I'm a Cracked reader, and to day's article talks about Pink floyd: 5 Pleasant Surprises About Famous People You Had All Wrong. Take a look at the section «#4: Pink floyd never did drugs». Especially this part:
I might be mistaken, but I think this article is overly naive whent it comes to the band and drugs. Yes, they used it while making albums. Dave was smoking joint to at least 1976 (we have pictures that prove it), Roger too (at the time of Pompeii he was). We know that Dave and Rick had cocaine problems (and that Roger was using it too at some time). What do you thinkguys?Pink Floyd did not do drugs. Roger Waters has no idea why their music is associated with them.
Now, we're not going to say that members never dabbled in their youth, and founding member Syd Barrett's LSD abuse has been well documented, but according to keyboardist Richard Wright, they were clean by the time they were recording their most influential albums, long after Barrett had left the group. He flat out says, "If you mean Pink Floyd took drugs -- you're wrong. There is no way that I could play music and take any kind of drug at the same time."
