...aside from the paycheck.
:lol:

 

I heard an interview with Waters reguarding how, after the release of DSOTM, suddenly there was soooooo muuuuuch money...."I had to stop & consider whether or not I should become a capitalist"...

having that luxury usually means you already are one, admit it or not!

Yep...I've always found it interesting & somewhat amusing how quickly an infusion of cash can sway a person from previously stated convictions. :rolleyes:

Makes me wonder how opulent ole Rogers lifestyle might be at this point in his life.

My bro just told me G.E. Smith is one of the guitarists. Interesting choice.


I would have picked Robbie McIntosh, myself, but apparently he's under
John Mayer's
employment at the moment. That's a major shock.
:eek:
But a good career move for Robbie, though.

Wow that's cool. GE can certainly lay it down. :thu:

pretty comfortable I would imagine unless he gave it all away.

I recall at DSOTM times, the papers were full of how they had their own bank.

Anyway he is not alone. Gilmour is often talking socialism too.

 

Personally I care not a jot. Liking or disliking their music does not endorse or condemn their life style or beliefs.

Most musicians write about the demons in their lives. I positive that waters is aware of his contradictions, but maybe that's why his lyrics on the subject are so effective.

Agreed...my favorite band ever.

Got tickets for Dallas! Paid just over $100, but I'm afraid my seats are so high up I won't be able to see the stage through the cloud of pot smoke.

 

:lol:

 

I sadly didnt even know he was touring. :facepalm:

 

I will definitely have to see if I can score some seats somewhere near me.

Seen Roger many times. It's no Gilmour show in a musical sense, but still a great show. That said, the Wall is not a good album as a whole IMO and probably their weakest effort... Once again... coming from a fan-boy and it's just my opinion.

 

I'd gladly see Roger again, but not on this tour. I left soon after he started the DSOTM set on his last tour. The first set was great, but His Darkside was boring me. Of course, i did just see Gilmour 2 months before that. ;)

Can't wait. Sounds like it's going to be a terrific show.

Dave Kilminster is killer. He did some great solos on Rogers last tour

I missed that tour. Last time I caught him was the in the flesh tour which was really good. Saw him at darien back then. He did some great stuff off Amused to death at that one.

 

The production for this show should be interesting. Even if he isn't in top form anymore it's an opportunity I just couldn't say no too.

I went to that same show as well in 99. That tour was better than the last one, but Kilminster really brought a lot to the last tour. The 99 show was great though. "Perfect Sense" was awesome and so was "5:06 AM (Every Stranger's Eyes)" (even though he used backing track on the latter to get the high notes)

Yeah it was a ball. Perfect sense was definitely the high point. :thu:

I knew that would hurt some people. Sorry. i think there is a lot of filler on that album. Just my opinion

 

Not to argue, you're certainly entitled to your opinion. It's a bit of a concept/story album and if you equate it to a great book does every page in that book live up to the whole?

 

 

Just a thought

I don't have to listen to each page ;)

 

The concept is fine. A few amazing songs on that album. Enjoy :)

 

Now the album before and album after... those are great albums IMO. "Animals" is probably my favorite thing ever put on vinyl/tape/plastic

 

As a Pink Floyd super-fan nerd guy, i can be picky if I wanna :p
