I've been listening to Pink Floyd since 1971 and been a avid fans since then. I've heard most of the rumors & read a couple of biographies of the
band. This is one of the LEAST intriguing things about this band. It's also one of the thinnest theories & longest reaches for a conspiratorial alien
connection. This guy's website explains nothing, draws conclusion that are less than paper thin. Because David Gilmour has a signature guitar sound
that he used on a few songs, so does almost every successful guitarist alive. In fact Gilmour has several sounds he developed that is signature to
Pink Floyd. Like the movie anxiety build up you hear in the beginning of Shine on You Crazy Diamond. David show cased this sound on his solo DVD David
Gilmour in concert. This sound shows up more in their music than the "alien" sound Gilmour developed but where does the creator of the website get
the leap from a signature guitar sound to aliens??? Too far of a leap to make anyone go along with the writer. There is no indication that Kubrick
wanted Pink Floyd to do 2001 but Roger Waters did approach Kubrick on another project which never came close to fruition.
DaTroof points out an alien sound that Roger makes with his voice in a couple of songs but hell, my brother used to do this when we were kids. There
are a lot of great, strange stories concerning Pink Floyd but this isn't one of them.
Has anyone else put on Wizard of Oz & DSOTM together? I have with some friends of mine & were blown away with some of the lyrical precision fitting
with the action in the movie. Even after starting the CD over for a second time it matched up with the action. When the Tin Man & scarecrow are hiding
outside of the Castle, the guards with blades raise them from behind the heroes just when the band sings:
You raise the blade, you make the change, you rearrange me till I'm sane.
It gives you chills because up until that time in the movie you have already witnessed 30-40 "synchronities" between the album & movie. Of course
there were no Beta/VHS tapes of the movie to synchronize with in the studio.
Like I said, look into the background of this band (Saucer full of Secrets book) and this contrived mystery looks pedestrian in comparison. There are
at least 5 intriguing mysteries with this band without having to make the huge leap that David Gilmour is communicating with aliens on behalf of this
band. If it were close to being true I would have hoped the Moon people would have kept Roger Water's ego in check so that they could have completed
5-6 more masterpieces before breaking up.
