ON SALE FROM TUESDAY, October 28, 2014, the new MOJO salutes rock’s eternal voyagers Pink Floyd as they release The Endless River, the last music, they say, ever to be issued under the band’s name. In our 21-page special, we visit David Gilmour and Nick Mason in their lairs to talk at length about the album’s fragile genesis, and revisit the dramatic twists and turns of the group’s near 50-year career. Also: the first family of British folk – Thompsons Richard, Linda, Teddy and Kami – spill the beans on their unexpected but highly welcomed reunion; punk superstar Billy Idol walks us through his dark and debauched ’80s MTV years; Mick Fleetwood bares his soul; those present there recall Kurt Cobain’s bizarre last-ever photo session; and California psych-aholic Ty Segall reveals his curious modus operandi. All this and more, plus a synapse-sizzling free CD compiling the best of the new psych-rock wavers.
