The Dark Side of the Moon


The Dark Side of the Moon is one of rock’s most fully realised and elegant concept albums, and a stunning exploration of the madness, anxiety and alienation rooted in the band’s history – and particularly in the tragic tale of their one-time leader Syd Barrett. Drawing on interviews with bass guitarist and chief songwriter Roger Waters, guitarist Dave Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason, and the album’s supporting cast, The Dark Side of the Moon is a must-have for those who want to know more about one of the most compelling, commercially successful and mysterious albums ever made.
