|Do Pink Floyd Belong at the V&A?|
I also became they were groovy through my Cousin Tom (he of And The Native Hipsters) and saw them perform at the time of Animals and the Wall - so I was drawn to the Mega Exhibition 'Their Mortal Remains' at the V&A.
[I also recall a guy at University in Wales on the same course as me, 'Dave' from Cornwall who used to listen to 'Dark Side of The Moon everyday.]

Well it is as they say a 'Curate's Egg' and reminded me that although for the V&A these music and Artefact shows are money spinners (as was the Stones thing at the Saatchi) a similar phenomenon to the one observed by Frank Zappa (Writing about music is like dancing about architecture) - comes into play on Museums trying to recreate recent times it's like, to 'Displaying a smell'.
Some good things though (much which would work better as part of a TV documentary ) and I am someone who knows their stuff reasonably well.
Some children (as School holidays have now begun) looking seriously bored/puzzled and some oddly in pushchairs .

|Reminded what a great Drummer Nick Mason was & is|
Highlight was at the end with great sound and good videos - strangely Comfortably Numb at Live8 brought me to close to tears as last time the four guys played together - would like to have seen a film of them when Syd was in the group along with David Gilmour but perhaps there is none?
Odd as I sat amongst other people listening to the group I was surprised that I was tapping my toes far more than they - [I like this too]
