    @William, although you write long posts about PFloyd. I disagree with your assessment.

  2. Mr.Miner Says:

    Filling the void left by Barrett’s departure in March 1968, Waters began to chart Pink Floyd’s artistic direction. He became the principal songwriter, lyricist, and co-lead vocalist (along with Gilmour, and at times, Wright), and would remain the band’s dominant creative figure until his departure in 1985.[39] He wrote the lyrics to the five Pink Floyd albums preceding his own departure, starting with The Dark Side of the Moon (1973) and ending with The Final Cut (1983), while exerting progressively more creative control over the band and its music. Every Roger Waters studio album since The Dark Side of the Moon has been a concept album[40] With lyrics written entirely by Waters, The Dark Side of the Moon was one of the most commercially successful rock albums of all time. It spent 736 straight weeks on the Billboard 200 chart until July 1988 and sold over 40 million copies worldwide. It was continuing to sell over 8,000 units every week as of 2005.[41] According to Pink Floyd biographer Glen Povey, Dark Side is the world’s second best-selling album, and the United States’ 21st best-selling album of all time.[42]

    Waters produced thematic ideas that became the impetus for the Pink Floyd concept albums The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), and The Wall (1979)—written largely by Waters—and The Final Cut (1983)—written entirely by Waters.[43] He referred or alluded to the cost of war and the loss of his father throughout his work, from “Corporal Clegg” (A Saucerful Of Secrets, 1968) and “Free Four” (Obscured By Clouds, 1972) to “Us and Them” from The Dark Side of the Moon, “When the Tigers Broke Free”, first used in the feature film, The Wall (1982), later included with “The Fletcher Memorial Home” on The Final Cut, an album dedicated to his father.[44] The theme and composition of The Wall was influenced by his upbringing in an English society depleted of men after the Second World War.[45]

    I think things like “Comfortably Numb” were the last embers of mine and Roger’s ability to work collaboratively together.
    David Gilmour[46]

  3. Mr. False Bravado Says:

    What rights did the courts give Waters for all his control?

  4. Xpun Says:

    Miner – listened to Type ii cast and really enjoyed the history lesson. Sad that such a great jam is so hit or miss (or missing) these days.

  5. Mr.Miner Says:

    cheers xpun! word 🙂

    @ William, my first post might have sounded a bit dismissive. Not meant to be. pre first tube and first coffee. my bad. I feel you, but I just think Roger’s mind conceived all the albums which are the best concept albums of all time and largely responsible for the psychedelic direction of the band imo. and i just like him more than gilmour 😉

  6. P.S.H.S Says:

    Hello bb, I’ve been extremely busy lately so not much time for interwebs conversations. About to buy a house and get hitched, maybe see a show in woosta. Tix for Friday night, if the stars align I might get to actually use the ticket.
    Anyways, I’ve given up in caring what musicians do offstage, or who is the driving force behind a band, or what waters someone’s soul ect ect.
    Just play music or else! Or else I’ll have nothing to listen to 😉

  7. BingosBrother Says:

    Just listened to the 11-22-97 Antelope for the 1st time. I’ve found a god I can finally believe in.

  8. MiA Says:

    I can’t believe for the first time?!

  9. BingosBrother Says:

    Never was a huge phish listener until I started hanging here. Well, at least, not as much as most others it seems. Thankfully, miner and the BB have provided a roadmap so I don’t have to waste time any more.

    popped in the Clifford ball DVD (disc 3) yesterday. so great to have that show on DVD and be able to relive that feeling. The whole boxset is beautifully done. the boys from VT look young and shaggy. they seem to be really feeling it during makisupa, which contains a cool jazz-space outro. then my boy and i had a full on dance party to 2001. he was feeling it and letting loose and so was I.

    Clifford Ball — 16 years ago. incredible.

    I think I need some summer 2012 phish.

  12. kayatosh Says:

    ^^^ by “my boy” I mean my son, not a phish crony.

  13. kayatosh Says:

    any one out there have extra AC tix or lodging they could use some help with. Thinking of doing fri and sat nights and getting a room at the chelsea. Is that where folks are still posting up? any other AC lodging ideas?

  14. Dr Pronoia Says:

    Kaya I’m only doing AC1 and am thinking about staying fri night instead of bussing back to NYC that night. So if you want to go in on a room I’m game especially if we can wind up wherever the BB crew is staying

  15. Dr Pronoia Says:

    Or were you asking if anyone had space in their rooms?

  16. kayatosh Says:

    DR. P: your response was on pt. I’m just trying to feel out the scene. Looks like I’ll be solo and i’d be happy to share lodging w/ you.

  17. MiA Says:

    ^^^ by “my boy” I mean my son, not a phish crony.

    The difference is only time. He may become “My son, my phish crony”

  18. MiA Says:

    I just realized I love the word crony.

    Hellz yeah my BB cronys.

  19. MiA Says:

    I’m Bored. I think I’m gonna go get high and change the oil on a whole bunch of vehicles and other motorized things around the house.

  20. ThePigSong Says:

    Checking out this Utica DVD for the first time. My Soul = raging show


  21. bob dylan Says:

    First: hello bb
    Second: fuck the police
    Third: black dudes at work “least you’re white, they woulda shot us for saying anything”

  22. kayatosh Says:

    you’re a 5-O survivor, bobby D. sounds like you and palms used some jedi mind tricks and had the good fortune of not holding.

  23. ThePigSong Says:

    What’s with the streets of Cairo teases? Seems very highschool jamband-ish to me.

  24. bob dylan Says:

    Also, I’m not sure if it’s been mentioned but a fellow phanner passed away a couple days ago. Shawn Williams (whyweigh if you’re into Phish posters) died of a disease that I’m forgetting the name. You may have seen his pictures cause he took awesome shots of the band and they made their way around the net. I only knew him thru online stuff but apparently he had a wide reach in our community so I wanted to pass that along.

  25. kayatosh Says:

    look at the 3.0 shows w/ My Soul — 12.28.09, 6.27.10, 10.20.10,10.29.10, 1.1.11. All high caliber shows.
