Pink Floyd: Formed in 1965 by Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Rick Wright, Pink Floyd soon became the unofficial house band for London’s psychedelic counterculture. The group, named after American bluesmen Pink Anderson and Floyd Council, gained an early reputation for catering to patrons of London’s infamous UFO (pronounced YOU-fo) club with cerebral improvisations and intense light shows.
