Tagged: Roger Waters Memoirs

Roger Waters Memoirs have been in the works since Covid where he found himself with a lot of time on his hands. Roger put the time to good use and captured his story from over the years.

So far, we know the following about Roger’s memoirs.

  • They are called I’ll See You On The Dark Side Of The Moon: Memoirs Of A Lanky Prick.
  • He has recorded an audio book version of them.
  • Based on interviews, the memoirs could get a bit nasty about things in the past such as Pink Floyd breaking up. Roger said recently on the topic of songwriting.
  • They [David and Wick] have no ideas, not a single one between them. They never have had, and that drives them crazy.
  • Roger was reading from his autobiographic memoirs at the London Palladium shows recently in October 2023
  • It is quite possible the memoirs will be released next year in 2024 some time

Roger Waters Tour 2024

Roger Waters Tour Set To Conclude. What Next?

Roger Waters Tour is coming to an end soon in December. After an amazing run of concerts which started in July 2022, This Is Not A Drill Tour is set to conclude on 9th December 2023. The final venue is Estadio Olimpico in Ecuador. The tour was billed Roger’s “first farewell tour” jokingly referring to the trend of older artists saying its their last, then doing more! The original tour schedule, for Roger Waters’ seventh solo tour, was supposed to start around the time of Covid. This was postponed. The world went into turmoil. There would be further turmoil during this tour, with controversies being reported in the media. What will 2024 bring? Memoirs, perhaps a REDUX tour given the cost of the two nights at London Palladium, an unlikely extension of the This Is Not A Drill tour? A Tour with Controversy Accusations of Roger Waters Antisemitism There have...

Roger Waters Track by Track Video from London Palladium

Roger Waters London Palladium Video – Watch Now

Roger Waters and his 14 strong army of musicians performed Dark Side of the Moon Redux at The London Palladium. It divided opinion in the media and online from fans in the two shows Sunday and Monday. The show was split in two. The first half saw Roger talking at the audience at length about Julian Assange and Donald his pet duck. Crazy stuff. He also talked about his forthcoming memoirs. Title is “I’ll See You On The Dark Side Of The Moon: Memoirs Of A Lanky Prick”. The second half was the Dark Side performance that fans had paid big money to watch. Some VIP packages allowed fans to obtain lots of goodies like posters. Tickets cost eye watering amounts on the primary ticket website. Anyway, part of the evening, this 20 minute video, was played for the audience. The video explains some of the new work that Roger...

Roger Waters Performs at The London Palladium

London West End showman Roger Waters has performed his Dark Side of the Moon Redux at a popular theatre in Soho. The London Palladium saw 2,286 people watching a very intimate show in a relatively small venue, much smaller than the 20k people who saw him down the river at the London O2 Arena recently. The first “set” featured Roger talking a lot, including reading long passages from his forthcoming memoirs which is more about his past pets rather than tales of the rock ‘n’ roll variety. Brain Damage reported that Roger said it is called “I’ll See You On The Dark Side Of The Moon: Memoirs Of A Lanky Prick”. Some fans may have been quite disappointed about having to sit through an hour of Roger rambling on about his pet duck Donald for 20 minutes plus other tales. He does tend to go on a bit at his...

Review: Roger Waters Dark Side of the Moon Redux 2023 ★★★★☆

Rating: ★★★★☆ Friday 6th October is the day that Roger Waters releases his much discussed Dark Side of the Moon Redux edition. This is a completely stripped down version of the classic magnum opus Dark Side of the Moon recorded by Pink Floyd, which became one of the best selling albums of all time, propelling Pink Floyd into the stratosphere of fame, success, money and sadly, the beginning of the end for the band. Order limited edition version from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com Although Pink Floyd would go on to record Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall and The Final Cut, the Dark Side of the Moon delivered on the band’s goal of becoming a massively successful group. There was nothing really left for them to prove after Dark Side. Given that Dark Side was always going to be hard album to follow for Pink Floyd, it is odd then that Roger chose...

Roger Waters Time Redux Version on Streaming Platforms Now

You can now listen to Roger Waters’ Redux version of Time from his forthcoming The Dark Side of the Moon Redux on streaming platforms like Spotify, YouTube below and others. It joins Money which was released recently. Having listened to both tracks I actually quite like the re-interpretation of the classic recordings. Personally, I think the Pink Floyd versions are much better to “listen to”, but these two new tracks I have heard so far give much more space to the lyrics rather than the music. Very sparse indeed. Pre-order from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com Roger will be performing the reimagined album at the London Palladium for two nights only in London on 8/9 October 2023. Tickets for those shows were very limited indeed and sold very quickly. Who knows if he will perform the shows in other locations, he does have the rest of his current tour to finish so is quite busy....

Roger Waters Re-Records Dark Side of the Moon

Roger Waters has revealed that he has re-recorded Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon album, and hopes to release it in May 2023, as a lavish vinyl accompanied by a concert! He has re-recorded it from scratch, without the involvement or even knowledge of any of his old band mates. Roger also recently released his new recording of Comfortably Numb, with the guitar solos removed, and replaced by vocals. It was released on his Lockdown Sessions release. He’s still polishing the final details but it should be released as a “lavish vinyl” and promoted with a concert. Given that Roger left Pink Floyd in the 1980s and doesn’t own the Pink Floyd name, it will very likely be released under his own name. Given The Dark Side of the Moon is one of the best selling albums of all time and regarded very highly by fans, it does beg...
