You may not like Pink Floyd, but Rogers Waters pisses off all the right people. From Ed Masley at azcentral.com:
There are those among us who believe the stage is not the place for artists to share their political views. A Roger Waters concert is the last place you should venture if that’s how you feel.
Fans entering the Pink Floyd bassist’s This is Not a Drill Tour stop in Glendale on Monday, Oct. 3, were greeted by a woman distributing stickers that read “U.S. militarism fuels climate crisis.”
Just behind her, two men were encouraging people sign a petition to stop the U.S. extradition of Julian Assange. A banner at their table read “Free Assange” and depicted the WikiLeaks founder being muzzled by an American flag.
It was the type of greeting you’d expect if you’ve been following Waters with even one eye since the ’70s.
“If you’re one of those ‘I love Pink Floyd but I can’t stand Roger’s politics’ people, you might do well to (expletive) off to the bar right now,” he announced in a video message just before he took the stage. Hilarious yet sage advice.
