New book about Pink Floyd: Live At Pompeii on the cards Print E-mail

On the Brink of Ruin: The Story of Pink Floyd Live At PompeiiThe Making of Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii is a new book currently being worked on by Sam Sleiman.

The full story of how this film came to be has never been told… but that could be about to change. For the past three years Sam has been researching the film, trying to piece together a comprehensive and definitive documentation of its history. Numerous interviews have already been conducted, and a significant amount of material has been gathered for the book.

Although Adrian and the Floyd have occasionally shared anecdotes about the film, there are still plenty of other people who worked on it and whose stories have yet to be heard. Should sufficient funding be provided for the book to be completed, the intention is that this will be a lavish coffee table book, featuring numerous never-before-seen photos, as well as ads and related publicity from the film's subsequent theatrical releases. Jacques Boumendil, one of the camera operators for the Pompeii shoot, took an impressive amount of exceptional photos that have never been shared or published since they were developed. If funding for the project is a success, the book will be available by June 2014 as a hardcover and e-Book purchase. [As a sidenote, the title has changed ever so slightly since the original story was posted.]

Sam is seeking funds through an Indiegogo page, to help pay for things like licensing images, design, translation and editing costs, and covering the costs of the initial print run. Contributors will receive a range of benefits depending on how much they put toward the project...
