â€œThirty years ago when I wrote â€˜The Wall,â€™ I was a frightened young man,â€ Waters recalls. â€œIn the intervening years it occurred to me that maybe the story of my fear and loss with its concomitant inevitable residue of ridicule, shame and punishment, provides an allegory for broader concerns: Nationalism, racism, sexism, religion, whatever! All these issues and â€˜isms are driven by the same fears that drove my young life.â€
In addition to Roger Waters (lead vocals, bass), â€œThe Wallâ€ live touring ensemble includes: Snowy White (Guitar), Dave Kilminster (Guitar), GE Smith (Guitar & Bass), Jon Carin (Keyboards), Harry Waters (Hammond Organ), Graham Broad (Drums), Robbie Wyckoff (Vocals), Jon Joyce, Pat Lennon, Mark Lennon and Kipp Lennon (Backing Vocals).
