Korn did an admirable job of all three parts of Another Brick in the Wall (although the guitar solo's tone was really weak).

I also liked Class of 2000's version of "Another Brick in the Wall Pt II".

I love a lot of Pink Floyd (especially the Post-Waters stuff).

I've been trying to get my band to pick up "Young Lust" and "Run Like Hell".

The first Pink Floyd I ever listened to was actually not even an album. It was the film, Pink Floyd The Wall.

The meaning kind of escaped me, all I really remember of the first viewing is a jumbled mess of colors and beautiful music. Anyways.... I got to listening to a lot of their other stuff, watching/listening to The Wall again so I could finally understand it better.

Pink Floyd is amazing, I don't think I've ever not been able to enjoy them. (And The Wall remains my favorite album of all time and one of my favorite films.)

I have lately been listening to their early stuff like Piper at the Gates of Dawn and Saucerful Of Secrets. Actually bought a record player just so I can start listening to Floyd the way it was meant to be heard. My friend owns a Vintage Record/Video game/odd stuff store here in town, and I bought 4 PF Albums from him, one of them being a first print edition of Saucerful of secrets. Also have a couple concert films, 2 being solo films of David Gilmour from his recent On an Island tour back in 06. Also have the P.U.L.S.E. Concert dvd AND the Live at Pompeii dvd too. have a blanket/poster of the DSOTM logo hanging on my wall. Know most of the bass tabs from DSOTM, The Wall, Meddle, Atom Heart Mother and Obscured by Clouds. Oh jeez, I could go on forever with what I have.

I'm a big fan of the film (and all of Alan Parker's work) but did you know that Roger Waters had MANY problems with Parker's vision of (what was essentially) his (Waters') opus. He was very outspoken about his dislike of the liberties Parker took and the story changes made. And the photo on the back of The Final Cut, of the british officer with the movie reel under his arm and a knife in his back was more than subtly symbolic of Waters' feelings. As was the double (if not triple) entendre title of that album.

All in all it was just another brick in the wall.

Yea its a pretty good video to watch. The director was even lucky enough to interview the band members while they were recording Dark Side of the Moon.

Saw it decades ago, literally. Don't have a clear memory of it due to those years passed and my...ahem...
frame of mind then.

I look forward to seeing it again some day.
