I'm glad you like it. I don't like how it's noisy, either. It's one drawback of listening to live-recorded music.

Well... I am a big fan of Pink Floyd's music, so I prefer the original, Bowie is just too high and all over the place note-wise. I like Bowie's music as well and I realize he's being creative, and trying to make his part his own, but I just don't buy it.

Cheers - Dave

I understand what bobs_uruncle is saying, but I still like it. I think Bowie is just doing his own thing and I think it's okay. I always like the original cuts better, but I think this thing stands on it's own okay. I especially think Gilmour is on top of his game on this. I like it, I don't care who is playing.

I agree that David Bowie was very different but I think it was still cool. I'd like to see how it sounds with another artist. I found a group called Luther Wright and the Wrongs that did a cool bluegrass version of the song. Some might not like it because they upped the tempo a bit and sound like they're having too much fun but it's different.

That was amazing. Did one of the people in the crowd have a hammer? Weird question, I know, but I just happened to notice it. It's odd whoever it was got through security with it.

Keep Ziggy away from The Wall. Gilmour should've had Bowie sing "Have a Cigar" since another singer(Roy Harper) performed it that wasn't Waters or Gilmour. I saw a better rendition with the keyboardist Richard Wright singing Waters intro in a live studio session in New York on YT. They should've went with that instead of Bowie's version.

That was great! Sounds like the original. This is one of my favorite bands and they did a wonderful job.

I found another great cover. This time it's Queensryche and Dream Theater. I like both bands and saw Queensryche in concert back in the 90's. They put on a great show.

Wow, where's Freddie Kruger, that was A Nightmare on Music Street. Yikes I have to wind this up so I don't have to listen to it anymore LOL
