You’ve heard of the Freud Museum, now here’s the Floyd Museum! After its massive exploration of David Bowie in 2013, which was the biggest selling exhib in V&A history, and the Saatchi’s recent Rolling Stones expo, the V&A’s new exhibition delves deep into the history, artistry and acrimony of the ultimate prog rock megaband: Pink muthafuckin’ Floyd. From their genesis on the London psychedelic scene of the mid-’60s, through world domination, bitter disillusionment, gazillions of LP sales and thousands of ludicrously elaborate live shows, it’s quite a story. Along with instruments, photos, costumes, diaries, props and Syd Barrett’s actual bike, here are five rock relics that you’ll see in ‘The Pink Floyd Exhibition’.
‘The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains’ is at the V&A from May 13 until Oct 1 2017.
