David Gilmour


And the Radio KAOS tour.  Lord save us was that ever lame....
Radio KAOS was some of Waters' most disturbing work, when he finally dropped the "big lie" and decided to focus on the "small truth" instead ...

When they overrun the defences
A minor invasion put down to expenses
Will you go down to the airport lounge?
Will you accept your second class status
A nation of waitresses and waiters?
Will you mix their martinis?
Will you stand still for it?
Or will you take to the hills?

When the cowboys and Arabs draw down
On each other at noon
In the cool dusty air of the city boardroom
Will you stand by a passive spectator
Of the market dictators?
Will you discreetly withdraw
With your ear pressed to the boardroom door?
Will you hear when the lion within you roars?
Will you take to the hills?

I got to enjoy the Floyd at Knebworth house back in the 70s

Pink Floyd Live at Knebworth 1990, a new package documenting the band's Silver Clef Award Winners show at England's Knebworth House, will be released on April 30.

Jfc but I couldn't name three Floyd songs if I had a gun pointed to my fuking head. Just horrendously noisy noise.

(except for the one with Maryanne Faithful.....that was pretty decent)......
The Dark Side of the Moon is among the most critically acclaimed records in history, often featuring on professional listings of the greatest albums of all time. The record helped propel Pink Floyd to international fame, bringing wealth and recognition to all four of its members. A blockbuster release of the album era, it also propelled record sales throughout the music industry during the 1970s. It has been certified 14× platinum in the United Kingdom, and topped the US Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart, where it has charted for 957 weeks in total. With estimated sales of over 45 million copies, it is Pink Floyd's most commercially successful album, and one of the best-selling albums worldwide. In 2013, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress for being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

As for solo stuff, I wore out the grooves on 1984's About Face.

I haven't thrown Dark Side of the Moon on in years but I'll throw Dark Side of the Mule on here and there.

I love Warren Haynes grittier take on a lot of the super smooth tones of Gilmour's original solos. The band ain't half bad either.

Here's a live performance of the material...

Slightly off thread but as many of you may know, David and ex-PF member Roger Waters are back calling each other names like school boys yet again after both had toned it down 15 years ago.

Shit started hitting the fan about month ago when Roger started questioning David's abilities.


Roger took time off from this behavior to bitch slap Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerbeg on Mark's Facebook platform last week while promoting it at a news conference.


then he went after Mark's fanbois.

That boy does not give a rat's ass about anyone other himself..  But he is amusing to watch..

Roger could have continued to be a member of a top 0.01% world band had he not been so controlling and inflexible.

Too bad, Pink Floyd could potentially have gotten even better. Or not.

Definitely Great Gig In The Sky, Comfortably Numb and maybe a couple by Loreena Mckennitt will be played at my memorial.
