7 thoughts on “A Tribute To The Wall”

  1. um, i don’t. So remember to kick me if you meet me on the street.
    My excuse: an older brother forced me to watch it when i was six, which completely put me off pink floyd for life. And nutella too, but that’s another story.

  2. Overblown, pompous… possibly. But i wouldn’t be so harsh on The Wall, it blew minds world-wide back in the eighties. It just sorta lose validity now, imo. One more time: i rather prefer the earlier Pink Floyd. However, i’d like to listen to the Colaiuta/Dunbar tribute (just curious…)

  3. I’m afraid i’m not too keen on their stuff either – remember some version of it done at the brandenburg gate which was shown on the telly around 89-90; just thought it was absurd / obscene that this twat Waters was claiming some sort of “influence” or even relevance for the Berlin wall coming down.

  4. Well, i don’t think the tribute to “The Wall” is gonna be a big hit, but, It’s not an uninteresting cd, because i am priity sure, from my short experience
    of listening Frank Zappa (from my dad and mom cd’s) , Vinnie Colaiuta and Aynsley Dunbar will make a good version.

  5. I think I went off Pink Floyd after sitting through what seemed like hours of the tedious Atom Heart Mother awaiting Zappa/Mothers at the Bath Festival. The programmed running order had been abandoned and no one knew who was going to be on when (Canned Heat for breakfast anyone?) …and then it was not even the real Mothers but the Volman/Kaylan variation :(

  6. Hmmm. Don’t know about the tribute; those projects rarely work (I think the Stone Free – Hendrix one is the only one I’ve really enjoyed). But I enjoy Floyd, and I enjoy The Wall. (I think it’s an age thing, Barry.)

    “Boring, overblown, pompous, self-important and musically uninteresting!”
    Perhaps… So was “Tommy”. So was ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’. That didn’t necessarily make them less fun…
