Greatest Pink Floyd Members


The Top Ten

1 David Gilmore

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

He can play the guitar as well as sing, but I'll tell ya along with waters lyrics nobody can beat floyd.

Pink Floyd's best singer and one of the greatest guitarist of all time. And he also wrote many great songs with waters ("Wish You...", "Dogs", "Comfortably Numb") and he was the band leader in the late 80s and early 90s when Waters had left the band. And his name is Gilmour, not Gilmore! - DarkSideOfDragons

2 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 .

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

3 Roger Waters Roger Waters George Roger Waters, is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He was mostly known for the secondary lead vocals 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...

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

4 Syd Barrett

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

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.

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 David Gilmour David Gilmour David Jon Gilmour is an English singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. He joined the progressive rock band Pink Floyd as guitarist and co-lead vocalist in 1968.
