Pink Floyd Magiciens, alchimistes et milliardairesOctober 1st, 2009, sees the publication in France of new book "Pink Floyd Magiciens, alchimistes et milliardaires" [which translates as "Magicians, Alchemists and Billionaires"; click thumbnail to the left to see cover] by author Jean-Michel Oullion. Oullion is a respected music biographer, having written histories of Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen and Moby, and is a self-confessed big fan of Pink Floyd.

The book, written in French, is said to give a full retrospective of the Pink Floyd saga, detailed analysis of all the band's albums and solo excusions, and looks at many of the key personnel who have been instrumental in their story. It also covers some of the trivia relating to the band, such as the asteroid named after them, and the circumstance of the band being banned for life from London's Royal Albert Hall after letting off a cannon during "A Saucerful of Secrets".

More information on this title as we get it; in the meantime, it can be preordered from Amazon France and Amazon Canada. Our thanks to Ddondestan for the info.
