    I find driving is just about the best thing you can do while listening to Pink Floyd, because you can really just lose yourself in the music and feel it.

    Some albums are better for it than others though - Meddle isn't so good; better when you're parked somewhere. DSOTM reigns supreme for the driving aspect for me.
    I would think Animals is better for driving, that think just progresses and doesn't stop the whole way through. Such a groovable album.

    hmmm... I just watched the Gilmour, Wall thing again.

    this time it was filmed professionally so you can actually see what he's doing. And I've got to say, he seems a bit less "enthusiastic" like he usually is when he did it.

    I've seen a ton of his live performances and it seems he wasn't doing his usual expressions and rather "working for the sake of it".

    Oh well, it's sad.

    Or maybe he was too busy trying not to look down.

    Here's something new: Nick Mason is the most underrated member of Pink Floyd, clearly. I know that all solos, songwriting, vocals, and whatnot are more evident with Waters Gilmour Wright and crew, but Mason really helps you 'feel' the music if you know what I mean. During the whole of Dark Side his drumming just has that driving appeal to it, and in The Final Cut, particularly in Fletcher because there's not a lot of drumwork on that album, it just drives the music and gives it that oomph. Without Mason each solo would probably seem only about 2/3 as good as what it really is

    Is Mason even on Fletcher? He wasn't on some tracks for TFC.

    Edited:

    But yes I agree. I've listened to bootlegs and there are some shows where Mason's drum phrases parallel Gilmour's guitar phrases.

    He's on the tracks that DO include drumming bar the last one because apparently he couldn't play the off time signatures.

    I find that really strange seeing as he's the drummer for the most iconic Prog bands of all time yet he cant Prog drum

    That Fletcher solo... the drums themselves just tell you the emotion of it... it's hard to describe, quite phenominal really

    That's acceptable. After all, drum tracking 17 minute long pieces near perfect is NOT an easy job

    well he sounds like he is having fun... so to be honest I give most praise to Mason on that because he didn't lose his ruthless drumming in it.

    sad that they didn't carry on that style after it.

    Mason is very self-deprecating, he's never pretended to know about drums which I find funny

    Someone asked if he'd be interested in setting up a number of drum clinics once and he said he'd rather let them get taught by someone who knew how to play the drums properly

    To be honest, mason's drumming is very simple and it works beautifully

    KQED is a good channel. Lots of quality edu-tainment. They've shown PULSE on it and Gdansk. The only bad thing about PBS is having to sit through the parts where they ask you for money.

    I find that rather strange, because according to Gilmour in an interview in Paris, Mason was the only one in Pink Floud to ever get proper music lessons. Even though he did say there was only 'a little bit', compared to the rest of the band that are essentially influential gods of their instruments and taught themselves (particularly Rick who I was amazed to hear he didn't learn properly and still don't believe it, see next sentence) Mason clearly received the least credit for his work because comparatively it's awful.

    And I don't see how Rick Wright could have possibly blown his money on so many pianos, keyboards, organs and synthesizers knowing he's not going to use them to the full of their capabilities, he must have practised 24/7 if he taught himself keys

    Yeah, I think he's got the talent but is just a bit self-deprecating about it though. He can't read music - he and I think Roger made their own system of notation which was apparently really architectural-like.

    Also didn't Rick just try to stick to the hammond as often as possible?

    To be honest, in the first one it seems more realistic, meaning less obvious that it's a photoshoot and he is very anxious to be extinguished thank you very much
