Reinventing Pink Floyd: A Review

By Deanna Proach
(The Hollywood Times) 3/27/18 – Reinventing Pink Floyd, written by Bill Kopp, explores the five-year period from Syd Barrett’s departure in 1968 through 1973, tracing the winding creative path the band followed to success. After Barrett left the band, Pink Floyd rebranded itself through the development of a musical identity and songwriting style. As Bill Kopp illustrates in Reinventing Pink Floyd, the band’s musical career was filled with failed experiments, one-off musical excursions and abortive collaborations. However, Pink Floyd went on to release landmark albums that continue to influence generations of musicians and fans.  
Reinventing Pink Floyd is very well researched and packed full of detail. Seldom do you read about a famous band’s setbacks. However, in his narrative, Kopp includes the setbacks Pink Floyd endured on their journey to stardom. It is an honest narrative that fans of Pink Floyd will both enjoy and appreciate.
