Pink Floyd Inductee to UK Music Hall of Fame

Pink Floyd Inductee to UK Music Hall of Fame

Channel 4 and Initial has announced that legendary rock group Pink Floyd will be among this year's inductees to the UK Music Hall of Fame.

David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Rick Wright will all attend the live UK Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony to be held in November. It will be only the second time in almost a quarter of a century that the whole group has appeared on stage together

Pink Floyd is without doubt one of the greatest rock bands of all time and among the most successful. They achieved legendary status with albums like The Wall and 1973's The Dark Side Of The Moon, which is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for being on the charts longer than any other album in history - racking up a staggering 1352 weeks on the Billboard chart.

Pink Floyd have been selected for induction by the UK Music Hall of Fame Steering Group - a panel comprising over 60 respected artists, music journalists, broadcasters and music industry executives.

{So glad this is happening to the Floyd, they deserve it and more. Hopefully we can get the boys to play a little :) }
