Book Takes Fans Behind The Wall

The title of a book due out October 1 does not overstate the importance of the role its subject had in establishing the preeminence of a band.  The Making Of Pink Floyd: The Wall provides a behind the scenes look at the writing and recording of the monumentally successful album that capped a decade of extraordinary releases by the UK prog Rock group.  The fact the three surviving members of the band have all endorsed the project adds to expectations that the book by Gerald Scarfe will prove to be a fascinating look into the process of making the double album. Michael Dover, Editor-In-Chief of publisher Weidenfeld & Nicholson, remarks, 'Somehow gerald has managed to smooth ruffled feathers and the protagonists of the past cheerfully recall epic battles in the pages of this book.' The author equates collecting material for the book to reporting from a war zone at times, but says he was '...delighted to get the surviving members of the band as well as Sir Alan Parker (film director for The Wall movie) to share their reminiscences of those times with me.'
