Watch Roger Waters Visit His Grandfather’s Grave in an Exclusive Clip From ‘Roger Waters The Wall’
In this clip, viewers see a bit of the backstage and behind-the-scenes footage from the movie — specifically a portion that finds Waters visiting the grave of his grandfather George Henry Waters, who was buried in Italy after being killed in action during World War I. He's joined by his children India, Jack and Harry, the latter of whom is a musician in his own right and toured as part of the band during the tour depicted in Roger Waters The Wall.
The Wall Live, which traversed the globe from 2010-13, played to more than 4.5 million people during more than 200 shows, making it the all-time most successful worldwide tour by a solo artist. "I’m glad we have an opportunity to share the film with people on a wider scale," Waters in pre-release material. "It has had a deep effect on my life – and I’m not the only one. This release provides an opportunity to remember all of our fallen loved ones."
Pink Floyd's classic The Wall album started out as a barbed commentary on the dark side of fame, but has evolved over time into a more meditative statement on emotional detachment — and, as Waters told Ultimate Classic Rock, a reflection on his own personal journey.
"I was determined that it should be less specifically about my predicament and my story and my journey," Waters explained, "and more a general look at what it means to those of us who become victims to what seems to be an insatiable desire by those with the reins of power in their hands to wage war on others to further whatever their aims might be."
Prior to Roger Waters The Wall's arrival on DVD/Blu-ray, the soundtrack is scheduled to make its debut Nov. 20. Check out the complete track listing below.
