The Philadelphia Inquirer‘s music critic Dan DeLuca recently interviewed musician Roger Waters about his latest tour of The Wall, which hits Houston tomorrow night (Saturday, 11.20.10).
“I love Dark Side of the Moon. Wish You Were Here. I love Animals. We did some great, great work together, and I’m proud of it all.
“But to me, The Wall stands out, because it has more to tell us now that’s important than the others…
“It tells us that we must not allow our political and economic masters, what Eisenhower called the military industrial complex, that we must not allow our leaders to persuade us that we need to kill others in order for us to protect ourselves.
“That’s what I’m saying in The Wall. You must not listen to that voice. You must listen to another voice, and it’s the voice that wants to take down these walls, lean across these barriers, and look into each other’s eyes and clasp each other’s hands, and say, ‘No.’ “
