Rock god Roger Waters was born today.  I never got the chance to see Pink Floyd perform, which breaks my heart because I love them so much, but I did get to see Roger Waters perform the entire Wall album!  Though the absence of the other members of the Floyd was very noticeable, the visuals that Roger Waters used were some of the best I’ve ever seen in my entire concert going life.  That’s saying a lot! I am sure a DVD of the performance will be released, so I recommend you check it out if that day comes to pass.  When you see the colors on “Comfortably Numb,” you just might be transported into another world.  Happy birthday, Roger!

One of my personal Gods, David Gilmour of Pink Floyd celebrates his 65th birthday today.  Though he’s aged pretty well considering the rock and roll lifestyle he’s lived, in the 1970s, Gilmour was so hot!  I’ll be celebrating today by listening to “There’s No Way Out Of Here,” which in my opinion is a perfect song.  It’s got great lyrics, amazing harmonies and Gilmour’s signature “blow you away” guitar solos!  Happy birthday DG!
