And then it was over

I never expected Pink Floyd to ever play together as a band ever again. But I've always been a dreamer. When they had the small reunion in London, 10 years ago, I really wanted to go. I did not get the oportunity, so I at least got to watch it on the telly. Live. Wich was awesome. But if I'd been there, I could have said that I saw them all together. In 2008, I knew I'd never had the chance, due to Richard Wright passing away. But I never gave up that tiny tiny hope that Roger, David and Nick would performe together - one last time.

Rick, Syd, Roger, Nick, David & Bob

The group as most people know them

And perform together they did, For one song at Roger's The Wall tour. David joined him on the top of the wall during "Comfortably numb". At the end of the show and during "Outside the wall", Nick Mason came on to the stage as well. So for a few precious moments, they were together again. I've seen "The Wall" live 16 times. At this show in London, I had ofc no chanse of going due to my exams. I still regret it, I could have taken the exams later. So that is something I will always regret. 

Cause as from today, Pink Floyd is broken up. David Gilmour and Nick Mason put together one last album last year under the name Pink Floyd. And that was the first album in 20 years. And clarely also the last one ever. I do really have mixed feelings about it. They have had an amazing career.
15 studia albums. 3 live albums. 27 singles. 4 video albums. Not to mention all live conserts and solo albums. They've done so much, it's hard to understand. So it's easy to be a fan. What's not to love about the band! You got so much to choose from. A lot of people in this world think of Pink Floyd as the band who wrote "Another brick in the wall pt.II", or "We don't need no education" which is what many people think it's called. But the truth is that Pink Floyd is so much more! It's an endless river of songs.

Gilmour said: "It has run it's course, we are done". Say if they were to continue together as a band. Would there be any more masterpieces to come? I didn't have high hopes for "The Endless River" album, but I was very very positively surprised! I love the album. But would the next one be good too? It is a big name that they've been carrying around on. So maybe it's time to let that go, and rather focus on their solo careers. 
Again, I would love nothing more than to see these guys together. But if that's never gonna happen, it's better to know. I've been hoping and waiting for so mnay years now, And now that I know it'll never happend, I can focus on being a fan of their solo work and keep traveling around the world to see them live. 

Sad news. The band of my dreams are officialy over. The good thing is that I'll always keep all the good memories I had in my life prior to the band. And the cd's and dvd's will always exsist. So there will always be a chance of listening and enjoying the greatest music ever made by the band who just broke up.

The dream is gone

R.I.P Pink Floyd. I will always love you, broken up or not. Shine on!

Buisy summer

Hello to all you fans out there!
Welcome back to the old fans and welcome to all the new fans.
Hope you all have had a wonderful summer so far!

Happy summer to you all

I've had a rather buisy summer, so the blog have been quiet the last few months. I had a one week vacation in the end of july. And before and after that I've been working non stop. At last it feels like it. Two jobs, both part-time. Not many days off. It's a good thing I like both jobs. And I still got the time to listen to music on the way to/from work.

My boyfriend and a guy who looked just like Roger Waters/Richard Gere (in the background)

This summer I've been to a few conserts. In june I saw Toto and Mark Knopfler live. In july I saw Elton John live. Great gigs with great musicians. To be honest, it was that kind of music I listened most to in june and july. But in the end of june I felt like listening to "The Endless River" again. And one morning I woke up with "Hello (I love you)" by Roger Waters on the brain. Haven't listened to that song for many many months. So how I woke up - thinking of this song - is unknown to me.

Me and my father (two concert freaks :D ) Here at Elton John.

Hello (I love you)

The fact that I've been working all summer, I've finally booked time for a new tattoo! It's not until october, but I am so exited! It's been over 15 months since my last tattoo, and I've been craving for more ever since. And now I've got a date. No shocker - it will be a new Pink Floyd tattoo!! So exited! I had to wait until october, since I don't let anyone put Pink Floyd inc on my body! I have a guy in Bergen who did all my "The Wall" tattoos and also my "Dark side of the moon" tattoo. So he will be the one who will put "Wish you were here" ink on me as well! :)

This will be my new tattoo! Not sure about the writing, and if I'll even have any writing. But the rest - YES!

I cant' stop thinking about the upcoming David Gilmour gig.Only 42 days to go. So exited about going to London again, and I'm ofc most exited about seeing David Gilmour live for the very first time. And with his new album being released in a few weeks too. So much to look forward to!

Can't wait!!!

Only a few days after I'm back from London, the premiere for Roger Waters "The Wall" will be in cinemas, and I have my tickets. Wouldn't miss it. So it will definatly be a few Pink Floyd filled days. Two live shows and one concert in cinemas. Love it.
Keeping my fingers crossed that Roger soon will come out with his new album. And I would really love it if he soon anounced a live tour next year. Time will show.

Hope you all had a great day, and that the rest of the week will be good! 
Shine on all you lovely people!!

Waiting for the release of this album

"Rattle that lock"

Hoping that the dvd will be released straight after it's shown in cinemas. Need the dvd in my collection :) And I've been waiting fr sooo long!
