    Last night I watched the 2013 documentary film"The Man Who Saved The World”
    The man’s name is Stanislav Petrov.
    The year before Stanislav saved the World
    In the year 1982 I wrote a song
    “The Gunner’s Dream”
    It’s weird to think that had Stanislav not been
    In the right place at the right time
    None of us would be alive
    No one under the age of 37
    Would have have been born at all.
    It is acknowledged by all but the cretins amongst us
    That nuclear arms have no value
    It is also acknowledged that
    They are a ticking bomb
    And we ignore them at our peril
    Accidents happen
    The Stanislavs of this world are a rare breed.
    We’ve been extraordinarily lucky.
    If I ruled the world, I would heed the words of the wise
    I would get rid of nuclear weapons
    First thing tomorrow morning.
    On Dr. King’s name day.
    Of course no-one can rule the world
    The world cannot be ruled
    It can only be loved and respected and shared.
    If we’re still here in the morning
    So here is a new recording and video of
    "The Gunner’s Dream"
    As a gift from me and my lovely band and our friends
    To you
    With our love
    R.

    Just finished a multicam edit of Roger Waters Us+Them show that I was at (in Kaunas, Lithuania).
    This is probably nothing special to anyone who watched the official movie from the tour, but it was just another passion project of mine. I'd like to keep videos of all the shows I've ever seen in person and I'm planning to do more of these later this year (including Tool, Pumpkins and Muse). (But no APC, thanks a fucking lot to "no cell phones" policy).

    This show in particular was one of the very few times they did "The Bravery of Being Out of Range" (from Amused to Death), and the first time with the new verse at the end.

    It's a shame Roger has never done a show based around Amused to Death. It's a brilliant record, and given the right budget he could have made a real spectacle of it live.

    He sort of did - In the Flesh tour. Although it started 7 years after the album's release, there were 4 or 5 songs from the album performed each night, stacked together at the end of the main set, before the encore.

    I mean the whole album, not just that many songs. That tour was promoted heavily on the Floyd material, not his latest record.

    Agreed, i like to listen to Floyd songs, every now and then, but the guy has a solid solo career and "Amused to Death" is his best album of the solo years.
    I don't get why he doesn't play those songs anymore, last time i heard them live was during the "In the Flesh" tour.

    He was doing "Perfect Sense, Part I + II" on the Dark Side tour. Really glad I got to hear that one live, with the great PP Arnold singing her part from the record.
