Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here | This Day In Music

Written by on October 4, 2021


4 Oct 1975, Pink Floyd went to No.1 on the UK album chart with Wish You Were Here. The album featured a tribute to ex band member Syd Barrett, ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’. Also No.1 in the US. For one of the shots on the album’s cover, two stuntmen were used, Danny Rogers and Ronnie Rondell, who was dressed in a fire-retardant suit covered by a business suit. Initially the wind was blowing in the wrong direction, and the flames were forced into Rondell’s face, burning his moustache. The two stuntmen changed positions, and the image was later reversed. https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/classic-albums/pink-floyd-wish-you-were-here/
