Pink Floyd at Live8


So ya thought ya might like to go to the

I know a lot of people would, man!

Would I go to this show?

Probably, yeah... having been recently introduced to their music (Thanks Saki)

Pink Floyd, nominated one of the greatest bands of all-time… and in the opinion of many, the SECOND greatest band of all time AFTER the Beatles
(yes, better than the Rolling Stones and Dylan and fricken Coldplay) is going to reunite for the first time in 24 years at Bob Geldof’s Live8 concert series to benefit Africa.

The concert is one of five taking place around the world on July 2. Other performers will be Madonna (umm...), REM (cool), U2 (cool), Sir Paul McCartney (ok, but his Superbowl concert thing was so bad), Sir Elton John (yeah, cool), Coldplay (no comment) and Robbie Williams (whatever).

Truly it is great to see all this attention paid to Africa. It’s about time. It seems like we’re in about a 20 year cycle anyway, given the last big event of this type was the We Are the World thing (now we know what Michael meant by “We are the children”. OK, bad joke. The guy was acquitted after all).

Anyway, amazing stuff. Pink Floyd reuniting. I’m trembling it’s so cool. And I would like to go, but will likely be stuck here… erm... posting on my blog...
