VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Roger Waters – ‘5:01AM (The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking Part 10)’
May 5, 2017
It’s strange to think that Roger Waters’ first solo album, ‘The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking’, very nearly became the follow-up to Pink Floyd’s 1977 album ‘Animals’.
Instead the band went for ‘The Wall’ in 1979 and Waters saved this for 1984.
This is no bad thing as it features the colossal talents of guitarist Eric Clapton and pianist/composer Michael Kamen.
Not only that, but the album also featured the acting talents of thespians Jack Palance and Ed Bishop.
With Roger Waters readying himself for a new concept and album, this seems as good a time as any to re-acquaint ourselves with his superb solo work.
