Did you know that David Gilmoure’s nickname at school was Fred? Did you know that Syd Barrett reached the sound of the Piper at the Gates of Dawn album by setting all the knobs and buttons at the studio to form an ornament he liked? Did you know that although they both recorded tracks at the same studio, David Gilmoure never met John Lennon in person?

Ezrin, Bob

musician, producer

Bob Ezrin, born 1949 in Ontario, Canada, first met Pink Floyd during the recording of The Wall. By that time all agreed that Waters needed an assistant to produce such a complicated album, someone, who stands apart from the band and is not engaged in its inner problems. Waters asked Bob Ezrin, who was recommended to him by his then wife Carolyne, who used to be Ezrin’s secretary.

Later everyone highly appreciated Ezrin’s work as a producer and manager.
Ezrin also produced Gilmour’s About Face.
When Waters left Pink Floyd, both Waters and Gilmour wanted Ezrin on their team. However, Ezrin remembered the quarrels with Waters that took place when they were preparing The Wall and taking into account that these did not end when the album was released, Ezrin chose to work with Gilmour, to Waters’ discountenance. As usual, Waters chose to give Ezrin a roasting and on Amused To Death he sung “Each man has his price Bob, and yours was pretty low.” Later he stated that he did not mean to reference to Ezrin, but to Bob Dylan, who had refused to work with him as well. Dylan denied that.

Bob Ezrin took part in recording A Momentary Lapse Of Reason and Division Bell. He has also worked with Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel or KISS.

Apart from his work with musicians, Ezrin is also known to be a co-owner of 7th Level, the publisher of a Monty Python CD called Complete Waste Of Time and a children’s CD Tuneland.
