Rick's Last Performance

Post by Alec Taylor » Wed Nov 19, 2014 4:37 am

I'm not sure if this is correct, so I'm posting the video here. Was this Rick's last live performance before he passed away?

If so, it's very clear that his health was already starting to fail him as the cancer took hold. It was actually really depressing to watch Rick struggle to sing "Arnold Layne" when he did such a good job with David and Nick at the 'Pink Floyd reunion' for Syd's memorial.

Whoever was responsible for this mix should get up against the wall though. Rick's voice was weak, but they made it stand out even more by drowning out all instruments and harmony vocals.

This was just after the tour ended, when David's "Arnold Layne" single came out.

That's something I noticed to. It was like every time he was singing, everything else suddenly got quiet compared to him. Normally I wouldn't mind, but then his voice just seemed to give out time and again throughout the performance. :(
