Roger Waters paints a dark dystopian landscape of life in 1970's Britain where a ruthless "dog eat dog" management culture exists in order to control and subdue the general populous ruled by a disingenuous & corrupt political elite.
Aaah....those were the days.
But we can make Britain great again.....let's take back control!!

The one where that nice Mr. McCartney invites us all to "do it in the road", young Georgie plays with his little piggies whilst that nasty Mr. Lennon sings about his filthy "warm gun".

Don't you just love the sixties???

Roger Waters writes about some fundamental topics that people thought and worried about in the 1970's including religion, class, ageing, wealth, sanity and death.

Lol gotta love these top 5s. Haven't watched the Classic Who, but absolutely love the 10 series. Smith - Tennant - Capaldi - Ecclestone (only 1 season that's why last, Hurt is great but only 1 episode, and the rest are brilliant and tend to change places). Also Maradona - Messi - Pele - others. "Franco" meaning Zola, Baresi or Guillermo Franco? The chart itself is great, Animals and Crimson's debut are both in my top 10, and the whole thing is a very interesting read.
