Roger Waters did LSD two times * 1
    #15611855 - 01/03/12 06:01 PM (2 years, 6 months ago)

I've always wondered how many times the members of Pink Floyd did LSD and/or other psychedelics.  Of course we all know that Syd did psychedelics (too) many times, but you never really hear the other members talk about it.  Well tonight I finally got my Netflix DVD of the documentary called A Technicolor Dream, which was about the late 60's underground psychedelic scene in London, which culminated in the 14 Hour Technicolor Dream concert.  It's terrific. 

One of the many interesting things in the movie was a Roger Waters interview, specifically when he briefly talked about his own psychedelic experiences.  He said that he tried LSD twice.  I'm not at all surprised that he didn't take it many times, but I thought it would have been from 5-10 times, rather than two.  He said (in so many words) that he took Sandoz LSD both times.  He called it "pharmaceutical grade, straight out of the bottle".  He said that both trips were good trips, but that basically he wasn't willing to make the kind of life changes that being deep in the psychedelic culture demands.

I would be pretty surprised if Gilmour and Wright didn't do a bit more exploration with acid than Waters...  Not any offense to Roger and his amazing music, but some of the things that he has done historically come off as less than psychedelically driven/natured.  The other members seem a bit more chill/down to earth in the documentaries and interviews I've seen.

I wouldn't be surprised if Gilmour tried LSD more than twice, but I don't think Rick Wright was into it at all.

Pink Floyd will be mentioned alongside Mozart and Beethoven in history books 100 years from now.

That is strange, I definitely would have expected more than twice.
But then again, after seeing what it did to Syd I guess it's not too big of a surprise they would be hesitant to continue to experiment with psychedelics.
But yeah, Wright and Gilmour were a lot more laid back and seemed easier to get along with; let's be honest, Waters could be a bit of a prick. But he still remains among my top 5 favorite musicians of all time, and his contributions to Floyd were enormous.
Pink Floyd btw, being my favorite band.

it's hard to not just laugh at that post.

ok... what about King Crimson, for example?

not as good. right?

nope. how about the countless other space-rock groups?

13th Floor Elevators?

lots of psychedelic bands and progressive rock bands that do just as good a job if not better then Pink Floyd.









my favorite Floyd album is animals... i'm going to play a song in their and this thread's honor.

Well, that's really just a matter of taste, isn't it?

hardly. it's a matter of "mettle".

see what i did there? i used Pink Floyd's own album title against them. :yarly:

see, my point is that having a big name that everyone recognizes and having a quintessential sound doesn't automatically make you the best... there is plenty to go around.

and more to that point... everyone and every band's "sound" has come from and been influenced by something else in the past. NOTHING is traceable to merely one "band", hence, Pink Floyd nor none of the aforementioned bands can be "the best band". :mypleasure:

I have a feeling that what happened to Syd deterred them from further psychedelic use.  I'm sure for most people, your desire to do psychedelics all but disappears once you've seen it cause your dear friend to go insane.

Could you guys please get back to the subject at hand.  I'll gladly join a thread about whether Pink Floyd is great or not with you if you want to make your own.

random cessation of Syd's influence made the band resort to the writings of English hobgoblins.

and they say LSD causes no brain damage,bull shit Syd is living proof! Hell what about the song title brain damage on dark side,coincidence?




It wasn't really brain damage caused by LSD itself, but rather the toxic mixture of way too much LSD and Syd's schizophrenic tendencies.  However, this can happen to people without these tendencies as well.
