Pink Floyd "best of" Echoes - 2001 big seller Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Sunday, 10 February 2002

Pink Floyd's 'best of' compilation "Echoes" managed to shift quite a significant number of copies last year, making it to the 16th biggest selling album in the world of 2001, despite coming out at the tail end of the year. Billboard have collated sales numbers worldwide; "Echoes" sold 4.8 million copies. Top seller of the year was Dido's "No Angel" with 8.6 million copies...

 
Nick Mason's book about Pink Floyd comes closer to publication Print E-mail

Despite originally due to be published around seven years ago, but blocked, apparently by Mr Gilmour, it seems that Nick's book might finally be seeing the light of day soon. His history of the band was mentioned at the end of a BBC Radio 2 documentary last night as forthcoming... can't wait! I chatted to him about it (and other things) back in November 1994 (see interview elsewhere on this site) and it sounded like the ultimate book about the band...

 
Roger Waters to play Glastonbury Festival? Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Saturday, 02 February 2002

The rumours are still strong that Roger (and note: NOT Pink Floyd, despite what Glastonbury owner Michael Eavis has said to various parts of the press!) will be playing on Sunday June 30th, for an hour, before headliner Rod Stewart(!). Tickets and the confirmed line up have still not been confirmed, although it seems likely that you will need a weekend ticket costing around £100, as Sunday-only tickets will be available just to local residents. As ever, watch this space...

UPDATE, February 10th: There have been many rumours that Nick Mason will be guesting at Glastonbury with Roger - how long for (ie whole show/one song?) is not known. Despite it seeming extremely unlikely, a reconciliation between the two was reported at the end of the second part of the BBC Radio 2 documentary this evening. Curiouser and curiouser!

Thursday, 24 January 2002

"Psychedelic Renegades", Mick Rock's book of Syd Barrett photos, is selling very well. Genesis Publications report that they have around 20 deluxe (signed by Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett) copies left, and that the regular version is also selling very well. Once all copies are sold (and they are printing less than a thousand) that will be it! So be quick if you want one...

Recently, JP Morgan, Billboard and Soundscan have calculated the top US selling artists since 1991. Nestling in tenth place (behind the likes of N Sync, Kenny G and the Backstreet Boys!) is Pink Floyd who have shifted 26.6 million "units" in the US since 1991. At the top of the list are Mariah Carey (40.4 million), The Beatles (42.2) and Garth Brooks (an astonishing 63.9!)
