The Machine Revisits Pink Floyd at Revolution

There's a reason the typical cover band doesn't include Pink Floyd in its repertoire. You can't exactly dance to Pink Floyd music, and it's a hell of a lot easier to toss out a piece of crap like "Play That Funky Music White Boy" than replicate something as precise and challenging as Dark Side of the Moon. Okay, so seeing the Machine isn't exactly like catching the real deal, but given the death of Floyd's founding member and keyboard player Rick Wright last year, and the outright animosity between guitarist David Gilmour and dour bassist Roger Waters, the chance of the band reconvening is about as promising as, well, Tiger Woods being tapped as a poster boy for celibacy.

Waters is launching his own tour later this year to mark the 30th anniversary of the release of The Wall. While that show may offer the chance to revisit the past, the opportunity to catch Waters up close and personal in a venue like Revolution is practically nil. Plus, if you think about it, aside from Waters himself, it's just a bunch of recruits replicating the original parts anyway. That only enhances the Machine's allure, and if the group's DVD is any indication, the music is down pat, both vocally and arrangement-wise. The Machine performs it as a four-piece, sans added extravagance. If the guys don't necessarily look the part, the cool lighting effects offer extra enhancement. Attend, or run the risk of saying you wish you were here.
