I'm astonished by the number of Pink Floyd cover bands...Don't they want to try and write their own music ?

Many of us do write our own material and only do the Floyd thing out of pure love for the music,  certainly not for the money or lack thereof. We are not a new Tribute either,  we were formed out of two other Floyd Tributes that had been going for some years.

I believe most of them do. But there's that little old thing about earning money you know. Rather important for most of us. Or sheer affection, as it appears to be in this case.

Great to have you here, TFE. What else do you listen to besides those monsters?

earning money,  that would be nice. We are self financed so there is usually more going out on crew/lighting/transport/hotels/deps etc,, than there is coming in (even if we sell out a show), but we love doing it.

Adding in a little non-prog favorite of mine here just for fits and giggles. Wonderful video I think, even if the music may not be to everybody's taste.
