PINK FLOYD - The early years

Half a century after the founding of the band and two years after the end of Pink Floyd announced by David Gilmour, the art-rock legend presents "The Early Years 1965-1972", a box full of 27 CDs full of rarities from her early years. We take this publication as an opportunity to recapitulate these eight formative years - the prehistory of a world career. We also let Nick Mason speak in detail about the huge archive box and his memories of that phase.

BRAND X - Where is Phil?

BRAND X - Where is Phil?

Whenever and wherever the name Brand X is mentioned, the name Phil Collins comes first. This is not surprising, because the Genesis drummer and later adult popper was the most prominent member of the band, which was at the same time antithesis to all his other activities and fully emphasized his qualities as a drummer. But Collins' time in the formation, which was subject to permanent changes of instrumentation, should be relatively short. He was only on "Unorthodox Behaviour" (1976) and "Moroccan Roll" (1977), the first two of eight records so far, but they were the basis of the sound and reputation of the band.
