Death Cab For Cutie are not impressed by fellow Coachella act
The bassist and his band have been performing ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ in its entirety, recently performing it at the Coachella festival, which the US indie band also played (April 25-27).
Talking about Waters‘ live recreation of the classic record, Death Cab For Cutie told Spin Magazine that the bassist, who wrote a lot of the songs on the album, playing the record was inappropriate because guitarist David Gilmour contributed all the best bits.
“Roger Waters doing ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ would be like Ringo performing ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’,” declared vocalist Ben Gibbard.
“I had the same thought,” added bassist Nick Harmer. “All the parts of that album I love the most are Gilmour‘s.”
Do Death Cab For Cutie have a point, or is Roger Waters justified in keeping his own album alive? Besides would Ringo Starr playing ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’ be such a bad thing? Have your say by commenting by logging on to MyNME below.
