Gray Floyd: Lookin’ Old, Fellas

A couple of pictures of a reunited David Gilmour and Roger Waters have surfaced ahead of tomorrow’s historic Live 8 Concert. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to hear how these old fockers sound.

  1. Hello, I’m Jeter and a Japanese university student. Yesterday, I could watch “Live8Live” in Japan. Of course, I watched PinkFloyd!! All of the lives were excellent and enjoyable! I was impressed it very much because people around the world could see the same lives. Then, I hope this live encourages G8 to save Africa and people around the world will be interested in African poverty

  3. Jeter: I couldn’t agree more. Thanks for the input.

    I saw Pink Floyd perform Money while watching the ABC coverage. We had the TiVo going, but I really don’t even feel like going back and watching more. This article on Yahoo nailed Live 8 right on the head. And, yes, Coldplay’s effect was weakened by too many shots of Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple.

    Pink Floyd definitely seemed like they had way too many kinks to work out before something like this could ever be done again. I’m just not convinced that they could ever get over their rough history…

  5. Justin, I disagree about the kinks…for a band that hadn’t played together in 24 years, I thought they sounded dead on. They actually played excessively well and jammed the hell out of Money. I couldn’t have been more impressed by a group of guys that decided to re-unite just a few weeks ago.

    Give ’em a couple months to reconcile their differences, a couple months to rehearse and choose a working rotation, and scheudle them a Euro then American tour in late 2005/early 2006, and it’s gonna be magic.
