The February 2012 issue of Guitar World magazine is available now. Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Nick Mason tell the story behind the making of Meddle and Wish You Were Here, the two prog-rock classics that book-ended their 1973 masterpiece, The Dark Side of the Moon.

With a number one album, a high-profile stadium tour and non-stop radio airplay, Pink Floyd appear to be everywhere -- and, oddly, nowhere.

On Tuesday, September 27, the bulk of Pink Floyd's catalog is getting the royal reissue treatment, courtesy of EMI. All 14 of the band's studio albums -- from The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn to The Division Bell -- will be available, all remastered and smelling of shiny new cardboard. Also available is the massive Discovery box set, which includes all 14 albums and a very cool photo book.
