Cornwall ON – Could legendary ban Pink Floyd’s two main men be reuniting for the 30th anniversary of The Wall?
Roger Waters and David Gilmour buried the hatchet to perform at a charity concert recently.
Gilmour and Waters were originally planning to play three songs. But one attendee, British financier Arpad Busson, was so taken with the performance, he donated £50,000 to get them to play “Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2.” “Some other people were also saying they’d give £200,000 for them to play one more song,” Freud adds. “People were crying — really! I know it sounds corny, but it was magic.
In 1994 I had the luck to land tix to David Gilmour at the old Montreal Forum. Mick Ralphs from bad company stood in for Roger. Shortly thereafter Mr. Waters came to Montreal, to the same venue, to support his new solo album, “The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking” the second set was a shorter version of the wall and his guitarist that night was a chap by the name of Clapton. Not bad, couldn’t sing worth much, but then neither can Mr. Waters.
It truly was one of the greatest concerts I ever personally was at. It should be historic musically if these two can come together again. It reminds me a bit of the movie Excalibur; at the end when Arthur and Lancelot fight together one last time. Musically it should be amazing if these two can get it together.
