Pink Floyd: The Great Gig In The Sky.

My Dearest Friend Angelo, brilliant DJ, reminded me of the times we shared this song together. He inspired my improvisational dance career in South Jersey. I was feeling blue and he told me I owned this song when performed. Deep emotional feelings surface down to my heart and inner soul.

Pink Floyd keyboard player Rick Wright, wrote this song, which is about life, gradually descending into death. Hence the angrier and more intense first half with a dying person refusing to “go gently into that good night.”The second half is gentler, as the dying person gives into the inevitable and fades away. In the March 1998 issue of Mojo, Wright explained: “For me, one of the pressures of being in the band was this constant fear of dying because of all the traveling we were doing in planes and on the motorways in America and in Europe.”

Bruce Springsteen and  Paul McCartney amps were cut by Hyde Park’s curfew Police last night to a crowd estimated at 65,0000. Local London council at 11 pm were sticking to their licence for the event.  The Boss didn’t have any control over the rendition of “Twist and Shout.” People who traveled miles and withstood the rain were quite upset. Rage Against the Machine, The E-Street Band and  guitarist Tom Morello were back ups. Springsteen is known for his marathon concerts over 3 hours in the US.  Evidently, bloody England is quite different. Bruce could have used an NFL time management head coach. Calling Andy Reid anyone?

The Conservative-run council have received many complaints from local residence which are popular with bankers, foreign investors and politicians.   Noise and crowd control in Hyde Park, from 85,000 people to 65,000 and cutting the volume to 11pm have helped reduce the parks management noise pollution concerns.
