Since its release in 1979, Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' has journeyed all over the world, playing to audiences during numerous tours (and even being turned into a movie). But through all its guises, the album's song cycle has remained essentially the same -- until recently, that is.
It's no secret that Roger Waters is no fan of war. His father's death in World War II, coming when Waters was but five months old, were integral to Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' and 'The Final Cut.' In a new interview, he rails against 60 years of what he considers to be unnecessary wars.
It's hard to find anyone better than New Jersey's home state hero Bruce Springsteen when it comes to opening a benefit show for victims of the East Coast's Hurricane Sandy. As expected, the inspirational rocker kicked off the '12-12-12' benefit on a high note, and he welcomed a fellow New Jersey favorite in Jon Bon Jovi to raise the excitement level even higher. Springsteen and a Roger Waters-Eddie Vedder collaboration were among the early highlights of the '12-12-12' benefit.
Roger Waters waded into the world of foreign relations yesterday (Nov 29) when he addressed the United Nations. In a 25-minute speech, he spoke out against alleged violations of international law by Israel against the Palestinian people.
As the child of a soldier who perished in World War II, Roger Waters has always had a personal understanding of the veteran's plight, and it's been a part of his music for years -- as a member of Pink Floyd as well as a solo artist. On Thursday (Nov. 8), that commitment was reflected again in a poignant, once-in-a-lifetime performance.
Two rock legends will lend their time for a good cause next week. Roger Waters and Bruce Springsteen will perform at the 6th annual 'Stand Up for Heroes' concert, a night of music and comedy that will take place Nov. 8 at the Beacon Theatre in New York.
