So Live 8's getting the classic line-up of Pink Floyd, is it? Given the proper Syd-centric psychedelia Arnold Layne/See Emily Play era now has more critical cachet than Dark Side lugubriousness - well, Wizard Of Oz hasn't been available on video for a while - it's all in the eye of the beholder, unless they're really planning something surprising. You do wonder, though, how the Hyde Park kids are going to take to this. Another Brick In The Wall they could get away with, but with Roger Waters involved I fear the full neoprog effect may be in evidence. Twelve minutes of guitar exploration around Breathe complete with full light show and pyrotechnics will leave us all hoping Robbie's on next just so he has to follow it.
By the way, what was Bob's quote about only wanting bands who'd be assured of millions of record sales these days again?
