Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

(Book). To some, he is the face behind classic Pink Floyd. To others, he is the temperament behind some of the greatest albums of the rock era. And to others still, he is one of the most original songwriters of a generation that overflows with notable talent. To all, he is an enigma: a rock star who not only eschewed stardom but also spent much of his career railing against it. But to call Roger Waters a mass of contradictions is simply taking the easy way out. He is so much more than that. Roger Waters: The Man Behind the Wall is the first full biography of the author of The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and, of course, The Wall . It traces his life from war-torn suburbia to the multitude of wars he has fought since then with his bandmates, with his audience, and most of all with himself. Packed with insight and exclusive interviews with friends and associates, Roger Waters: The Man Behind the Wall dismantles the wall brick by brick, revealing the man who built it in all his glory.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Roger Waters is not easy to digest 14 mars 2016
Par kc - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Roger Waters is not easy to digest. His love, emotions and creativity echo through these pages as do his fear, anger and frustration. I see him as part of Pink Floyd, an integral part but not the finishing stroke. His life long quest for independence and recognition has lead him to be at odds with other band members, especially David Gilmour. Does one person make a band?
The loss of his father in operation Shingles, part of the larger operation Overlord and D-Day has scarred Waters. I relate to that experience as my own father was caught in World War II and deftly defended his mother's house from a German tank. "Daddy's flown across the ocean, leaving just a memory..." The pain of war, loss, seeps through the music, not in the psychedilia albums, but later, and first and foremost in the "Wall. "
The protagonist is "Pink." I ask myself " which one's Pink." A succession of people, images. But yes, fundamentally Roger Waters is the man behind the wall, behind the mask. Pink Floyd derive their name form an African American blues band. Interesting story , lots of pain. It's the way life goes, Waters is who he is, an enigmatic figure. Passionate, loving and angry... at one point he is upset at the audience and spits on them. He wrote the lyrics to the Wall; psychoanalysts are using the images from the wall to heal patients and if anything many folks wrote abundant papers on the subject of a mental wall as a psyche that has had it! There's a Pink in all of us : a depersonalized shadow , an angry fascist, an overbearing mother a punitive father and a puppet in the making-- on the road to recovery and personhood. Now he owns mansions and Syd Barret eclipsed who really started the band anyway.....................lol

This book had great information about Pink Floyd's music. I wish there had been more about Roger Waters in it.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Little New Here 16 septembre 2013
Par Joseph McHugh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I was excited by the release of this book, hoping that it would shed some light on an enigmatic figure in the world of rock.

But there is very little here that hasn't been written of before. Chances are, if you have followed RW's career, then you will know a lot of this stuff.

Unfortunately, there are few behind the scenes looks at the making of his solo albums,or, at his tours. Just the basics, easily found in press clippings.

Not much light is shed on his contradictory character.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 a book more about Pink Floyd that Roger. thankfully. 24 novembre 2016
Par stompk - Publié sur Amazon.com

David Gilmour is the man behind Pink Floyd. Roger Waters is an ego-inflated jerk who hates Jews and his fans equally. The story of "The Wall" is his journey inside the mind of someone who becomes convinced that he is better than everyone and the fans and the rest of the band are just an inconvenient part of being a one man legend. his antisemitic rantings on Facebook just make him that much less likable.

I think the only rocker I've ever known who cared less for the fans more is Axl Rose. . . but then, he never built a wall.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Roger Waters Man Behind the Wall - new hardcopy review 13 septembre 2013
Par Joseph Morris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Very good book. Nice to see a book written on Roger

Good overview on the man and his life.

It WOULD be nice to see further releases by the man (Live Wall shows on dvd, yes! further Immersion sets for Meddle, for example, and the early years (with Syd) would be wonderful

Has an index, a discography. Pictures (I'd never seen the one of Roger from 1968 in Sweden)

Will shortly post a video review. I think any Floyd fan would like it, its nice to see the mans legacy covered, and truly nice to have a little talk about such Obscured (by Clouds) albums as Music From the Body

To say nothing of Wet Dream..

Now if only Rick and Roger had written more together (Stay, Us and Them, etc etc!)
