2016 Desert Trip

Sympathy for the Devil

#DesertTrip #DesertTrip2016 @DesertTripIndio @RollingStones @rogerwaters

I just got back from an unforgettable weekend down in the Palm Springs area of Southern California. The draw of course was Desert Trip, three nights featuring Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Paul McCartney, The Who, and Roger Waters. I’ll post photos from each over the next few weeks. For now, I’ll tease you with two: The Rolling Stones at the beginning of “Sympathy for the Devil” and Roger Waters during “Eclipse”.

Although nothing can come close to describing the amazingness of the Roger Waters’ set–not photos, video, or words–you really had to be in the middle of it to fully appreciate what he orchestrated, here is a decent write up in LA Times.

Happy Birthday to Roger Waters!

May he live another 69 years and continue to put on the most amazing shows the world has ever seen.

Roger Waters – The Wall – Quebec

From the above video it appears that the grand finale in Quebec this past weekend of The Wall was quite spectacular (to put it mildly).

Tonight is the final performance of The Wall to be held on The Plains of Abraham (Les Plaines D’Abraham) in Quebec City. Will it be the last concert of Roger Waters ever? I don’t know. I hope not.

I wish I was going to be there. I took today’s photo of The Plains of Abraham from my hotel room in Quebec eight years ago. The river in the background is the Saint Lawrence (Saint-Laurent).

60 Minutes video on Roger Waters and The Wall

Since my other posts on the subject of Roger Waters are getting loads of views I thought I’d share with you the actual piece that CBS’s 60 Minutes did on The Wall in case you missed it. I’m not sure how long this will be available. Comment if it on longer works so I can take it down.

Note that I have additional high resolution photos and HD video of Roger Waters on my other blog.

Tonight (May 20, 2012) Roger Waters and his amazing production of The Wall will be featured on 60 Minutes. If you have access to CBS, check it out. Hopefully, those without access can view it on the internet tomorrow.
