A year ago, David Gilmour and Nick Mason of Pink Floyd joined Roger Waters onstage in London during a performance of The Wall.
The treat made headlines around the globe, delighting Floyd fans everywhere.
This week, a video was released that shows the behind-the-scenes footage of how that unlikely collaboration came about. It’s an elegant, simple, black & white video with no narration, allowing the visuals and the music icons’ voices themselves to tell the story.
It concludes with Waters addressing the crowd after the gig:
“30 years ago, when David, Nick and I first did this, I was a rather grumpy person and disaffected with rock audiences…but all that’s changed. I could not be happier to be in this room with these guys.”
If you’re in North America, make sure to catch one of Waters’ gigs this summer, as he has pretty definitively stated that he plans to retire after this string of The Wall performances. Don’t miss out. More info at the link below:
