    Dammnit, God, you should have taken Roger Waters instead. Sometime in 1973.

    Screw you, Caio. I saw Roger last year and it was amazing. Probably better than the Floyd Show I caught in Toronto back in the day, to be honest.

    Did he talk about how he was sad and depressed, Suicidyking?

    Did he help you get through those hard times, Suicidyking?

    I hope the battle with cancer was short because it was not diagnosed until too late and was basically outweighing healthy tissue, and not because he just wilted like an english lily on a 15 degree day.

    Saw Pink Floyd at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin in 1994 (I think). SIMPLY AMAZING! During the encore the played Comfortably Numb and then suddenly the skies opened up and it started to pour! That was surreal!
    RIP!
