Pink Floyd began as a rhythm and blues band in Great Britain in the mid 1960s. Their rise to stardom started in 1966 with a shift from rhythm and blues to improvised experimental music. Their first album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, was released in August of 1967. In the beginning of 1968 their main songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist, Syd Barrett, was replaced by David Gilmour. Their second album, A Saucerful of Secrets, was released in June of 1968. In 1970 Pink Floyd released another album, Atom Heart Mother, which featured the title song on an entire side of the album, complete with orchestra and choir. 1971 brought about the release and reviews of the Pink Floyd album Meddle.

Although the shows sold out immediately and were well received by the public, the press was less enthusiastic about the performances. In 1975 they released the follow up album to Dark Side of the Moon titled Wish You Were Here. 1976 was spent writing music for a new album and in 1977 that album was released and it was titled Animals.

Each type of person was loosely based on an animal. Dogs were...
