Yeah man, I agree. I was not a fan of Syd either and thankfully he just disappeared. I have alway just felt that David Gilmour was the real reason the band became what they are, but then again Roger attributed some of the best material, but we could argue all day on who is who in the band. Personally I was never a fan of Darkside of the Moon, I would say Relics, Animals and the Final Cut were my tops and the Wall falls in there somewhere. As I said I just wish the Band was still intact, I mean we could have seen a few more great albums and shows on top of it. I have sat and thought about what we would have seen if Ronnie Van Zant would not have passed. I mean Lynyard Skynyrd had what like 50 hits in their short time. They could have had another 50.

As far as Pink Floyd, nothing will compare to when they were together. Loved the Live 8 performance. Aside from that, I'm partial to Roger. Saw The Wall 18x across the US and Europe, met Roger several times, hung back stage at the Paris show and with the band, went to a small wedding with Dave Kilminster and most recently saw Roger perform in a 299 seat theater in the Hamptons just a few weeks ago.
Think I am going to setup my theater without the subs for now. The room is relatively small and I'm sure the 3 JTR 215RT will pack plenty of punch for concert DVDs. If I want to add them in they will be in the storage part of the basement waiting to get added. I'll definitely rely on Desertdome as soon as everything is put together.
Very cool! I cannot believe I missed the Wall tour?? I would have never have missed this back in my 20's as I tried to make every Pink Floyd show I could get to. With all this talk I just scored two David Gilmour tickets at Radio City Music Hall in April! Might be my last chance to see the old guy! Looking forward to it. Also 3 215's will blow your doors off, believe me on that. I was running 2 215RT's for a year with no subs and I had sledgehammer bass.

Like many rock stars, Waters is a bit of a narcissist but the back story about his father and grandfather works for me. Anxious to hear your impressions.
Wow really? You liked it that much? I just think it was just ok. I actually thought the video being projected onto the wall was very cool! The muisc just sounded off to me. I went back and watched the 1980 Berlin Wall show and I thought it was so much better, except for Cyndy Lauper, what a mistake that was. I am curious if Roger ever regretted having her on the tour? I am going to have to say that I think the David Gilmour show, Remember that night (Prince Albert Hall) is one of my favorite concert Blurays, I have burned a hole in that disc. Second is the Police Certifiable. Both of these are just great concert Blues. I said it recently that I have found that concert blurays have really made me appreciate allot of bands I probably would never listen to, I mean I have never really been a fan of the Eagles or Cream, but with all my gear and a nice theater to sit in, I am loving all these concerts. The Eagles Farewell tour is excellent, but I hate the Eagles, go figure!
