Gerald Scarfe - The Making of Pink Floyd The WallFurther to our last exclusive story regarding Gerald Scarfe's "The Making of Pink Floyd: The Wall", which is being published in the UK by Weidenfeld & Nicolson (who published Nick Mason's excellent "Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd") on October 21st 2010, we have another nice little exclusive to share with you.

"The Making of Pink Floyd: The Wall" is the authorized, definitive book about the project and includes new commentaries from the surviving members of Pink Floyd: Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason, together with the director of the film, Sir Alan Parker. Roger Waters has written the foreword. The album imagery, stage performances and film were created in close collaboration with Gerald Scarfe, and his massive archive includes original storyboards, animation cells, concept drawings, models and other three-dimensional material together with photographs of the creation and staging of the live performances and the filming of The Wall.

We have great pleasure in bringing you no less than three special video interviews with Gerald Scarfe, which you can view below. You can also see them on our Facebook page and our YouTube Channel...

In the book, Gerald also relates his own experiences of working with the band from the early days of Wish You Were Here to the Pros and Cons Of Hitchhiking with Roger Waters, after his break with the other band members, as well as his work for the new live show of The Wall. Thirty years after the first live performance was staged, Roger Waters is of course taking the show back on the road for a multi-city tour of the US from September 2010 to be followed in the spring of 2011 by a jaunt around Europe, bringing the album and the band right back into the headlines.

Having been very fortunate to have seen an early copy of the book, we know that this really will be a publication that all Pink Floyd fans will love. We're sure you will be knocked out by the quality of the book, and the depth of insight and the promised, never-before-seen material, is quite breathtaking. Our review will be here soon...but without further ado, here's Gerald himself talking about the album, Roger, and the 2010 tour:
