The (former) members of rock band Pink Floyd are planning to sell their music catalog for a record amount. According to insiders from Bloomberg, the music rights must be sold for 500 million dollars (almost 475 million euros) to one of the interested parties. In addition to the musical rights, the band also sells the possibility of selling products that can be linked to the group, so-called merchandise. Potential buyers would include Warner Music, Sony Music and BMG. Patrick McKenna, who represents the band, declined to comment on the rumours. The fact that the band members have agreed on the sale is unique in itself. After the group was founded in 1965 under the leadership of then singer Syd Barrett, many dramas followed. Barrett left after three years, after which bassist and vocalist Roger Waters said goodbye to the band in 1985. He then sued his former colleagues for using the name Pink Floyd. Appointing McKenna as sales representative should lead the group through the sales process unscathed.
