V&A Pink Floyd Exhibition

I went last week and really enjoyed it. The new mix of Comfy Numb from Live 8 in surround sound and video was interesting.

The only downside was the large number of visitors, making it difficult to see up close many of the exhibits. I advise going off-peak if you can.

i love Pink Floyd too, all albums between 1969 and 1977. But after i find that they could not propose something new, always the same old tracks on concerts, cooking and cooking always the same music. I saw them twice in concert, between 1988 and 1995:  nice shows, but the magic and fabulous creativity of their first 5 or 6 albums is gone. Just my opinion.

But the show is still amazing....    Sorry if some will disagree, just my feeling, wanted to share.

There's some beautiful silk screen prints of Floyd covers done and signed by the late Storm Thorgerson for sale at the V&A. They were printed in 2001 and limited to 295. Can't be many left.

Planning to go next week........how long does it take to get around, I know this depends on an individual but am I looking at the whole day or a couple of hours, just an average so I can arrange my trip accordingly (don't want to rush it)
