Greetings pink Floyd fans, here is a first introduction of my pink Floyd stories, hope you enjoy.
Pink Floyd as you know are one of the great supergroups,of all time selling hundreds of millions of albums and playing to a countless number of fans, well here is a little story about the time they played in soldiers field Chicago,
Before the concert started, roger waters went up to stand on the top of the stage to look at the huge audience of fans in front of him, Steve o rouke the pink Floyd manager said look at the crowd there is 63,000 fans out there, but roger knowing what a 63,000 crowd looked like said ,no way there is a lot more than that 80,,000 if not 100,000 fans ,I should know we have played to that many loads of times, so off he went back to check at the box office, yep 63,000 the box office confirmed, roger waters was having none of it , immediately went out and hired a helicopter, and some lawyers, and some professional photographer’s and flew over the crowds of adoring fans taking pictures of everybody from the air , and low and behold he was right , it turned out that in Chicago on that eventful night, there was a crowd of ninety five thousand fans, so where were the other 32,000 people or as roger waters, and the rest of the band would like to know the missing $640.000.
