    From outsidethewall.net, a poem by roger waters:

    A new poem? A new Song? A Plea to reunite the band?

    In a Press release recently announcing the relocation of Roger's show in Israel,
    Roger submitted a poem that he written inspired by watching The Bands Last
    Waltz. Its a wonderful piece, and to us its plain as day what it means, but we do
    not think for you.

    A few weeks ago I watched again Martin Scorsese's film which documented
    the last concert by The Band and I was inspired to write a few words i see
    fitting:

    The Last Waltz

    I just want that thing
    When voices join in harmony
    And in that fleeting moment,
    Meaning coalesces on the ear,
    All dark, dissolving, clouds the alleyways no more
    And fresh bread scent of home pervades the air

    No sandal soles
    In dust of broken homes
    Nor callused toes peep bloody from the garment hem,
    And all the big parades
    And shock and awe
    And swagger on the carrier decks and medals
    Jangle helpless in the face of what is fair

    I just want that thing
    When friends draw in, some living some begone,
    Some brittle, none forgotten
    All beloved everyone.

    Then dash the glass into the fire
    Then well up unashamed my heart
    Beyond the reach of fear
    Of faith, blind, bigoted and drear

    And then across the great divide
    Rise men and women unafraid
    To dash in loss their bracelets at the wall,
    And hearing them
    Hope holds me in its thrall.

    I just want that thing
    When empathy prevails
    When man evolves beyond the crass
    And reason comes of age
    When dogma, cant, and witchcraft
    All are banished to the past
    When voices join in harmony at last.

    All are banished to the past
    When voices join in harmony at last.

    Roger Waters
    Pink Floyd. Coachella 2011. Preeze.
    the choice is yours, and yours alone.

    Sadly enough, I selected "I don't care" because I'm so pissed off at Waters at this point. Pink Floyd has forever been my favorite band of all time besides David Bowie, but I'm pretty annoyed with Waters. And I also think The Wall is one of the worst Floyd albums, but I know that's not a popular opinion.

    edit: I must admit that if he played Gunner's Dream with Raphael Ravenscroft and an orchestra, it would be the happiest moment of my life.

    Your calling The Wall crap?

    Revolutionize rock and roll (again), change up your style a little and when people start calling your music crap and then we will talk. Until then.....

    i think its the fact that the singles from it are so so so good that people overlook the rest of it which in my opinion doesn't deserve the popularity and acclaim its received. and i fucking love pink floyd

    david gilmour performing floyd material - another story entirely.

    If we're going to start banning musicians on account of their douchery we're going to have a hard time filling a poster.

    I would be in favor of this, but that's because I missed '08 due to pointless grad school b.s.

    Animals + Wish You Were Here would obviously be much more awesome.

    Even though he IS dbag, footage from his tour looks VERY intriguing. I voted yes.

    FOUR TET. HOT CHIP. SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO. BOOKA SHADE. LEE SCRATCH PERRY. BEACH HOUSE.

    Richie Hawtin. James Blake. Loco Dice.
