jk: Thanks, fdp, as always. As for the second part, I've been a surrogate older relative in my time but a father figure is stretching things a bit.

sockit: Happy Father's Day, to the dads still with us and those who aren't. My daughter came to visit me and hosted a podcast with me and my son about music. That was the greatest FD gift ever for me!

kds: Will, agreed on Roger. I thought his 2017 album was dreadful. If that's the kind of music he writes now, it's no wonder he went 25 years without releasing an album.

kds: I actually prefer the Floyd live versions from 1980/81 of The Wall. I just don't think Gilmour is replaceable. I actually liked the 2010-12 versions better as well since I thought Roger had a better band.

kds: The Berlin version is good, and for the most part, the guests do a good job, but I think it's more of a novelty.

kds: I think what happened to Roger is that he doesn't have much of a knack for melody. If you listen to the Wall demoes, it's clear that Gilmour and Bob Ezrin really helped inject that album with melody.
