    Duck Soup in Concerto #2.

    Mozart wrote the complete music for symphonies of up to seventy different performers playing seventy instruments, writing the music for each instrument, often composing music in complicated keys.

    David Gilmoure writes and plays simplistic music for one instrument, the guitar. Over the generations a million people could write what Gilmour writes (there are thousands of songwriters today in the US alone) and equally over the years a million people could play the guitar as well as Gilmour.

    But only a very rare few, highly gifted composers can write music like Mozart or Beethoven or Mahler.

    If Gilmour ever manages to compose a complete score for a full orchcastra that sounds even remotely accomplished I might have a little more respect for his abilities.

    So you're saying Mozart was at the Potsdam Conference?

    I bet he didn't pay $25 for parking.

    He was Stalin's jingle writer. Remember, "Oh, The Kossacks, They are a Changin'"? And what about, "It's a Great Day for a Mass (and Psychotically Bloody)Purge Blues"?

    :D I think Wolfie actually came up with the propaganda campaign "The Big Red Machine"; which was later stolen by Sparky Anderson.

    Gotta admit, I'm dying to get my hands on the Dark Side and Wish You Were Here deluxe packages with the high-res audio on Blu-ray. Alas, my budget is not cooperating with me to be able to do so. :(

    Perhaps the most under rated player in the last 30 years, solid but for some reason not mentioned amongst the greats.

    His work on tunes like La Villa is mind boggling.

    I absolutely love this. Thanks, Rage.

    What a great rock vibe the Foos bring to this rendition. You can see Waters enjoying himself and feeding off their energy.

    The Foo's, and Dave Grohl, are the truest essense of love for rock and roll, past, present and future. hey just love being rock stars, playing with and honoring rock stars, and having fun.

    Shame his songs kinda suck tbh. But you can't help but love Dave anyway.

    I have been/am a huge fan of Dave Grohl. He embodies much of what I feel is missing from today's music scene.

    I caught him on Chelsea Handler's program a few weeks ago. As always, Dave was personable, irreverent, and funny. If you can't watch the entire clip, just go to 2:05 for his comments on today's rock scene, and 2:50 for his reaction to FOX' [I]Glee[/I] wanting to use Foo Fighter's music, which are brilliant.

    Now I see why Roger was over here in NYC without a show:

    [url]http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/roger-waters-bringing-the-wall-tour-to-american-baseball-stadiums-20110928[/url]

    By Rolling Stone
    September 28, 2011 8:00 AM ET

    Roger Waters is making plans to bring his highly successful Wall tour back to America in 2012. The show will hit venues he missed the first time around as well as baseball stadiums in a few big cities. "There are quite a few markets we didn't cover last time, like Austin," he says in an interview for the new issue of Rolling Stone, on stands and available through Rolling Stone All Access on September 30th. "But we want to base the tour around Saturday nights in baseball stadiums. As we speak, I'm at my office working on an outdoor version of the show."

    Pink Floyd played live versions of The Wall in 1980 and 1981, and Waters spent the last year reviving it but it's always been an indoor show. "We're going to be projecting over 140 yards," he says. "So now it's going to be 1,500 pixels wide. We've done light tests and Fenway Park and Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium just to see what the ambient light is like. And it's fine. It works. We've taken part of the Wall and the projectors into those three places."

    When the American tour ends next summer, Waters will have been on the road for nearly two years. "They're trying to get me back to Europe next year," says Waters. "But I think I'll be completely cooked by the end of July next year."

    This may be Waters' last big tour. "I'm not sure I want to go out and do the greatest hits again," he says. "Which just sucks. What I love to do is theater in a rock & roll context. I think if I did any more in the future, it might well be smaller."

    Agreed. Nice to see one of the few groups out there that still know how to rock!
