The Shocking Truth About Pink Floyd

If you’ve ever been to a laser light show of “The Wall,” you know all too well that Pink Floyd is the ultimate stoner rock band. Finding someone in the audience who wasn’t tripping their balls clean off would have been like finding someone of legal drinking age at a Justin Bieber concert. 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.”
