Pink Floyd will reunite this year to play at the London Olympics, almost out of moral obligation to their contributions to British culture over the past century.
It’s been a while since they’ve gotten together on stage – the last time being at a charity gig in 2005, which itself was the first for 20 years. Since then, they’d stoically resisted the clarion calls to perform, waiting for a big enough occasion to present itself. And well, it doesn’t get much bigger than the Olympics.
