Hey NPF,

I'm Phantom Turnip, a 20-something keyboardist and geographer from Missouri. I first entered the online Pink Floyd community through the PFOnline forums (and later helped to establish the successor group Floydians), and just want to meet and talk with as many Floyd fans as I can. My top three PF albums are Wish You Were Here, The Endless River, and Atom Heart Mother, and as a keyboardist, I'm madly in love with Rick Wright and his solo work (Broken China forever).

That's probably all for now.

Hi, all. I finally took the plunge and registered, even though I've been reading this site and these forums for years.

I'm an old. I was working in radio when The Wall, The Final Cut, and Pink Floyd The Wall movie were released. Exciting times that I barely remember....

I think The Wall, more than any other Floyd album, has been there for many milestones in my life.

I'm a graphic designer, blogger, and self-proclaimed "Student of The Wall" from Dallas/Fort Worth. I've spent the last several (okay, many) years researching, locating, and restoring the various tracks and bits of tracks which were cut to keep the running time suitable for 2 vinyl LPs. All these years and all the times I've listened to The Wall and other Pink Floyd albums, they all still sound fresh and relevant to me.

I'm also active in r/pinkfloyd on Reddit. I'm looking forward to engaging with you here and hope some day to be able to inspire another Floyd fan the way this community has inspired and helped me over the years.

Good day folks.

I've been reading your forum for years but just got round to joining. I've been a lifelong fan (for about 36 years. I'm 40 now). Hopefully I'll be contributing regularly - you have a wealth of knowledge here and it always makes great reading.

All the best.

A purebred Russian from the major metropolis. I saw the band for the first time than I was a teenage.

Hi all,

I am a young British Pink Floyd fan from North west England. Although I was born the year The Division Bell was released, the 'classic rock' artists from the late 1960s and 1970s are by far my biggest musical love and Floyd is top of the tree for me. I have been reading the boards for a few months, and I've liked what I seen!

When it comes to my favourite albums, I can't overlook the 'Big Five' from the 1970s - Meddle, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall. As for outright favourite, it's close between Dark Side and Wish, but I'd give the slight edge to the latter. My favourite songs are too many to list, but if I had to pick just one, it's Shine On You Crazy Diamond - the guitar from Part II never fails to give me chills, and is probably my favourite bit of music ever.

I should probably explain my username at this juncture, which is of course also taken from Shine On - I chose it partly because I love the lyrics from that song but also because I think it describes the Wish You Were Here sound perfectly, with Roger and Nick in the rhythm section providing the 'steel' and David and Rick providing the 'breeze' with their beautiful contributions.

Aside from the Floyd, who are number one for me, other artists I love include Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Eagles, Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler, Bob Dylan, Fleetwood Mac, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Deep Purple. I guess I could say I'm more into classic rock generally rather than one particular style or movement.

Really looking forward to taking part in some interesting discussions,

Jonny (Steel Breeze)
