Pigs Might Fly: The Inside Story of Pink Floyd by Mark Blake (2013 edition)Five years ago yesterday, Mark Blake's excellent book Pigs Might Fly: The Inside Story of Pink Floyd (known as Comfortably Numb in the US) was published.

Drawing on his own interviews with all of the band members, plus almost a hundred new interviews with the group's friends, road crew, producers, designers, former housemates and university colleagues, the book is from our perspective, a superb, incredibly detailed, and essential look at the band's history. Our review of the original edition here.

For those who haven't yet partaken of this printed treat, or who love the book but wish it was a bit more current, some good news. A new edition of the book is in the works, which is expected to arrive on or around March 2013. With an additional chapter detailing their more recent activities, additional interview material, and various amendments throughout the book, the new edition should prove an indispensable addition to your bookshelves. The cover image to the right is a temporary one; Mark tells us that a new cover is in the works.

More information on this book will be along as soon as we have it; in the meantime, if you want to secure your copy now, pre-orders are being taken at: Amazon UK,,, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Espana and Amazon Italy. Amazon have a pre-order price guarantee, so order it now, and you'll pay the lowest price they've advertised it at, between now and the date of release.
