    Well? Sure, we've had our share of live albums and collections in the last 8 years since the release of 'The Division Bell', but is another studio recording currently in the works? It would really be nice to hear some new guitar licks from David Gilmour.

    Dave Gilmour said last year that he has no interest in reviving the group. Personally, I hated the Division Bell, so unless it's a Dave/Roger reunion, I've lost interest. There are plenty of bootlegs out there.

    Get Paul McCartney's album "Run Devil Run" and the live DVD "Live at the Cavern Club" for some good Gilmour guitar work.

    If Floyd's stuff is ever re-released on DVD-A or SACD, especially in multi-channel, they will be re-born again!

    Are they ever going to release Pompeii, Delicate Sound Of Thunder and Pulse on DVD? It seems like forever since I heard anything about these releases.

    bleh. just heard a "cover" of Wish You Were Here on the radio, I didn't catch the name of the group doing it.
    it was not pretty. [​IMG] some lyrics were changed as well. anyone know more about this abomination?
    come to think of it, have there been any decent covers of Pink Floyd material? I remember once in college I heard a band play a decent Another Brick In The Wall, but have never heard anything recorded.

    Primus did a great cover of "Have a Cigar" on their Miscellaneous Debris EP. There's a cool Gabriel cover there, too.

    Next year is the 30th anniversary of Dark Side of the Moon. I have the special 20th anniversary release, so I wonder if there's something up someone's sleeve for next year.

    Philip Hamm, how is that Fagan record? I love Steely Dan, but never heard any of their solo albums.

    Dream Theater does a mean cover of Hey You.
    The Magna Carta label has a tribute album which features artists on their label performing all of Dark Side of the Moon. I heard it once; it's not bad.

    To me, Floyd truly ended when Waters left.

    I'll bet the WYWH cover is the one Fred Durst did for the Tribute To Heroes special. Yes, it's pretty terrible.
    If I wanted to be really catty, I could observe that Gilmour and Waters have both been playing and releasing some pretty good PF cover tunes lately, but I won't go there. [​IMG]
    There are some good performances of Wall tracks by various artists on Water's "Wall Live In Berlin" album/video. Some bad ones, too.

    An old, obscure band called Wrathchild America covered 'Time' from DSOTM, this was back in 1990 I believe. Good cover, too.

    Voivod did a killer cover of Astronomy Domine on Nothing Face.

    They really need to release the quadraphonic recordings on DVD-A or SACD.

    Jerry Cantrell did a nice cover of Brain Damage when I saw him open for Metallica in 98.

    And I will crap myself when/if they ever do Pulse on DVD or release any DVD-A.

    BTW I saw PF in concert in 94 on the Division Bell tour. I will never forget that show.
