An Interview With Pink Floyd

Mike Quigley, The Georgia Straight, 14 October 1970

This interview was conducted before Pink Floyd's first Vancouver concert in October of 1970. Despite a whopping hangover, I managed to struggle out to the PNE Gardens where the concert was being held. I managed to get to talk to Rogers Waters and David Gilmour after showing them a rave review of their album Ummagumma I had written in February of that year for the University of B.C. paper, The Ubyssey in which I described it as "one of the best rock albums ever made".
