A note from Roger:

Recently I received a copy of a letter sent from Guantanamo by Shaker Aamer, a UK resident, who has been detained in Gitmo without trial for 12 years. Shaker's letter was forwarded by Clive Stafford Smith, a man I have met, who tirelessly advocates the rule of law, and every human being's right to a fair trial. In his letter Shaker quotes some lyrics of mine and it was on those grounds that Clive forwarded the letter to me. I felt it important that Shaker's story is heard, and that Clive Stafford Smith’s and Reprieve's attachment to the law is Is recognized as being fundamentally important to us all. Love Roger Please visit: http://www.reprieve.org.uk/about/ Reprieve delivers justice and saves lives, from death row to Guantánamo Bay. We investigate, we litigate and we educate, working on the frontline, providing legal support to prisoners unable to pay for it themselves. We promote the rule of law around the world, and secure each person’s right to a fair trial. And in doing so, we save lives. Reprieve prioritises the cases of prisoners accused of the most extreme crimes, such as acts of murder or terrorism, as it is in such cases that human rights are most likely to be jettisoned or eroded. Reprieve focuses on cases involving the world’s most powerful governments, especially those that should be upholding the highest standards when it comes to fair trials.

Roger Waters CBS 60 Minutes Interview

Roger Waters Tickets are selling so fast the tour is breaking attendance records. Roger Waters spoke with CBS’ ’60 Minutes’ on Sunday May 20 to talk about the tour, reasons for leaving Pink Floyd, and how he wishes everyone would just leave their cell phones at home. Interviewer Steve Kroft calls Roger Waters “prickly” however he adds that even at 68, the legendary songwriter is also “gracious” and “totally committed to his work.” Steve Asked why ‘The Wall’ has had such staying power with fans, Waters replied, “I think it strikes some chords that may be just beneath surface in most of us. What it’s about is the walls that exist between human beings, whether on a family level or on a global level. And I think that resonates with people.” Roger Waters has taken great pains in the stage show to reproduce the sound of the original record, even using several artists to replicate — note for note — what Pink Floyd’s singer and guitarist David Gilmour did. That made Steve ask the obvious question: did Waters ever think about pulling his old band mates back in? He barely had the question out of his mouth before Waters stopped him. “There must have been a reason back in 1985 why I left Pink Floyd, left the name, left that big umbrella of comfort … and there was a reason for why I did, okay,” he said. “And [that reason] didn’t go away, certainly, in the intervening 25 years or however long it’s been.” But something Roger feels has changed are concert-goers — specially, the ones who wield cell phones at his shows. “It drives me insane,” he said, adding that he does not understand why people are so focused on taking photos of the show and staring at a tiny screen when there’s “this huge spectacle” going on in front of them. Bitching aside, though, Waters loves his job — and has no illusions about the life of a rock star. “People always used to say, it must be so hard you know, how do you do it? You know, it must be so hard being on the road, being in a rock and roll band. It’s amazing that you survived. And I would look at them like, what are you talking about?” he said. “It’s the easiest job in the world … I mean, compared with something really hard, like for instance, looking after a two-year-old child, it’s an absolute doddle.” Roger Waters Tour CBS 60 Minutes Video

Roger Waters And G.E. Smith Jam


On April 27, Roger Waters returns to the road with his The Wall Live tour. The guitarist on these dates is G.E. Smith (Saturday Night Live, Bob Dylan). Waters has just posted a video to his Facebook page of himself jamming with Smith. Here is what Waters has to say about it:

In January, just before we went to Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina and Brazil, I wanted to play a bit, to get the fingers moving, so I asked G.E. to come to Breathe Editing where we were working, to hang and play. We played some stuff from the Wall which was cool, but also, at the end, we just jammed around a little bluesy thing in E. Andy Jennison, my editor captured a little bit on his iPad. I sort of like it. I sometimes forget what a privilege it is to to play with the guys in my band. Love,Roger
