  1. I did – and anyway, it’s really strange, that there was not too much advertising of the event – or was there? I wanted to see Pink Floyd, but gone sleep instead. Is it downloadable from anywhere. By the way, you can watch the whole thing again here, at AOL.

  2. I don’t know about advertising FOR the event, but there sure was a helluva lot of advertising DURING the event! Just another “corporate rock show,” if you ask me. I managed to catch Pink Floyd (the only band I wanted to see), but the commercial break during Gilmour’s solo in “Comfortably Numb” nearly killed me! If I’m not mistaken, the entire on-air time for Floyd was about 20-25 minutes. Damn! Oh well, I have to admit—it was certainly nice to see Roger again.

  3. We watched it on the BBC — no commercial breaks there… I can’t believe they would cut right in the middle of Gilmour’s solo–the horror! My favorites of the evening (though the competition wasn’t really tough):

    1. The Who
    2. Pink Floyd
    3. Paul McCartney

    People That Should Have Kept Their Mouth Shut:

    1. Josh Stone (brainless bimbo)
    2. Beeeeyonnnnsaaaay (ditto)
    3. that band with Slash (bunch of has-been wankers)
    4. Snoop Dog (zzzzzzzzzzz)
