Passing Along The Wisdom

Just introduced Erik to Pink Floyd. I was watching The Wall: Live In Berlin and he came along asking what it was. By the end of it, he was entranced, and I pulled out my CD of The Wall so he could hear the guitar solo in "Comfortably Numb" better (the version in that concert just isn't close to the power of the original). I'm not ashamed to say that the solo in question gives me goosebumps, and neighbors be damned, I turned it way up and air guitared the thing.

Funny how any other time, that might make me feel kinda stupid, doing that in front of a 13-year-old, but for that song, I didn't care. It's one of the most powerful bits in music, in my opinion, and always gives me a great feeling. Luckily, I think he agreed, so he didn't think it was weird that I acted as I did. ;)

Anyway, I'll be putting together a mix CD of "Floyd's Greatest" in the near future to give him a primer before I toss him into, say, The Final Cut or Animals. I'll save the early days for later (it helps to already be a fan to get into Saucerful of Secrets or Ummagumma). I do believe I've created a fan, though.
