Pink Floyd one of the most controversial bands of all time Stand-off between the members has prevented anything being written - until now The first and only 'authorised' inside story of the band
Nick Mason was a founder member of Pink Floyd as drummer/percussionist. He is the only member of the band to survive from its foundation and has played on every Pink Floyd album. He has produced music for TV commercials and played and produced several albums for other bands. His solo album NICK MASON'S FICTICIOUS SPORTS was released in 1981. His other passion is motor cars and he has taken part in the Le Mans 24-hour race. For years he has accumulated images and memorabilia associated with the band with a view to writing their definitive history.
INSIDE OUT is a winner... glossy and colourful * NEW STATESMAN * ...one of the greatest stories in the pantheon or rock. The production values of the book reflect those of the Floyd themselves: solid, lavish, heavy, beautifully bound and illustrated... Everything about the design of the book ... has been executed with the utmost care... Even the picture captions have been sculpted into precise, informative and often amusing nuggets of information... [Mason] has a measured uncluttered style which he leavens with a dry, original wit. -- David Sinclair * THE GUARDIAN * ... the compelling Pink Floyd soap opera, capably chronicled in drummer Nick Mason's recently published coffee-table memoir Inside Out. In prose that is both self-deprecating and insightful, he grapples with subjects that have often been off-limits... -- John Harris * THE GUARDIAN * the author's engaging wit.... it's always readable -- Dominic Maxwell * TIME OUT * highly-readable, delightfully illustrated book * Sunday Times * As charmingly English as Pimms and heatstroke on a balmy summer's day, few Pink Floyd fans will want to miss out on this. * Q magazine Pink Floyd special edition *
