On A Pink Island With A Floyd Flag

(Enviado por WorldX)

I love Pink Floyd and it was great to see them perform together again for the Live8 gig, although I feel Roger Waters singing days are coming to a close.

It was also great to hear David Gilmour's 3rd solo album 'On An Island', his voice on the other hand hardly ages at all. It really is a great album and the closest thing to a Gilmour Floyd cd I can imagine.

Roger Waters solo stuff, especially Amused To Death and The Pros and Cons Of Hitchiking, are amongst my favourite albums ever, along with the Waters fueled Pink projects such as Animals, The Wall and The Final Cut.

So I hear this year Mr Waters is on tour again and this is very exciting news. So if you are lucky enough in 2006 you can catch Roger and David in separate places and almost imagine Floyd together again, we just need Rick Wright to release another album now!

Roger is not coming to Spain.....that´s too sad, even if I wouldn´t be able to go anyway.... In the "in the flesh" album/dvd he seems to sing a little bit better. That dvd is simply awsome, the band is great, the covers are gorgeous...

In The Flesh is cool, you are right ;)

I like The Pros and Cons Of Hitchiking very much...
