Mojo issue 327The new issue of the UK's Mojo Magazine (cover date February 2021, issue number 327) includes a major feature on Pink Floyd, within its pages which also include a major retrospective on John Lennon, marking 40 years since he was senselessly shot dead in New York.

The Floyd feature - headlined Burning Bridges: Floyd Wars! and written by Pigs Might Fly author Mark Blake - is a detailed, eight-page look at the conflict between Roger Waters and David Gilmour, and looks at its origins. It is clear that from very early days, there were differences in the pair's behaviours and ethos which even saw David walk out of one of the very first rehearsals he had with the others on joining Pink Floyd in January 1968. As one has come to expect from Blake, it's an entertaining and detailed guide to the fraught working relationship of Roger and David, pre- and post- split.

Elsewhere in the magazine, amongst a wide range of other things, and subject of the cover photo, there's the piece on John Lennon which is an absorbing look at the impact and aftershock of the shooting, coupled with a range of artists, musicians and others talking about how Lennon changed their lives.

Always a great read, the magazine has arrived in UK stores today (Tuesday, December 15th), and will be available in selected locations worldwide as an import, in due course. Alternatively, you can order (worldwide) online through the GreatMagazines website which is owned and run by the publishers of Mojo.
