Pink Anderson

Pink Anderson (12 de Fevereiro de 1900 - 12 de Outubro de 1974) foi um cantor e guitarrista de blues, nascido em 12 de Fevereiro de 1900 em Lawrence, Carolina do Sul. Em 1914 juntou-se a Dr. Kerr da “Indian Remedy Company” para entreteter as multidões (cantando, dancando e contando anedotas) enquanto Kerr tentava vender uma mistura com qualidades medicinais.

Em 1916, Anderson conhece Simmie Dooley em Spartanburg, com quem aprendeu a cantar o “blues”. Quando Anderson não viajava com Dr. Kerr, ele e Dooley tocavam em pequenos ajuntamentos em Spartanburg e arredores.

Após o afastamento de Dr. Kerr em 1945, Anderson ficou-se por Spartanburg afinando o seu talento musical com a guitarra e harmónica. Problemas de coração forçaram Anderson a retirar-se em 1957.

Anderson gravou algumas músicas nos anos 60 e entrou em 1963 no filme The Bluesmen.

Syd Barrett formou uma banda nos anos 60 chamada Pink Floyd, usando os primeiros nomes de Anderson e de Floyd Council. Barrett aparentemente possuía uma gravação de um dos LP’s de Anderson.
