I'm angry at waters right now, he's a great writer and all, but he's got a huge ego now, It make me sad inside that no reunion is going to happen.

The music will live on through the vinyl though.

^^He's always had a huge ego, hell I think it declined in the years since he left Pink Floyd.

^^I love his music and I find him to be just hilarious, you should hear his rants. We like to rant about the same things. And when I said it declined you know I meant that he doesn't seem to have as big of an ego as he did back in Pink Floyd. Dude if I wrote stuff as good as the stuff he writes I'd have a big ego too, we all would.

You know that david gilmour was an incredible guitarist but he really couldn't show off or solo that much because he was more of the guy who wanted to solo anytime he could but roger waters was more of the dark depressed singer and that gave no time for soloing and that lead to waters leaving the band.


just thought that was interesting

^^thats not true at all. Gilmour didn't show off because he didn't need to. He had plenty of solos, look at Money, Time, Dogs, Pigs (3 Different Ones), Comfortably Numb, etc. His solos fit the songs well, they weren't meant to show off.

Allright he didn't need to show off but waters didn't want him to solo, because it didn't fit waters type of music

Roger is a great musician but I cant stand him! Hes a bitch to the rest of the band.

Great musicians, no matter what.

Well I listened to I think it was Another Brick in The Wall part 2. and I got HOOKED. Wish You Were Here after that. I go through like these little stages where I hear a song, listen to it 24 hours a day for 2 days and one time I forget to restart the song and the next song on the list comes on.


Rinse and repeat

a little suggestion to you Floyd newcomers...if you liked the song Wish you Were Here, you will most definately like the album. GREAT musically and lyrically. Also, Animals is probably my favorite, again, musically fantastic as well as some amazinf lyrics.

^Good stuff...but I'd say check out Meddle, one of my favourite Floyd albums. Great stuff on that record, but can be quite trippy to a new Floyd fan.
It's not the fear of what's beyond
It's just that I might not respond
#67
1. Dark Side Of The Moon
2. The Wall / Wish you were here
3. The Division Bell
4. Meddle
5. Atom Heart Mother
And so on...

Err, all of them are really good albums...

Also, David Gilmour - In Concert is as good as DSOTM.

the most amazing thing to me is how consistant they were. i've been trying to get a hold of all the lesser known albums they put out before dark side of the moon, and everything i've heard so far is right up there with the better known stuff in my opinion. a saucerful of secrets and meddle are two of those that i'd definately recommend.
you're nearly a laugh, but you're really a cry....
#70
what gives there are no tabs for anysongs on the division bell, one of the best albums!!!!!!
We can all dream, We can all hope, We can all fantasise........COME ON PINK FLOYD TOUR!!!!!!

^I'd hardly say that The Division Bell is one of the best (although it's my number 1 album art). I find the post-Waters era to be extremely lame compared to Waters. Also the music is less guitar-intensive, and the guitar parts don't all use basic chords. It would be pretty hard to tab all that out by ear.
#72
i did for coming back to life and a great day for freedom. Not tried any others though. Heared about live8?

the only credit they get is for the people who are like " darkside of the moon is a great cd" but in my opinon wish you were here and piper at the gates of dawn are a little bit better w/ the wall

so, so you think you can tell,
heaven from hell?
blue skies from pain?
can you tell a green field, from a cold steel rail?
a smile from a veil?
do you think you can tell,
did they get you to trade,
your heroes for ghosts?
hot ashes for trees?
hot air for a cool breeze?
cold comfort for change?
and did you exchange,
a walk-on part in the war, for a lead role in a cage?

how, how i wish you were here.
were just two lost souls swimmin in a fish bowl,
year after year
running over the same old ground,
what have we found?
the same old fears.
wish you were here.

I know this song is about Syd, but I haven't really been able to pull any meaning from it except:

Did you exchange
a walk-on part in the, for a lead role in the cage

Could someone please help me out?

Never in my life have i ever listened to music with such feeling as the songs ive heard from Pink Floyd. Some have brought me to tears , the feeling portaited in some of there guitar solos...........mind blowing and there messages are mind blowing too. The sole reason i ever picked up an elect guitar was from hearing CN outro .

A song i dont hear to much on in here is "On the turning away"


Pink Floyd........Rock On

aight, my dad explained this to me a little while back, and this is what i can remember.

its talking about the draft to the war and if you refuse to go, they will put you in jail. i might not have explained that 100% but i hope you can get the idea.

Actually I am pretty sure it's not about Syd. David Gilmour explained the meaning behind "Wish You were here" in the "Classic Albums - Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of Moon" DVD. He said after DSOTM came out Pink Floyd became this monster platnum band and were getting away from their true meaning of playing. He said we made Wish you were here because we weren't. Now, I am not sure if he mean't the album or just the song but since the album is named after the song I am betting that is what he mean't. So according to the writer of the song it wasn't about Syd. If you want to argue just buy the DVD.
