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.
Waters dont need no education
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
But yes I agree. I've listened to bootlegs and there are some shows where Mason's drum phrases parallel Gilmour's guitar phrases.
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
mason's best drumming is on Animals imo.
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.
But that's the charm of Pink Floyd. They change but stay true each album
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
yeah he's like the Ringo of Floyd. Plenty of heart.
Don't worry about AK'z, I can no longer see my animals album due to all the semen he's ejected onto it
Atom Face Mother
They need to do another re-broadcast of this.
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.
So guys, any plans on when we are going to watch Gdansk on stream?
I used to have PULSE recorded on my PVR, but it got mysteriously deleted.
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
Also didn't Rick just try to stick to the hammond as often as possible?
Nick's drumming wasn't awful, he just dumbed it down for too long.
Today I helped with putting the ice on my local ice rink.
I had Prism playing on my iPod.
All the cold seemed to disappear.
Found this sitting in a record shop before it closed, the owner said it had been there for less than 24 hours. I Looked up the vinyl code and it's an original release of Wish You Were Here.
The pride and joy of my vinyl collection.
Excuse blurquality image due to phone camera.
yeah they have a copy in my record store, I should pick that up.
Bands like Pink Floyd are why I should aquire gramophone LPs
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
I have to say, listening to Comfortably Numb while picking up garbage in my neighborhood makes the day go by better.
I prefer the UK one, gets across the pain better of the businessman which suits better as I've always seen the businessman to be a semi-representation of Barret
