Beatle Influence on Pink Floyd
« on: January 20, 2005, 04:26:58 AM »

I was listneing to the song Echoes by Pink Floyd yesterday and I was struck by some of the similarities to the Beatles.  The line "inciting and inviting" from Across the universe appears.  Also the phrase "And I am you and what I see is me" seems like a new interpretation of the famous walrus lines.

Meddle is from 1971. They were probably recording More or Ummagumma when the Beatles recorded Abbey Road.

The incident of the Beatles/Floyd recording next door is in the 1st edition of the Hunter-Davies book, which means it must  pre-date 1968

Here's a synopsis of a book called:'Every Sound There Is': Revolver and the Transformation of Rock and Roll

'Every Sound There Is' assesses and celebrates the Beatles' accomplishment in their 1966 masterpiece. The essays of Every Sound There Is examine Revolver from a large number of complementary starting points that help us to understand both the album's contemporary creation and reception and the ways in which it continues to shape the creation and reception of popular music in the twenty-first century.

Responding to the incredible diversity of Revolver, this gathering of international scholars focuses on the Beatles' 1966 album as one of rock and roll history's threshold moments. Bringing to bear approaches from the disciplines of musicology, cultural studies, poetics, gender studies, these essays address matters as diverse as the influence of American R&B on Revolver as well as its influence on Pink Floyd, each Beatle

I know it was Wings recording next door while Floyd were recording Dark Side OTM. They even sampled some talking from the members of Wings amongst other people. 'I dunno, I was really drunk at the time'....lol

Rolling Stone: You've said in the past that your direct style of lyric-writing on Dark Side of the Moon was influenced by 1970's John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band album.

Roger Waters: I just think that's one of the truly great moments in the history of rock & roll, or of the history of any writing. It's a remarkable piece of work. Who knows? He might have found his way back to making something of similar power had he lived. It's so raw. There are a number of records that, when one's young, knock you into a different place and give you the will to go on trying to do something. That record is one of them. Another one was the Band's first album. That completely changed everything about records for me. Pet Sounds and Sgt. Pepper, too.

THere's a thread similiar to this on a Floyd Forum. It's interesting. They give some good examples of the similarities of the two bands. Here's the link if you're interested.
