Did you know that in the Live At Pompeii video after the band play One of These Days, they can be seen drinking Czech Pilsner Urquell beer? Did you know that Pink Floyd are named after two bluesmen from Georgia, USA? Their names were Pink Anderson and Floyd Council. Did you know that in 1967 Pink Floyd were recording Piper At The Gates Of Dawn at Abbey Road studios almost simultaneously with The Beatles, who were working on Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band?

note:

Considered not quite the top musically, but lyrically very strong, anti-war and humanist oriented. There is no doubt that the album features songs that didn't fit in The Wall. Originally, it was meant to be an OST to The Wall film, but then the band decided to make it an album.
There is an inscription on the cover which reads: requiem for post war dream by Roger Waters, performed by Pink Floyd. Right under that: Pink Floyd are: Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason. Rick Wright did not take part in the recording and was not a member of the band at the time. Nick Mason in his own words just “drummed what he had to.” Only Gilmour was permitted to take part by recording a few short solos.
The last song did not even feature Mason, but Andy Newmark, on the drums. The recording of The Final Cut meant the definitive dissolution of Pink Floyd.
