Once upon a time, in the year 1971, a group of young twenty-something year-old music lovers decided to perform some songs in a decomposing 2,000-year old Roman amphitheater among the ruins of Pompeii (yes, the Mt. Vesuvius Pompeii).
What ensued was an epic hour-long set of pure bliss, just a group of friends jamming out to the music and having a blast while doing it. These friends were in a band called Pink Floyd, which went on to become one of the biggest rock bands in modern times.
How cool is that? A young rock band traveling to a faraway country to do what they love and to share the results with their fans. I wish that more bands these days could do awesome things like that.
Below’s a video of the band playing parts of their song Echoes:
