.
