Have You Got It Yet The Story of Syd Barrett and Pink Floyd - Spread with Poster

Syd Barrett Film HYGIY? Physical & Digital Release Announced

Syd Barrett Film “Have You Got It Yet: The Story of Syd Barrett and Pink Floyd” will be physically released on 19th July 2024. It will also be available to stream digitally. Having watched the documentary film in the cinema, I am very excited to get a copy of this unmissable release. The documentary story is told in the most respectful way about Syd rather than the usual drug and sensationalist slant. Syd had undiagnosed mental conditions that are spoken about much more in 2024 than back in the 1960s. He is often idolised for his creativity and drug use together, but he was very creative without the drugs. The drugs were not helpful at all. Pre-Order your copy from Amazon UK.

Roger Waters Record Store Day 2024 DSotM Redux

Roger Waters Record Store Day Release April 2024

Roger Waters is supporting Record Store Day 2024 by releasing a picture disc edition of his Dark Side of the Moon Redux. The event takes place annually and allows artists and fans alike to support independent stores selling Vinyl in the UK and USA. This year’s event takes place on 20th April 2024. There will only be 3,000 copies of this picture disc available meaning this is very much a collectors item. Each of them is individually numbered so highly collectable indeed. There were 9 separate coloured versions of the album available when originally released and this is an additional one. Some of the other coloured ones had less than 3,000. The printing technique looks fantastic and uses technology similar to Dark Side 50th Anniversary Edition picture disc which is released the day before on 19th April 2024. If you have an amazing looking record you don’t want it hidden...

Roger Waters with Jim Ladd

Jim Ladd Passes Away, Roger Waters Reflects

Jim Ladd, the American disc jockey, radio producer and writer, has passed away from a heart attack on 16th December 2023. Jim Ladd and Roger Waters were involved primarily through their collaboration on Roger Waters’ album “Radio K.A.O.S.,” released in 1987. In this concept album, Jim Ladd’s voice is featured, providing spoken segments and playing a character within the album’s narrative. This inclusion of a real-life radio personality added a layer of authenticity and depth to the album’s exploration of communication and media themes. Beyond “Radio K.A.O.S.,” their professional relationship was marked by mutual respect and shared artistic sensibilities. Ladd was known for his appreciation and understanding of Waters’ music, often featuring it on his radio shows. This helped in bringing Waters’ solo work to a wider audience, especially in the United States where Ladd’s influence in the rock music radio scene was significant.

Harry Waters Discusses his Father Roger Waters Firing Him

Harry Waters, son of Roger Waters, did an interview with Rolling Stone magazine and mentioned that time Roger fired him from his touring band. In late 2016, Roger Waters informed his son, Harry Waters, at Harry’s home in Santa Monica, California, that he would no longer be part of his band for the upcoming Us + Them tour. Harry, who had been playing keyboards and organ in his father’s band for 14 years, was dismissed along with almost all other band members except two. The two were keyboardist Jon Carin and guitarist Dave Kilminster. Harry said, “I was fired, it was pretty miserable.” Why Was Harry Waters Fired? “I think he just wanted a change of blood, something new, something fresh,” Waters says. “I’m not sure of his exact reasoning”. Despite this, Harry continued to embrace his father’s music. He recently completed a tour with Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog...

Roger Waters Concert in Montevideo Was A Rainy Affair

Roger Waters concert at Estadio Centenario in Montevideo, Uruguay was a rainy affair. The arena tour didn’t suffer the consequences of rain thankfully. However, now that Roger is back to doing outdoor concerts to large audiences, he is getting lots of rain pouring down on him. Roger Water’s guitarist David Kilminster reported that his equipment had been damaged by the storms. He said on his Twitter, “Apologies for the technical problems, but apparently if you throw a bucket of water over all my guitar pedals, cables, effects switcher etc then they really don’t like it…”. The Concert, on the 17th November 2023, is one of the final performances of the rather epic This Is Not A Drill Tour 2023. Roger Waters Tour 2024? There are 8 concerts remaining on the current Roger Waters tour. We will then have to wait and see what is announced next. I am hoping he...
