Pink Floyd: Giants of Rock book by Glenn PoveyPublished on March 3rd by Carlton Books is 'Pink Floyd: Giants of Rock'. Written by Glenn Povey, it is an updated and expanded version of 'Treasures of Pink Floyd' which appeared in late 2012. Glenn was the creator of Brain Damage magazine (the forerunner to this website) and author of essential books such as In The Flesh and Echoes.

'Treasures...' told the band's history with words, pictures and facsimile memorabilia. The book recounted every decade of the band's existence and every album they recorded, contained profiles of all five members and discussed the significant influence they had on music and culture across the world. We saw 'Treasures...' as a great companion piece to 'Echoes', expanding on some of the more visual content that 'Echoes' has alongside the concert listings and other detail. It's also an ideal book for the Floyd novice, hungry for more information on the band and its music.

This celebration of the visual side of Pink Floyd - a band for whom the visual aspect has always been a vital element of their being - has been expanded and updated with 'Pink Floyd: Giants of Rock', which brings the story up to date. There's no pull-out memorabilia in this edition, but despite this small change, the new edition should prove a great addition to your Floydian bookshelf.

You can preorder the book now, through the following direct links: Amazon UK,, Amazon Canada, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain and Amazon Italy.
