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!
I estimate that I saw over 200 bands in 2010. Picking out the top 10 shows that really blew me away was a really hard task because I was privileged to see so much great music. Believe me, there were way more than 10 shows that knocked my socks off, but for purposes of a top ten list, these are my picks. Please believe me that if any of these bands come to your town, I cannot recommend highly enough that you go see them!
You’ve seen “In The Flesh (Part 1).” Since I know nobody clicks on the links I go out of my way to provide, you can search the archives if you want to see a spectacular video of Roger Waters from Pink Floyd opening his full performance of the legendary album “The Wall.”
As you know from the album, “In The Flesh (Part 2)” is from the second act (towards the middle). The floating pig makes a cameo in this video as well! Doubleplusgood.
I told you the other day that seeing Roger Waters of Pink Floyd performing The Wall in its entirety was one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen. I stand by that, days after the concert has had a chance to absorb. I got a lot of requests to post more videos, and I am happy to comply. I can tell you that in addition to this video, “In The Flesh (part 2)” will also be coming soon. Part one has already been posted. And don’t think I’d just cheat ya by only presenting “Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2).” You’ll see the lead in with “The Happiest Days of Our Lives.”
Seeing Roger Waters of Pink Floyd perform the entire “Wall” album is an experience that can hardly be described in words, other than to say it was epic and one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen. This is how the show started… Forgive the shakiness of the video in a few parts. I was dodging latecomers getting to their seats and as the entire Madison Square Garden was filled with pot smoke (as rightly it should be at a Pink Floyd concert), so perhaps I was just a little high.
