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 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
