Last night (January 14th), former Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters, appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to discuss his plans for bringing his Wall tour to Europe, his relief and benefit work, and how the meanings of Pink Floyd lyrics have changed over the years.
Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi blew minds of New Jersey-ians. R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe came out of retirement. Eddie Vedder joined Roger Waters for a Pink Floyd classic. Kanye West wore a kilt – which soon got it’s own Twitter handle (and over 1,000 followers!). Jay-Z was a no-show. And, apparently, Paul McCartney has joined a new band… with the surviving members of Nirvana. It all was part of 12.12.12 The Concert For Sandy Relief benefitting the Robin Hood Foundation.
Looks like Paul McCartney and Dave Grohl won’t be the only duet tonight at NYC’s 12-12-12 Concert for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines has covered Roger Waters route for an upcoming documentary surrounding the nearly 20-year-long West Memphis Three ordeal. Maines, who had been an outspoken opponent of the imprisonment of the three men, recorded a version of the Pink Floyd classic “Mother” for the documentary West of Memphis: Voices of Justice, which is coming out on January 15th.
Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters turned rock’n'roll theater into real-life entertainment with his top-grossing “The Wall” tour, but now the singer/bassist will try his hand at professional theater.
A new technique to convert DVDs into smartphone apps has been created, and first on the development company’s list is “David Gilmour In Concert,” featuring Gilmour’s concert at London’s Royal Festival Hall in 2001.
Waters, who just wrapped up a huge three year tour where he performed Pink Floyd’s The Wall every night, will be playing in relatively stripped down surroundings. Coincidentally, the one time when Waters performed with Helm was at Waters’ one-off performance of The Wall in Germany on July 21, 1990.
In an email to Sheeran, Nick Mason wrote: “Hi Ed, Really great experience, many thanks for a great performance. And a great day out! Following a bit of post show stuff with some of the PF fans getting outraged at people not realising the song was not your new release, I just wanted to go on record to suggest they chill on this.

Though the U.S. charts don’t show the same influence, the Olympics effect is out in full force on on the U.K. charts this week.
