Found this on the Brain Damage site.
Things are looking up for us Roger fans.

As the final hours tick away before the first of his shows "Down Under", Roger Waters has undergone yet another interview for the local press, this time for New Zealand's Stuff.co.nz. In the interview, he reiterates his desire to release a lot more new material, and relates a story of his youth with Syd Barrett, which could have resulted in no Pink Floyd!

The interview, which can be read in full through this link, has Roger talking about his enjoyment performing the Dark Side Of The Moon tour, iPods ("I own...several in fact - because people keep giving them to me for Christmas presents, but I've never used one"), his son Harry being on the road with him, and about religion.

Tied in with this, he reaffirms his desire to bring his fans more new material:

"I've got a bunch of songs recorded or half recorded that sometimes seem as if they want to form themselves into records, but I've never got around to it in the past 10 years or so but I think I probably will because there's a lot of them there.

"As far as my future in music is concerned, I believe it can only be political and philosophical because of the invasion of Iraq. I wrote a little bit about it in Amused to Death, in 1992, and I believe strongly that the most malign influence on human life in the 21st century is all the holy scriptures that developed 2000 years ago in the Middle East Islam and Christianity. Now, that's not to say that all religion is necessarily bad but it seems to me that an adherence to the writings of the Buddha not that I'm Buddhist, I'm not at all might have been more beneficial to humanity."

The interviewer touches on the late Syd Barrett, and Roger relates a story concerning a motorbike ride in Cambridge that could have had tragic consequences - "we would have both been dead and there would have been no Pink Floyd ... so there we are."

Roger is right about the HS, though. I feel the same.

I just wish musicians would stay out of politics and do what they know
how to do well..PLAY MUSIC.!
Even the movie stars use their influence..I hate that!
It makes me not want to buy music or see movies.!
Yeah,we have the right of freedom of speach..but do these celebraties
have to sing it ? And just because they are famous..is their word more important?
Ah well..just MY opinion..nothing more. Embarassed

Come on, strobe, what the hell is going on with you?

Politics is human life, there's no better topic to write about.

Yeah,Politics and Roger go hand in hand.I wouldn't want Roger to make an album about some sloppy relationship he's in..

If Roger made an album about an EX,he could call it STUCK ON A ROCK Wink with Dave.

In The Wall, Roger does talk about how he treats women,beating them to a pulp on a saturday night..Grind that AXE Roger Shocked Shocked

I would still buy Roger Waters album. I am still liberal and as Democrat as always and still love Roger.
