The Wall

January 4, 2016

A film by Roger Waters, The Wall.

Frank Waters, father of Roger Waters, was posted missing in Italy, presumed dead, at the end of WWII. Roger Waters was five months old.  As a child, he wanted to go to Italy and bring back his father.

The Wall is The Wall of 1979 revisited.

Sufi poetry set to music. And by amazing contrast Pink Floyd Comfortably Numb.

David Gilmour – The Divison Bell

November 20, 2010

This is about as good as it gets! At least it is if you have the original concert on DVD. This on YouTube is poor video, poor sound.

Not Pink Floyd as incorrectly recorded on YouTube, but was originally perfomed by Pink Floyd.

I think this is from the acoustic concert David Gilmour gave at the Royal Festival Hall. At the time he gave two concerts, one at the Royal Festival Hall the other at the Royal Albert Hall.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond – David Gilmour

August 7, 2010

David Gilmour, former guitarist Pink Floyd, live in concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Dick Parry on Sax, Nick Wright on keyboards (Pink Floyd), guest appearance by Dave Crosby and Graham Nash (Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young).

Shine On You Crazy Diamond sends shivers down the spine.

For those who still pine for a Pink Floyd reunion, David Gilmour has gone beyond and outgrown Pink Floyd.
