Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by Ving, Aug 28, 2015.
Saw it at the ballpark in Philly. Most likely was the best stadium production ever.
Actually, a high school friend of mine (Robbie Wycoff) sang the Dave Gilmour parts on the last tour and is in this movie....
I saw The Wall when he did it in Berlin in 1990 - Best fucking show I have ever seen! 300K people....insane! I imagine the production got much better since then.
Amazing live show. Can't wait to see this
Greatest album of all time. yes, Dave's playing is brilliant and his voice is awesome (and his occasional writing) but FLOYD without Roger is a fucking joke. Always has been. In fairness, they really do need each other to be stellar. Roger is a lyrical god and wrote way more of the music than most people realize (though admittedly Dave's purty guitar and sometimes vocals makes it all the better).
I saw the updated version of the Tour and it was great. Didn't know there was going to be a "film" of it.
i also saw Roger back on his In the Flesh Tour and it was fantastic. Set the Controls and Dogs in it's entirety for the WIN.
Saw him at the Spectrum in the 80's pro's and con's of hitchhiking tour. One of the best shows I ever saw.
I missed Pros and Cons and a close friend had front row for Radio Chaos (bastard). i was a broke young bum at the time and couldn't afford to go. The WALL changed my life when I was 12 and 35 years later nothing has ever topped it for me. Love, love, love the album, movie and everything about it and this new film looks amazing.
I also saw the Australian Pink Floyd do the whole WALL show back before I saw Roger's updated version. That was incredible too. Roger is one of my biggest heroes, but so is Dave and the WALL is the very best of ALL worlds when it comes to FLOYD, IMO.
That Berlin show was SO mammoth that is was almost hard to take in visually (plus, most of the guest spots were horrible). of course I mean watching the video, since I wasn't actually there like you were. Compared to the 1980 Tour (which floats around on bootlegs) and the Berlin version the updated show was far better, though the overall concept/look was still the same. It was a great production and incredible to see and this film looks like so much more than just a great concert film. Sept 29th can't come soon enough.
Thanks for the heads up.
Huge Dave fan. Huge whining-singer hater. I'll pass.
Ah, the Roger haters are incapable of just walking past without a slam or two. He is a god and Dave is just a more subtle megalomaniac.
I think it comes down to what you prefer.. a very good musician, or someone who became pretty much the creative core of the band.
This is why they needed each other (and Wright as well).
I think in the Octagon, I would pick Waters. He looks wiry.
60 Minutes did a great piece on Roger:
You should stick with Kid Rock, he loves 'Merica
Syd Barrett>Dave>Roger>Nick>the drummer. For me anyway.
Nick is the drummer and although Syd was extremely creative and influential, he decided to fry his brain with LSD so we'll never know.
Meddle/Dark Side/WYWH/Animals/the Wall/Final Cut>>>>>>>>Piper & his solo stuff, which is about we have to go on here.
ok - I would go see that
Yeah I know there's not much Syd stuff out there, and I do love all Floyd, but to me the beginnings of the band were the most special to me. I know after Syd they were much more influential and all of that, I just tend to like the early stuff best. Especially songs like Astronomy Domine
All them blocks stretching foul pole to foul pole being used as an ultra hd screen in a practically pitch black stadium was fucking awesome.
