Although she was initially viewed as yet another face in the late '90s crowd of teen pop acts, Pink quickly showed signs of becoming one of the rare artists to transcend and outgrow the label. Born Alecia Moore on September 8, 1979, in Doylestown, PA (near Philadelphia), Pink received her nickname as a child (it had nothing to do with her later shade of hair dye).


One of the top-selling rock groups in history, Pink Floyd was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
The band name comes from two bluesmen: Pink Anderson (1900-74) and Floyd Council (1911-76)... The band's cult status was enhanced in the 1990s when the rumor spread that the album Dark Side of the Moon took on new meaning when played in synchronization with the movie The Wizard of Oz.
