Members of Europe covered the Pink Floyd classic “Wish You Were Here” on January 26, 2008.
“It’s one of our favorite Floyd songs of all time,” Europe say of “Wish You Were Here.” “we have many memories playing that, back in high school even, at parties. It was just the one song that everybody seemed to know and loved to sing along.
“Pink Floyd is a huge influence not only on me but on the rest of the guys. Of course, The Astonishing is a concept album written around a story. Pink Floyd’s The Wall was definitely an inspiration. And they’ve been a huge influence. I love the fact that they have so many great songs that you can just strum on an acoustic guitar and have people sing along and know it. There is a real art to that.”
