    I know, I think that's what intrigues me...

    Did you ever read Gerald Scarfe's account of The Wall? Great book! It's Richard Wright I felt most sorry for. Always seemed like a decent, quiet guy who just got on with things.

    I would have loved to sit in on David Gilmour's On An Island sessions -

    And Pink Floyd's DSOTM. I maybe could have even gotten a vocal cameo as one of the laughs....

    Definately! Just to chill out and talk guitar on Gilmour's houseboat on the Thames.

    Yeah....my fascination with Roger's "meltdown" circa '77 is fueled by the fact that while I never sat in on any sessions...I was "fortunate" enough to be at one of the two shows that (allegedly) influenced the creation of "The Wall".

    My show was the 7/3/77 (I think) show at MSG. they opened with "Animals" and as Roger sat on the stage with his acoustic, playing "Pigs on the Wing" somebody in the audience shot off an M-80. His reaction was over the top. After the yelling and cursing of the crowd, he came an inch from pulling the band off the stage.

    I wasn't at the show about a week later in Toronto, during which he lured a fan to the front of the stage area and then spat on him.

    These two incidents are supposedly the seeds that led to the isolationary, cynical and bitter themes that comprised "The Wall".

    By the time "The final cut" was released, David and Roger were basically no longer speaking and Rick Wright was relegated to "session player".

    Too bad...IMO they represented the pinnicle of the genre and their creativity from "Meddle" throught "The Wall" was unparalled, again IMO.

    I'd agree. Consistant brilliance.

    I'll be honest, I also love The Final Cut. The title track in particular is quite moving. Very raw.
