From that point on, sorting out the roles of the various members of the band becomes a little complicated.
Roger Waters took it upon himself early on to be the band's "leader," but while it is true that Pink Floyd eventually became, in essence, his backing band, the group was very much a "democracy" for a good number of years.
If one were to ask a typical classic rock fan off of the street to name albums that Pink Floyd had done, 95 times out of 100 the answers would be restricted to Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall and Wish You Were Here.
Furthermore, it would happen more often than not that said typical classic rock fan would identify themselves as a "big Pink Floyd fan." Years and years after first getting seriously into the band, the distortion of the band's history by the classic rock radio community as a whole continues to greatly bother me.
This is a band that makes no freaking sense, and I love them for it.
History has done a really strange job of treating the band's legacy, though.
Point is, the separation between the "experimental" albums and the "normal" albums is certainly not as clear cut as many like to make it out to be, and dismissing the former while embracing the latter seems like a mistake to me.
Moving onto the band members themselves, I'd have to say that Pink Floyd had one of the most fascinating internal dynamics of any band that I know.
Their greatest commercial successes were with a concept album that shoved classic rock and smooth jazz styles into a prog rock format, a tribute album to their original frontman (whose main feature is a 25-minute synth-based art-rock suite, split in two), and a double-length rock opera released after the punk revolution.
It's not that the songs that get played most often are bad (though some of the ones off The Wall are a mite overrated), but rather that it just doesn't seem like an unreasonable request for other great songs from the band's lesser known albums to get play once in a while.
As great as "Time," and "Money," and "Comfortably Numb," and "Wish You Were Here," and "Run Like Hell" might be, it doesn't seem right for them to completely overshadow "Astronomy Domine," or "Cymbaline," or "One of These Days," or far too many others.
On the one hand, anybody who has ever listened to a classic rock station has had some level of exposure to them.
Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall are both easily in the top 5 of albums whose tracks are played most on the radio, and Wish You Were Here is probably somewhere up there too.

I agree with the love for Pink Floyd, but I most certainly do not always agree with the reasons that most people and establishments give for loving them.
