This is a book about how one band's music changed one man's life. From the moment that I first heard 'The Dark Side of the Moon' as a young boy, the music of Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett has been with me at every step of my journey through my teenage years in Essex, University in Nottingham, and what the grown-up world had in store for me - which was an awful long way from scarecrows with birds on their hats and straw everywhere.This book describes that journey, the role the music played (and still plays), and covers all of my grand passions from the poetry of John Keats through Leicester Tigers through my quest to find patterns in prime numbers and the exact whereabouts of an electron.This book will appeal to anyone who is deeply moved by music, anyone who ever suffered a crisis, and anyone who ever wondered why they grew up to be the person they became.
