I had no concept of the entire Pink Floyd album at that time. I few years later, at the still tender age of seventeen, I saw the movie based on the epic rock album, and started to grasp Roger Water’s concept of isolation and loneliness.
During the 1990’s I was as lost as the album’s main character, Pink. The songs comforted me like a child’s favourite blanket.
The mark of a truly great album is the test of time. It’s been over twenty five years since “The Wall” was released, and it sounds as new today as when it first was released.
Like myself, Roger Water’s himself has changed. he now relates his masterpiece as an anti-war message. The shows message on this topic is clear throughout the Broadway-esque live performance.
As I watch the show in San Francisco’s AT & T park, the wall being created before my eyes and the images burned into my brain, I understand the message delivered.
