Re: Roger Waters and David Gilmour Perform Together Once Again

There's really no point in them trying to perform as Floyd again. That would be about like Paul and Ringo trying to perform as the Beatles.

Re: #9 Dream or Silly Love Songs

I'm not going to join in the McCartney bashfest that will certainly now ensue, "Silly Love Songs" is really a fine pop record.

But yeah, "#9 Dream" is better.

Re: Bruce Cockburn - how much do you like him?

I went with "I love him!" He's probably my favorite all-time songwriter. I have all of his albums, and I have listened to him a huge amount over the years. His lyrics are very, very meaningful to...

Re: Pink Floyd vs. The Who vs. Led Zeppelin vs. The Rolling Stones

For me, it's real close between Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and the Who. To me, the Rolling Stones are the "one of these doesn't belong" of the list.

I voted for Pink Floyd.
