Video: Roger Waters on The Daily Show
Pink Floyd veteran Roger Waters appeared on last night’s episode of The Daily Show, where he discussed his philanthropic work and the upcoming European leg of his Wall tour.
Host Jon Stewart specifically asked Waters how he continues to keep the tour “fresh” after two long years on the road. Waters explained that “the version of the Wall I’m doing now is different from the one I did with Pink Floyd in 1980. It’s far more universal in its message. It’s no longer about that miserable, self-serving, sniveling, nasty little Roger we hated all those years ago. It’s more about… the rebellion that is trying to understand the world and, if possible, help people occasionally.”
Stewart also poked fun at Waters, referring to his band as “the remaining members of Pink Floyd,” for which Waters smiled and responded, “This is how he makes his living. That is funny!” Replay the full segment below.
