Play as 'terribly loud' as you like...

The next video is of the biggest band to have ever come out of my home town, Cambridge: Pink Floyd. Syd Barrett was the front man at the time, when Pink Floyd were in their early stages. Syd appeared to be unaffected by the rock and roll lifestyle at this stage and, more importantly, he seemed to be clean from the copious amounts of LSD. His eyes show a personality full of life, which is a pleasant contrast to the famous images of Syd looking listless and an onlooker on his own life.
However, What I like in particular about this video, aside from the mind- blowing performance, is the presenter's reaction to the band; Quite a distinct reaction of distaste for a band that became one of the biggest in the world.
