Paul Foster was banned from playing their albums last year, but broke it another five times before being jailed. Is he the biggest Pink Floyd fan in the world?

A Pink Floyd fan has been jailed for playing their music at full volume through the night.
Paul Foster, a 52-year-old from Stoke-on-Trent in England, will spend 28 days behind bars for ignoring five injunctions barring him from playing loud music at night.
Neighbors say they're fed up of hearing albums like "Dark Side of the Moon" and "The Wall" at all hours, often followed by sensual soul ballads. One neighbour told SWNS (via Classic Rock) how they used to be a Floyd fan themselves before their neighbour's all-night music sessions put them off:
"It's been a nightmare. I like Pink Floyd as much as the next man but not when it's being played ten times a day until 4am."I've lost track of the times I've heard Barry White and Marvin Gaye coming from the house, but it was mainly Pink Floyd. I think whenever I hear their songs again I'll be climbing the walls."
One family has even moved away from the area after being driven away by Foster's music. His first court appearance last September resulted in a ban from playing late-night music, which he broke in October and December. Another ban was introduced in January, but his campaign of progressive terror continued and he broke the ban again in February and March.
Could Paul Foster be the most obsessive Pink Floyd fan in the world? Let us know what you think in the comments.
