I grew up with listening to Pink Floyd. Then later followed each individual career. Now the remaining band members have passed their 70’s, but are still going strong.
Last week I was attending a concert by Roger Waters in Krakow in Poland. Yes, his voice wasn’t as strong as it used to be, but, man, was he still performing well. It was simply a great concert. Great musicians. Great show. And great music. Roger Waters played music from the good old Pink Floyd all the way back to the “Meddle” album and up to his latest solo album “Is This the Life We Want?” The highlight was when he played almost the entire classic album “Dark Side of the Moon” .
Waters was more political than I have ever heard him before, coming down hard on untrustworthy politicians, greedy moneymakers, environmental morons and men and women abusing their power. Particular one present-day president got his but kicked. Waters’ message was unambiguous: We need to resist and try the best we can to change the world to a better place for all.
On a more personal level, the last couple of weeks have me being all over the place. Obviously Krakow, as well as Barcelona—as I have mentioned in a previous post—but also Prague, in addition to spending some time in the mountains here in Bergen. I have not been as attending here at the blog and to you my blog followers, as I would have liked to be. However, now that life is more back to the normal routine, I will get back to each and everyone of you.
