I think it is certainly not just a successful song Yes I am old but I saw The Rolling Stones on stage shirt a state of creativity and a stage of growth and knowledge that leads you to the qualitative transformation of wisdom, wisdom, and practical philosophy ….. When I hear this masterpiece I turn from prehistoric times to assumed future ages. It’s really for all ages. Abir Saudi. I believe this could very well be the ultimate Pink Floyd song. When you know the background of this song, you get it. We all miss Sid. Great film! Saw it back in the 70s at a midnight show. WAY better than “The Wall”.
Having red hot pokers driven into your eyes is better than The Wall. Watched this on DVD while on Yes I am old but I saw The Rolling Stones on stage shirt, Tripping our balls off. Careful with that ax Eugene’s scream made the room go really dark, it was so gloomy. Both of us sat there watching with our jaws on the floor. My wife (gf at the time) completely sober laughing her ass off at us. I’ll never forget that trip. My friend died of Addiction a couple of years ago. He was a cool cat. He just started doing other drugs and the H got the best of him. Rip my friend. Easily my favorite concert film. And it’s the one Floyd “album” I go back to the most. Never gets old. I do wish it was available on vinyl. Or maybe it is? I’m not sure now.
