Pink floyd were the best sounding band (on TV) ...waters needs a bit more tea with honey ....never the less magical. Gilmore was simply amazing .. what a voice.
Its a nice thing when such old foes make up . I won't miss the live tour . thumbsup

Pink Floyd was brilliant.
Stevie Wonder was great, too... just wish he'd sing it himself, instead of having Rob Thomas come out and ruin "Higher Ground"

Agreed, the Floyd blew everyone else away, sounded amazing, the tears were flowing here. They ****ing reminded me of what a real band is, almost everyone else in comparison seemed on a lesser level. Just amazing. I'm going to be listening to the Floyd catalog again for the next month straight.

wow...same over here!!

floyd just stood way above everything else....amazing sound !!

finally remembered why I listened to gilmour all the time when I was learning guitar as a kid.......he´s just AWESOME !

and they had a pretty raw sound...very "rock"-like, straight forward....wooooooooh






ps: and I realized that some of the robbie williams-guitarlicks are a total pink floyd-rip off !! and sounded sooo weak in comparison........


annie lennox was cool, too

Me too, man, just in the last notes alone that I grabbed.

Thanks for the hints and sorry for being confusing with the English.
I meant to have missed almost the entire PF gig time wise.

This worlds system of sick greed really has to change.
Releasing debts is just a fraction, stealing peoples lifes and minds through surplus value being a major of cause before that.

Fukk capitalism!

Seeing Pink Floyd reminded me of why I started playing music. For the last couple of years, I've kind of forgotten what it was all about, and I've had a lot of help forgetting.

How could anyone who sees this not know that they've been had...taken for a ride by all of these pretenders that we call music today? Floyd served to remind us that 90% of everything that has happened since they played their last note together 24 years ago has been a big F'n joke.

So happy to see them together again. I hope that the experience was enough to make them set aside their differences and have a go at it again.

UK Live 8

Velvet revolver were some welcomed RAWK! (for me)
Fun to see Razorlight's drummer interviewed and on stage for the finale (I hooked him up with the band)
Always a pleasure to watch Paul McArtleys drumer Abe Laborial - he's brilliant!
The Who were the best IMHO

Abe Laboriel Jr. is McCartney's drummer.

As far as the weakness of the current generation, I'd say a lot of it can be attributed more to musical laziness born out of abuse of recording technology, as well as the fact that today's acts aren't allowed to develop, both artistically and performance-wise.

I thought Mcartney's band were amazing. The drummer was awsome. I think they made him sound extremely good. Floyd had really all had kept their chops particularly Nick Mason and Dave Gilmour. It was great to hear Roxy Music again also.

These three are neither exclusive nor of the same category. The first being a term for economics the other two standing for politics. Eventhough that you would be right to connect them in that the one provided the political consequences.

Priority and proliferation on margin effects everthing in life. Sociology and culture.
Margins need to be kept under an upper limit of understandable proportions. Everyhing above it is to be recognized of wrangling money. Usury and consequences have to be recognized when they occure.

Where there is allowed to take in millions for a single person for up to just as little like a mere phone call it must be understood that an equation for the easiness of hyperbole will be actuall labour of thirds paying the bill for the self-indulgence. Unnecessarily and compelled.
Money can easily be printed, but it will be possession for truely existing values. - of those who are left without money.

And most important of all, nobody has the right to cut slices on anybody´s work. Never Ever.

Removing the sick motives of capitalism is the only possibility to come to reason and to the counterpart that all creatur has a right to live on this planet.

Concentration always means thinning out elsewhere and capitalism defines only one single point: Concentration. Concentration of as much as possible for as little of individuals as possible.

If anyone really meant that capitialism provided democracy then there has been no true thought and view on it.

We do not have democracy, even if there is no Hitler or Stalin around to mute our talk. ( - Although there would, when it were perceived necessary. You might ask that one lady who worked for the White House as an attorney before she got banned and shoved out of profession at all. But anyway, ) regimes aren´t only controlling minds they also cause exploitation, desinformation and death.

There hasn´t been made a black book on capitalism yet, but it would list more deaths than any other phenomenon. And then all its other consequences ...

i would definitely agree that our "choices"
and our "democracy" arrive in highly eq'ed and
pre-digisted little chunks......
i can't see another system that might work,
but i know we need to have a group of
human values that precede profit -
the lack of such values is why in my opinion
so many of the younger musicians, while
generous for their participation , leave much
to de desired musically, emotionally & vibrationally -

i was trying to imagine what someone with
nina simone's gift and intellect would have
offered - but major lables don't work with
that sort of caliber of artist anymore ..................
they lie about their artists
so as to keep their jobs,


anyway
pink floyd sounded great
maybe the g8 will do what's right

be well

ABC interrupted "Money" to go to commercial: How heartbreaking! What a joy to watch them rock.

FLOYD and The WHO both sounded better than anyone else> Saddened & shocked for Cold Play, Destiny's Child, Stevie Wonder- the mixes had huge problems. Sting's mix got significantly better as it went on.

All I can say is Philly is having some serious problems with monitors and broadcast mix. Looks like MSI (Maryland Sound) is doing the PA (I recognize those speaker towers). But who is doing the TV mix? Sounds like whoever is mixing Philly starts with drums & vocals and NUTHIN' ELSE. Dave Matthews band is having huge problems in the mix- three seconds of some crap just popped out and killed the mix. I feel bad for whatever is going in and whoever is having to deal with this. dfegad

Well, then you might as well ask to remove basic human nature. Capitalism isn't a perfect economic system, but it still beats all the other alternatives. Socialism? Communism? They don't work, that's been proven quite easily. Even in those "equality" based systems, there are still haves and have nots, because no matter what there will always be an element of corruption, it is endemic to certain elements of humanity.

Capitalism works best because it addresses the basic fact of human nature, which is that all people are not created equally, at least not in the sense of motivations, aptitudes, aspirations, abilities and skills. Capitalism allows for advancement and success based on the above qualities.

Now, unfettered, laisez faire capitalism doesn't work because it invites too much abuse. The best solution is capitalism with a limited measure of governmental regulation and oversight (i.e. antitrust, environmental, etc.).

I blame this more on the demise of live gigs where up-and-comers can work full-time performing. Most of the older generation had already become outrageous performers by the time they were 20.

Catfish

China is only formally not capitalistic.
They have all it needs, surplus, cheap and reckless environmental exploitation like building megalomaniac dams without any consideration and meanwhile even cut down rainforests like no other.
The latest news from there was cleaning a village for private industry ground. They send punchers. Six people dead.

You missed out with oll of your assumptions about me, but I probably don´t about you.

News make you feel inferior, but they are not there for that and don´t mind your ignorance. They have their concerns.
Catfish. That´s a shark innit? You are a killer, right? A fittest of the surviver who mustn´t care for materialisation. The world is made for you. The rest is lazy weed anyway.

That song has not one but TWO of the greatest guitar solos ever performed. And he does those solos BETTER live.

Gilmour is a melodic genious. It`s just amazing what that guy can do with mostly pentatonic scales and a fairly simplistic style. Every note is perfect. So much more masculine and pure than those boring speedy flaky Yngwvie types.

Less is truly much much more.


This thread is making me want to practice guitar more.


I didn`t catch any of the Live8 stuff unfortunately and I`m bummed about it. Totally missed it. **** !
