So ya thought ya might like to go to the
I know I would…man, would I go to this show. In a bleedin’ heartbeat. Pink
Floyd, one of the greatest bands of all-time…in my opinion 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 (ugh), 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 love to go, but will likely be
stuck here…stuck here to fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way.
