No but I have nicotine stains on my fingers and the inevitable pin hole burns all down the front of my favorite satin shirt.

Actually, right now I'm comfortably numb. I have to spend a week down in Austin - away from my beer - so I've spent the last six hours working my way across my six taps, one pint at a time. And this sixth one is a huge RIS that will definitely put my @ss in bed within the hour...

Cheers!

ps: This thead just reminded me to put the live Wall concert video on my phone for the plane ride...along with "The Professional - Director's Cut"...

I'm listening to On the Turning Away right now. Great song.

Wish You Were Here is probably still my all time favorite by Pink Floyd.
I was reading an interview in a guitar mag where David Gilmore was saying that Wish You Were Here was his favorite album largely because it's focus was mostly on the music, unlike The Wall where the lyrics/story was the primary focus.

Personally, I like both!

Gilmore can tell a story with a guitar solo. Great musician IMO.

I would have to pretty much agree.
Shine on, have a cigar and wish you were here. Watching Gilmore play wish you were here was awesome.

I think momentarily lapse of reason is one of my favorite Floyd albums for a couple reasons. First, it's an awesome album, second that's the tour I saw them on.

Yeah man. My mom used to make me listen to it when she had too much wine. We'd turn the lights out, light some candles, and cue the record. To this day, I'm glad she did. And, one day when she dies, one of the only things I'll want are her copies of The Wall and Darkside of the Moon.

Lots of interesting music on all of their albums. Different sounds, different moods.

I personally thought The Wall was a very cool movie. Pretty much through the whole thing you can just sit back and imagine how high they were when they made it. Loved the dark animation scenes.

In general I don't listen to whole albums. I usually just play the live 2-disc set, "The Pulse". Amazing what a live album can sound like, even compared to their amazing studio albums.

I love The Wall.....seen Floyd twice. First time was the Animals tour. Great show. Floyd is in my top 10 favorites.

The Wall is great, but I agree, not my favorite. Although, Comfortably Numb is probably my favorite song of theirs. My favorite album is Wish You Were Here.
