Pink Floyd – “Moonhead”
July 20th and the 40th anniversary for landing on the moon are almost over. (It’s already July 21 in Greenwich.)
There have been numerous commemorations on the internet, in print, and on television (including an excellent presentation at NASA), but this one is interesting and unique.
Unbeknown to yours truly, the Pink Floyd played for BBC live coverage of the Apollo 11 event in 1969. Thanks to udor1962 for posting to youTube, and thanks to Robert Mackey of the New York Times for bringing this to my attention.
I don’t know how this will affect the debate for resuming manned missions to the moon, but maybe it will increase the demand for improvisational space-blues.
