Roger’s, of course. I was wondering how the prism was made, it’s all lasers, 100W worth.

That’s a lot of laser. Good read.

Nick reflects, a reflective Nick.

“It was fun to play the shows,” Mason says, “because in some ways it was the pinnacle of a Floyd show. It was one of those moments where a rock show was taken to a different level. When Roger gets his Broadway [musical version of ‘The Wall’] done eventually, it could work really well. It does have quite a lot of the structure there already.”

Roger Waters & The Wall Here’s the news you have been waiting for. Roger’s Manager has been in touch to OFFICIALLY confirm that Roger is looking at touring The Wall in 2010 & 2011. Other sources have told us that currently 8 cities are penciled in, but going by past experience this could well be expanded at a later date. Keep tuned to A Fleeting Glimpse for all the tour news!

In The Studio with Redbeard, a show discussing the events that take place while classic rock albums were being made, has been around for a very long time, it’s always a good listen. I’ve been listening to his radio show for as long as I have loved music. There is a very recent two-parter pertaining to The Wall.

A different sort of Wall.

The Wall now…

SNAKING ALONG, cutting through fields and streets, yards and gardens, the 28-mile-long Berlin Wall stood as a border between East and West Berlin from 1961 to 1989.

That all changed on Nov. 9, 1989, when an inexact translation, a confused border guard and a natural longing for a better life opened a hole in that wall that would eventually end the Cold War.

Moog Taurus bass pedals

Man, I could use these, and I’m a drummer!

I love that spacey other-worldliness sound of the Moog oscillator. So weird…and powerful.

Phish puts on a good show, eh? That is some serious lightpower.

Band sounds quite tight as well.

People getting a chance to play Neil Peart’s old kit

Posted in Interesting links with tags , , , , , on November 19, 2009 by mvl

Cool, due to work stuff, can’t be there to look at and possibly play a kit that the sound of which has been in my ears for years.

I like the way drums look, Neil seems to have also had a taste for the aesthetic of the drumset, shapes, sizes and contrasts.
