The Lunatics Are On the (Infield) Grass?

Word just came out today that Pink Floyd mastermind Roger Waters will co-headline this year's Coachella Festival in Cali along with Jack Johnson. Wow!

I saw Roger at the, now demolished Cap Center in 1987 for one of the most memorable shows of my life.

He was touring in support of his RADIO K.A.O.S album, and only around 5,000 people were at the arena (it held around 20,000).

So, I felt like I was holding the world's best kept secret when the man who wrote just about all the lyrics and certainly conceptualized DARK SIDE and THE WALL, and said he would NOT play any Floyd tunes, suddenly broke out the cash register effects and launched into MONEY- by far, one of the great concert moments in my life!

Now that Roger is hip to the festival circuit, here's a thought: Roger at V Fest 2008! The giant, inflatable pig, the light show and all the necessary Floyd ingredients would work quite well at Pimlico. Keep your hammers crossed!
