For me it's the four together or not at all.
The 1967-1977 Pink Floyd albums get played quite frequently in my home.
I have never had any interest in their solo work, or anything that was released under the Pink Floyd name after "The Wall".
Even then, I watched the movie "The Wall" once (DVD has been in my collection for 15 years un-watched), and I had last played the full album about 18 years ago.

Not sure if Waters has any kids, but Gilmour's son was / is a dickhead.
Waters then...

Man does not live on Zappa alone though you can have a pretty varied and nutritious diet if you choose to go that way. There's a lot of other good stuff out there if you're open to it. Zappa led me to a lot of things I would never have checked out otherwise.

Well, I also hear some bebop (Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charle Parker), and some classical (Varesè, Bàrtok, Stravinsky). Zappa is up there too, the thing is I know much more music by Frank than by them, so he's still my favourite.

New Gilmour release inspired by the SCNF French train system jingle:

Waters, indeed.

Gilmour is a brillant guitar player but has really nothing to say.
"Amused to death" is way underrated.
Jeff Beck makes you forget about Gilmour on that album.
I like music that sticks in my heart and my soul.
And lyrics that do the same.

So, it's Waters.

I will never forget the day I surprisingly found my AtD cassette on a Jan-Cotu stand among some odd commerical releases. It had just been released. I listened to it day and night on my old "walkman" for a while; this album is indeed marvellous. I guess it was recently remastered and released on vinyl as well...

I'm on a countdown to attend Gilmour's first ever Brazilian gig within a week.

You found it in a Jean-Coutu drugstore ? I'm wondering if you're from province of Québec cause that's where these
stores are to be found. Unless, other stores opened elsewhere that I'm not aware of. I'm not really a Financial wiz (business news bore me to death).
BTW,will Waters end his career doing those Wall shows ? It's about time he does something else.

^No way. Too rich for my blood. My DZ concert friend is, though. He has a fairly close seat for all three days next weekend. $1000 was his package price. 8)

Not one solo song seems a bit defeatist to me.

Save up the money for the next time around Daveo' it's a bucket list show.

I got to see Roger and his wall back in 2012, Vector Arena indoor concert/sports venue, excellent seats right up front, stunning show, everyone sang their hearts out, got to shake Snowy White's hand as he went off stage at the end 8) . From (faulty) memory I think I paid around $400.00 2012 NZ dollars.

I was lucky enough to catch the Gilmour version of Pink Floyd (PF minus Roger) A Momentary Lapse of (maps) Reason tour waaaaay back in 1988 (over thirty years ago!) Western Springs (a speed way track) massive outdoor show all the bells and whistles flying hospital bed/aeroplane/pig.....that whole lost weekend only cost me a blanket and a bag of weed.....life was so simple back then.

I saw the Waters version on the Dark Side of the Moon tour in 2007 North Harbour Stadium (rugby field) front row seat dead centre so close I swear I got a tan from the pyrotechnics. Outdoors, warm beautiful night, Halleys comet clearly visable to the left of the stage and oh yes a mind blowing show. I think I paid around NZ$200.00 for the privilege.

All three of these concerts were located in that god damned hell hole that is Auckland..... :(

My Pink Floyd experiences:

Pink Floyd - Apr. 15th 1988 - L.A. Coliseum - http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/pink-floy ... 765d1.html

Roger Waters(Dark Side Of The Moon) - June 15th 2007 - Irvine Amp - http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/roger-wat ... 7265e.html note: I had 25 row, but I kept running down to the front to pump my fist at Roger, my friends tell me. And, I was freaking out when i looked up and behind me during Sheep and spotted the pig about 30ft. over my head!

Roger Waters(The Wall) - twice in 2010 - Honda Center(Anaheim) & Staples Center(LA).

Roger Waters will tour North America in 2017! - well what do ya know!





We now know what Roger Waters was up to with the recent cryptic posts on his website. He has a new tour coming next year.

The Roger Waters – Us + Them tour will launch in the U.S. on May 26 in Kansas City and wrap up on Oct. 28 in Vancouver. In between, he’ll play more than 40 dates in the States and Canada, including shows in Denver, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston and Toronto. You can see the full list of tour dates below.

A press release announcing the tour promises the tour “will showcase highlights from Waters’ groundbreaking body of work.” Presumably, the 1973 song that gives the tour its name — “Us and Them,” from Pink Floyd‘s landmark The Dark Side of the Moon album — will be one of them.

“We are going to take a new show on the road, the content is very secret,” Waters says. “It’ll be a mixture of stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things. Probably 75 percent of it will be old material and 25 percent will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme. It will be a cool show, I promise you. It’ll be spectacular like all my shows have been.”

The press release also notes that Waters’ stage show feature a state-of-the-art audio-visual production and quad sound, and hints that the upcoming concerts will include even more spectacular sights and sounds.

This will be Waters’ first tour since The Wall Live, which ran from 2010-13. That world tour reached more than four million fans and, according to the press release, “remains the highest grossing tour by any solo artist in history.”

Waters was part of the Desert Trip classic-rock festival in California last weekend. He returns this weekend for another round.

Tickets for Roger Waters – Us + Them go on sale on Oct. 21; VIP packages and Citi pre-sale tickets start on Oct. 17 (except for the Canadian dates). In addition to the shows listed below, concerts in San Antonio and Winnipeg will be added later. You can find more ticket information at AEG Live‘s site.

The KFC Yum! Center. WTF? I wouldn't mind trying to go. But the last time I saw The Grateful Dead in Louisville, the cops were fucking assholes. And, it wasn't just because the Touch Heads were ruining the scene.

I saw the KAOS tour when I was a teenager and it was kinda lame. Even then I knew the album was not good. The worst part of the whole show was when he went into Pigs and then only played the first verse before veering off. That was much worse than not playing it at all. Looking back now I realize that his band at the time could not have pulled it off. Still, Mel Collins was up there on the winds.


btw, I thought Momentary Lapse Of Reason was even worse than Kaos. At least Waters used his own name.
