Rain interrupted the shoot, and they had to repeat the exercise two weeks later…”

  1. I was thinking the same thing about the Roger photo, but then there is a birthday wish to him discussed in the article, so it was sort of justified. LOL

    BUT… As for the line “According to the band’s fans, one of those greatest albums was the band’s 1987’s A Momentary Lapse Of Reason album” — Well, I’m not so sure about that one! haha

  2. Saw the same with the RW pic. While it isn’t their best album(Animals), it was a great piece of work for the newer and Gilmour driven era.

  3. Why does it matter? It always blows up into the go to argument of Roger v David. It’s like when Roger kept being asked about his contribution to The Endless River and quickly developed a nervous tic. Would anyone rather Mlor didn’t exist at all, or are we as Floyd fans permitted to enjoy what we can from it? Peace and Love to all.

  4. I don’t give a crap about what people think about Roger or David, I only care about the music. We all have our favorite album, and what we love is all that matters.
