On Sept. 20, the three-story North London home where Roger Waters, Syd Barrett and Nick Mason formed Pink Floyd went up on the auction block. The lads rented from their college tutor Mike Leonard, a technician who helped create the band's light show.


After Leonard's death this year, the home became available for the first time since the band lived there as students in the 1960s.


The building was a fixer-upper but still pulled in nearly $2 million, as did the adjacent lot that was sold at auction. The remaining evidence of Leonard and the Floyd legacy were Leonard's workshop featured in a 1968 BBC broadcast — a xylophone (thought to belong to Leonard, not the band), a speaker built into the roof eaves, and according to an interview with Mason, "The hood of my Aston Martin International might still be buried in the garden."
