Greatest Pink Floyd Members


The Top Ten

1 David Gilmore

Pink Floyd will never be the same without Gilmour on guitar.

They spelled Gilmour wrong :( - OmegaRanker

Haha, Gilmore. It's GILMOUR! - PinkF

An amazing artist, but Pink Floyd worked best with the combination of Gilmour's musical talent and Waters' material

2 Roger Waters Roger Waters George Roger Waters is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He is mostly known for being the secondary lead vocalist and bassist of Pink Floyd.

Yes, I agree, he can be an a-hole from time to time, but who isn't. Gilmore is by far my favorite guitarist, and I think that he was in the right and Roger was in the wrong in just about 99% of the arguments. But Roger, was Pink Floyd from beginning to end, he was "The Wall"; when he left, Pink Floyd wasn't Pink Floyd. He has an ego, but he was the leader...

Roger was a jerk that only cared about the band rather than its members. But I gotta say he was a Genius. It wasn't right for him to take over the dark side of the moon, control wish you were here, and make animals his go to album, but he made them amazing. Songs like money or sheep prove this. - Cucboi99

He had the idea for the concept of "Dark Side..." and "The Wall" and he wrote all the lyrics from 1973-1983. And he also wrote the music for songs such as "Money", Brain Damage/Eclipse", "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" and much from "The Wall". - DarkSideOfDragons

With no doubt he’s the best.

3 Richard Wright Richard Wright Richard William "Rick" Wright was an English musician, composer, singer and songwriter. He was the main keyboardist and a backup vocalist for the psychedelic and progressive English rock band, Pink Floyd .

My Ranking of the Pink Floyd members if this:

1. Richard Wright
2. David Gilmour
3. Roger Waters
4. Nick Mason
5. Syd Barret - OmegaRanker

He's so simple, harmonious, and calm minded. Such an underrated musician. - MontyPython

I think David Gilmour and Roger Waters were more important, but without Rick Wright there weren't "Shine On...", Us And Them", "The Great Gig...". And his keyboard sound was so important for the bands sound in the 70s. - DarkSideOfDragons

4 Syd Barrett

He was Pink Floyd. He was a genius, and he had an eccentric personality. He only was heavily in one album by the band, but, boy, what a one album it was! The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is a masterpiece. Nick Mason is at his best, Roger Waters does great, Richard Wright was amazing, but they could have never made this without Barrett.

Don't even like most of his songs, but he is probably the most legendary and important floyd member ther was

Without him Pink Floyd would have never started. He was Pink Floyd from '65 till '68 when David Gilmour replaced him. And he wrote most of the bands early songs (for example the first singles "Arnold Layne" and "See Emily Play"). - DarkSideOfDragons

He is the crazy diamond - patrickfloyd

5 Nick Mason Nick Mason Nicholas Berkeley "Nick" Mason is an English musician and composer, best known as the drummer of legendary rock band Pink Floyd.

So sad to see him so low on the list! Such a nice voice that carried more of a warm depth to it than the others.

He is not as important as the other members, but his drums on songs like "Echoes", A Saucerful of Secrets" and "Main Theme" are great and so atmospheric. And he also co-wrote some important songs which lead to "Dark Side..." (Careful with that axe, eugene", Atom Heart Mother"...). - DarkSideOfDragons

He is the only member of Pink Floyd that has been on all of their studio albums. - KyleDCrocodile

6 Bob Klose Bob Klose Rado Robert Garcia Klose is an English musician, photographer and printmaker. Between 1964 and July 1965, he was the lead guitarist of an early rock band that would later become Pink Floyd.
