The original version of “Dark Side of The Moon” is one of the best-selling albums of all time. It sold an estimated amount of more than 45 million copies worldwide.

“When we recorded the stripped down songs for the Lockdown Sessions, the 50th anniversary of the release of Dark Side of The Moon was looming on the horizon. It occured to me that The Dark Side of The Moon could well be suitable candidate for a similar re-working, partly as a tribute to the original work, but also to re-address the political and emotional message of the whole album. I discussed it with Gus and Sean and when we’d stopped giggling and shouting ‘You must be fucking mad’ at one another we decided to take it on.”

“It’s turned out really great and I’m excited for everyone to hear it. It’s not a replacement for the original which, obviously, is irreplaceable. But it is a way for the seventy nine yaer old man to look back across the intervening fifty years into the eyes of the twenty nine year old an say, to quote a poem of mine about my father ‘We did our best, we kept his trust, our Dad would have been proud of us’. And also it is a way for me to honor an recording that Nick and Rick and Dave & I have every right to be very proud of.” Roger Waters said in an statement.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
