Roger Waters (former band member of Pink Floyd)
NOTE: The track titled Comfortably Numb played in class came from the live performance in Berlin, on July 21, 1990, of the Pink Floyd concept album The Wall in celebration of the demolition of the Berlin Wall (a process that began on November 9, 1989) that had divided Berlin for three decades--into the Stalinist communist East and the democratic capitalist West following its construction that started on August 13, 1961--symbolizing the beginning of the end of the cold war that had not only wasted unconscionably enormous amount of precious resources, fueled in part by the nuclear arms race, but had precipitated the deaths of hundreds of thousands across the world as domestic struggles against oppression were stoked into full-blown armed conflagrations when each of the two cold war protagonists, the United States and the U.S.S.R., globalized the struggles by aligning themselves with one side or the other. The first of the three links below takes you to the song with the lyrics, performed by the original Pink Floyd band. (Yes, you must access and digest all three items.)
