As much as I like Queen, I always go back to Pink Floyd. Brian May and David Gilmour are both great guitarists. Nick Mason and Roger Taylor are the drummers whom get least recognition. John Deacon I compared to Rick Wright, the member of the band that is highly underrated. Freddie was like Syd Barrett then Roger Waters. Roger, like Freddie, was a fellow Virgo but Roger unlike Freddie became an egomaniacal tyrant whom threw people out of PF if they became lazy in his view.

You can make such links to most of bands... "John Lennon was genius and he's dead, Freddie was genius and he's dead too - wow!"

But anyway - Pink Floyd are great, "Dark side of the moon" is one of my fave album ever.

I love Pink Floyd, but I can't really draw the comparison between Freddie and Roger Waters, or even Syd Barrett for that matter. Roger was completely tyrannical, whereas Freddie was always quick to make the point that all four of them were equal to each other. But I can definitely see the comparision between Roger, John, Nick Mason and Rick Wright not getting the attention they deserve for their skills, though Nick and Rick are probably more underrated since Roger and John at least had their top singles.

I prefer Wish You Were Here..

The thing I don't like about their songs is the stuff they do at the start. Take the track Wish You Were Here for example. It's on looooads of the tracks on Dark Side Of The Moon..:(

What do they smoke when they write these songs?


The riff of WYWH came about when David Gilmour played it in the control room at Abbey Road Studio #3 and Roger was impressed that the two wrote the song. Drugs were not part of PF's diet after Syd Barrett went crazy.

The famous infamous Roger`s quote from Q Magazine, November 1992:

"Well, anyway, I am one of the best five writers to come out of English music since the War."
- "Who would rank above you?"
"John Lennon. I'm trying to think... er, I can't think of anybody else. You see, I don't much like listening to records. I'm a bit isolationist and insular. I'd rather be fishing. The list of great writers is very, very short but I am definitely in it. Er, who else is there that's better than me? I really don't know. Freddie Mercury, maybe..."

More quotes like that coming soon in the next Bechstein Debauchery. Keep tuned.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I think they were mean...
They persecuted the keyboard player - didn't let him know when they were recording their albums because they thought he wasn't good! They'ra mean...

well, Floyd and Queen happen to be my two fav bands! There aren't very much in common. Freddie could had become a tiran but he choosed not. He even said he was«not the leader of the band, just the lead vocalist»! Roger is all that you don't want to have in a band.he even stoled songwriting credits of their (ex-)bandmates! Rick and John otherwise have lot in common. They were the quite guys, very underrated. both bands have reformed without their former leaders.

Yeah... Roger Waters was/is very arrogant... however you have to give him credit, he wrote virtually all of Pink Floyd's lyrics (after Syd Barret's going off his tree, of course)

Pink Floyd and Queen are my two favorite bands as well... actually best connection I've found between the two bands is Brian May and David Gilmour. Both posess the two most unique guitar tembres i've ever heard. I consider both amazing by their sheer power to put emotion and feeling into the guitar- almost in a hypnotic way. Of course this is just one of many opinions- some find Gilmour boring...

Anyway, aside from that I fear they really don't have much in common... they were both VERY eccentric, but in different ways.

I love the pink floyd nearly as much as i do queen.the difference though is in the attitudes both bands had towards music. If i feel dark and serious i will listen to the pink floyd and relax knowing i aint the only one who's pissed at the world.If however i am feeling on top of the world ( or want to ), i will go for the good old fashioned, sensory overload, happy ,positive, guitar crunchin' rock n roll that queen (thankfully) gave us.this takes me away from the unending drudgery of life.

The fact that it`s the member of one band mentioning a member of the other. Not a very big deal, but better than nothing

I love Pink Floyd. Too bad Mr Waters wanted all the credit since the wall album


It actually went back to Animals. Roger started shutting Rick Wright out of Pink Floyd hence why Rick did his solo album Wet Dream in 1978 and David Gilmour was shut out of Animals save Dogs and put out a solo effort of his own in 1978.

I meant just the start of it where the people are talking....and all those tracks on DSOTM...


Roger came up with the idea at a band meeting at drummer Nick Mason's kitchen about using human voices as segues on the songs. Paul and Linda McCartney actually took part but were unusable so their guitarist in Wings Henry McCullough replied to a question about getting angry with "I don't know I was really drunk at the time".

Didn't he also have an uncredited hand in writing 'Sheep'?

Yep. David Claims to write 70% of the music on Sheep. But it is not the only ting. ABITWpt2,Hey You, Is there anybody out there and other seems to have other songwriters that just Roger(David, producer Bob Ezrin,etc..)!

Yes Roger did say that. The quote sounds a little big-headed, but it`s quite right as well. Anyway, imo, there`s no way Fred ranks higher than Roger in songwritting.
