Pink Floyd Management
How do I contact Pink Floyd and/or their management?
Getting in touch with Pink Floyd isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do – or so I’ve heard – I just run a fan site and have never tried to seek out this information.
It’s the most common question I get asked, and I really don’t know their email addresses or phone numbers. But even if I did have it, I’m not sure they would want to give it out to me, or have me give their information out to anyone else.
Pink Floyd and their management generally seem pretty private for the most part and probably don’t want to have to deal with a barrage of emails. They don’t appear to advertise it anywhere on the official Floyd site – or anywhere else on the web that I’ve seen for that matter.
Their record labels are EMI and Sony, you can maybe get in touch with someone there.
You might also try to contact them via the Official Pink Floyd Facebook page or on the Official Pink Floyd Twitter account.
Here’s some possibly helpful links:
Here’s a list of Pink Floyd related mailing addresses:
Keep in mind I’m not sure if any of these work any more – so spend a stamp at your own risk!
Also: If you are wanting to send a CD or something in hopes of getting it autographed – I’ve heard they very rarely sign stuff any more, as they’ve seen a lot of the stuff they’ve signed just end right up on eBay and, for this reason, don’t do it very often any more.
My opinion about what to do if you are looking for copyright or some other sort of permission from Pink Floyd, but aren’t sure what to do:
In my opinion, if you are wanting to use a Pink Floyd song in a school project or something similarly trivial, you might consider just giving credit and citing your project like this:
“Music under license to Pink Floyd Music Ltd.”
I think a general rule of thumb is: If you want to use something of Pink Floyd’s and aren’t going to be making any money off it – and it’s for something rather trivial such as a school project – you probably don’t have to ask them for permission, as they can’t be bothered with minor things like this.
If you are going to be making any sort of money off Pink Floyd songs, or the Pink Floyd name in any way – it’s probably best to try and get permission. Record companies usually don’t like when people other then them make money off their artists and bands.
So to sum up:
Want to use a Pink Floyd song in a school project, or at your wedding? Probably don’t need permission.
Want to use a Pink Floyd song in a car commercial, or in a short film you’re making? Probably need permission.
If you’re a charity, you probably fall somewhere in the middle because money is involved – but you may be a non-profit wanting permission for something trivial, so who knows. Probably best to try and obtain permission to be on the safe side.
Use your best judgement as to where your matter lies.
Oh ya, just a couple more things:
- Pink Floyd don’t do private parties, events or corporate gigs.
- If you upload a video to YouTube that has a Pink Floyd song in it, there’s a chance EMI will take it down.
Hopefully this has helped point you in the right direction. Good luck.
