Roger Waters is honoring his late friend's wish by supporting the publication of his book about Pink Floyd.
He says, "One of my oldest friends, Nick Sedgwick, died in August of 2011 of brain cancer. I miss him a lot. I share this sad news with you all for a good reason.
"He leaves behind a manuscript, In the Pink (Not a Hunting Memoir).
"His memoir traces the unfolding of events in 1974 and 1975 concerning both me and Pink Floyd. In the summer of 1974 Nick accompanied me, and my then wife Judy, to Greece. We spent the whole summer there and Nick witnessed the beginnings of the end of that marriage.
"That autumn he traveled with Pink Floyd all round England on The Dark Side of the Moon Tour. He carried a cassette recorder on which he recorded many conversations and documented the progress of the tour. In the spring of 1975 he came to America with the band and includes his recollections of that time also.
"When Nick finished the work in 1975 there was some resistance in the band to its publication, not surprising really as none of us comes out of it very well, it's a bit warts and all, so it never saw the light of day.
"It was Nick's wish that it be made available to all those interested in that bit of Pink Floyd history. All proceeds will go to Nick's family."
The book is available through Waters' website, RogerWaters.com.
