Numb To The Noise
One of the best songs ever is Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb.” The tune’s verses were composed by the band’s bassist Roger Waters, who wrote about the feeling of being sick as a child. Notwithstanding extraordinary lyrics, the song is capped off by a spine chilling guitar solo from the considerable David Gilmour.
What many people don’t think about this treasure of a song, is that Waters and Gilmour had a slight feud over it! Waters elabrorated on the feud when he went to a British radio station.
The band created a rythm track for the song. Waters loved the initial rythm section, however, Gilmour wasn’t too fond of it. So, Gilmour rerecorded the drum track to something he was more comfortable with. When he revealed it to Waters, Waters admitted he preferred the original! Waters said that the two ended up compromising, and split the drum tracks 50/50 on the final version of the song! In fact they pretty much split everything up 50/50 on this track!
Waters then admitted that it wasn’t much of a feud, as it was a difference of opinion that ultimately ended in a compromise.
So there you have it! Look at the meeting for yourself down beneath!
