Flash forward to tonight when I’ll be seeing Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets at the Masonic in San Francisco. Can’t wait.

A year and a half ago…

The Beatles’ legend turns 75 today. He was only 74 when I took today’s photo last October.

Happy Inauguration Day

Pigs (Three Different Ones) played by Roger Waters @ Desert Trip

@realDonaldTrump #DesertTrip #DesertTrip2016 @DesertTripIndio @rogerwaters #inauguration

Roger Waters wrote “Pigs” in 1977 (for Pink Floyd). Everyone laughed when he performed it at Desert Trip with these images of Trump on the stage that had been transformed from the “Animals” cover. Everyone laughed because they didn’t imagine Trump would actually be elected.

Today, 40 years later, the words seem more applicable than ever. And by “today” I don’t mean “now”, I mean “TODAY”, January 20, 2017.

“Big man, pig man, ha ha, charade you are
You well heeled big wheel, ha ha, charade you are
And when your hand is on your heart
You’re nearly a good laugh
Almost a joker
With your head down in the pig bin
Saying “keep on digging”
Pig stain on your fat chin
What do you hope to find?
When you’re down in the pig mine
You’re nearly a laugh
You’re nearly a laugh
But you’re really a cry.

You’re nearly a good laugh
Almost worth a quick grin
You like the feel of steel
You’re hot stuff with a hat pin
And good fun with a hand gun
You’re nearly a laugh
You’re nearly a laugh
But you’re really a cry.
Hey you White House, ha ha, charade you are”
