Pink Anderson & Floyd Council; The Men Behind 'Pink Floyd'

Pink & Floyd
Many people (myself included back when I started listening to the band) wonder what is the meaning of Pink Floyd's name. 'Does it have to do with drugs?' is the most common conception due to the band's association with drugs.

But the answer is much, much simpler.

In 1965, the Syd Barrett put the first names of Carolina blues musicians Pink Anderson and Floyd Council together, changing the band's name from The Tea Set to The Pink Floyd Sound. 

It's basically that simple. Everyone, meet Pink and Floyd!
