Pandemic be damned, Roger Waters promises he's still hard at work. Waters, who is but one of many veteran artists who have seen major tours put on ice while waiting out the coronavirus, maintains he's as busy as ever.
The Pink Floyd co-founder spoke to Rolling Stone, and posted a version of The Wall classic, “Mother,” performed virtually with his touring band. During the song's line, “Mother should I trust the government?” — Waters mouthed “No f***ing way.”
He went on to say, “We haven’t stopped work. We didn’t stop for a single second. The show is part rock & roll arena show, part cinema. It’s couched on this idea that we are divided between the ruling classes, who I characterize as living in the iCloud. They live in the sky — it’s all white up there, and they live in great luxury. And then there’s the netherworld where the rest of us shuffle around, uncomfortably numb.”
