Wish You Were Here, One of my favourite albums says Pink Floyd's David Gilmour. Wish You Were Here's haunting central theme of Shine on you Crazy Diamond is never far out of consciousness. Welcome To The Machine introduces Waterss fascination with pessimistic sci-fi views of the future. Wish You Were Here itself is a sad and wistful indictment of insecurity.

Storm Thorgerson recalls that one of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here themes, indeed one word, prevailed during the recording of Wish You Were Here at Abbey Road absence. Nothing more poignantly, or powerfully illustrated this than the unexpected arrival of ex Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett at the studio during the vocal takes for Wish You Were Here's Shine On You Crazy Diamond, having been absent from Pink Floyd seven years. Says Storm Thorgerson the handshake from the burning man is as empty or absent a gesture as you can get. The man is really on fire. He wore an asbestos suit under the cloth suit, which extends over the head, where a wig was attached. The first attempts at setting him alight were in the wrong wind direction.

The flames were blown back and ignited his moustache for an instant. A close shave, one might say.. . . . the diver in the lake makes no splash, so is he there really? Or is he absent?. The man in the desert is faceless, no features, no scruples or rather absent morality . . . and so on and so forth. The whole Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here album design was then hidden by Storm Thorgerson from public view by an opaque black shrink-wrap. In effect, Storm Thorgerson 's Pink Floyd cover was absent
