Former touring bassist for Pink Floyd Guy Pratt recently took to social media via Twitter to respond to a very bizarre and out of nowhere tweet. The tweet, coming from an irreverent podcast host going by the Twitter handle MrKenShabby stated: “Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere, leave you for dead?” Pink Floyd announce horrible The Beatles family death.
To which the former Pink Floyd member responded: “That sounds like it’s from a Xmas song that was left off The Wall.”
In other news revolving Pink Floyd, fans recently took to social media to discuss the legacy and impact of the aforementioned Pink Floyd classic – ‘The Wall’. One fan replied: ” The Wall is an absolute classic and one of the greatest albums ever made. It’s also my favorite right after Dark Side Of The Moon. There is great songwriting and an interesting story, it’s a concept album and possibly the greatest rock opera of all time. It was inspired by some true events like Roger Waters’ mental breakdown during 1978 In the Flesh? Tour and Syd Barret’s mental illness from LSD which he had to leave the band.” David Gilmour ‘Attacking’ Roger Waters Revealed By Pink Floyd.
The fan continued: “There’s a lot of fictional themes throughout also. If you want to understand the concept more than I’d also recommend Pink Floyd: The Wall (25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) movie. It’s a much darker and more mature offering of their discography. However the music is the best part in my opinion and the album has several popular tracks throughout, like their smash-hit Another Brick In the Wall (pt 2) along with Comfortably Numb, Young Lust, Hey You, Mother and Run Like Hell. The Wall is a change in direction and it put PF back in the mainstream after people criticized ’77 Animals. The songs are a bit rawer and harsher sounding but more polished than Animals and not quite as hard rock.” David Gilmour ‘refuses’ stunning money for Pink Floyd tour.
That sounds like it's from a Xmas song that was left off The Wall.
