"Thirty years ago, when I first wrote this album, I was rather famously not very good at being in rooms with people liking me a lot," Roger Waters said last night at the close of his epic performance of The Wall, wherein he used pyrotechnics, a high-def screen, dozens of projectors and blank white bricks that created a screen upon which a universe of pain, torment and beauty unfolded. "But I could not be happier right now than to be here with all of you." It's been a long journey since 1979 for Waters, and 2012 seems a potent time to be reviving this monstrosity for a tour.
