#JewsForWaters

Roger Waters
Us + Them Tour
Barclays Center
September 11th

Not sure of Roger Waters’ stance on Jews, but I know he doesn’t like walls.  In fact, he wants them torn down.  Like the ones in Israel.  I can see his point.  Other Jews cannot.  So some Jews don’t like Roger Waters whatsoever

does this make me a Roger Waters lover Jew? #TearDownAllWalls (except @walmart) #JewsForWaters

I am not one of those Jews.  I hope that’s OK with the rest of you Jews.  If not, it’s your loss, cause dude, Roger Waters is the fcuking BEST!!

This was my 5th time seeing the rotten ole bastard.  First two times he did Dark Side in full, then the next two me saw him Wall build and destroy!  Where did he go from there, as in two nights ago?  The best of both + a new album (which is totally NOT awful!)  

Who knows if this will be his last tour or not.  You have to assume it’s the last time, and so you juss go and see him, again and again, and I will continue to do so.  So should JEW!

And dude, LOVE the bobbed hair babes!

but seriously Roger… look, I love your faux David Gilmour – David Gilmwitz, but can’t you and David bury the BS and juss reunite???  You don’t need the money, but there would be plenty.  Do it for us, or do it cause you hate Trump more than all of us (Jews and non-Jews and Jews who hate you) combined 

First Set – Speak to Me / Breathe / One of These Days / Time / Breathe (Reprise) / The Great Gig in the Sky / Welcome to the Machine / When We Were Young / Déjà Vu / The Last Refugee / Picture That / Wish You Were Here /The Happiest Days of Our Lives / Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 / Another Brick in the Wall Part 3

CREAMing On My Knees

Eric Clapton
Madison Square Garden
September 7th

Was supposed to see Sir Eric back in 2009, as a part of the RnR HoF Anniversary Concerts, but he couldn’t make it for one reason or another, and I was left waiting.  And either I waited forever, or forgot about him, or something, or another thing, but then he announced that he was playing his ‘final’ concerts ever – a pair of shows in NY and another pair in LA, earlier this year.  Those tix went fast and left me waiting, again.  But then he was like, OK, me gonna do some more ‘final’ shows, same deal – pairs in NY & LA, and so this time I was able to make it happen, and that’s how I came to pray in front of the rock gawd that is Eric Clapton.  It was a pretty penny to pay, but I’d say worth all the pennies!

OK, so a lot of his best songs aren’t even his own, but he’s OUR hoochie coochie man!  He can shoot all the sheriffs he wants!  Even the deputies!!  Snort that Cocaine!!!  (him, not me).  And OK, he didn’t play the ONE song I REALLY wanted to hear (‘Let It Rain’), or even bothered to bother with ‘After Midnight’ (a song he’s shockingly has only played 200ish+ times), but dude, when he broke out ‘White Room’, OH MY FCUKING LORD, was I CREAMing all over myself!!!
