Excellent interpretation. Only recently started listening to the band's music after ignoring it in the 70's. VERY talented group of guys Flag HappyNewYear12 on May 17, Dojindog I like your interpretation, but you are forgetting probably the most important brick in the wall: His overly protective mother who shields him off from any external dangers. I actually think that his father's death may have caused his mother to be overly protective, and this has played a bigger role on the main character's life than his father dying.
More generally, I believe over-protectionism plays an important role in this song, not only by this mother, but by society in general. This comes back in many songs, for instance in "Another brick in the wall 2", where the teachers are overprotective and obsessively controlling. All these things are metaphors, I believe, for our society. Our lives are increasingly being dominated by fear. Modern technology has made us aware of all the possible dangers and everything that goes wrong in the world, which many people project on their social world.
Parents are scared to let their children play outside, society is being controlled by fear. In my eyes, this song is still extremely relevant! Flag marc on March 13, One method is to run individual wires in a conduit system such as intermediate conduit, rigid conduit or schedule 40 or 80 vinyl conduit. The second method is to run cable. If sheltered from direct exposure to the elements, nonmetallic sheathed cable designed to be installed in wet locations can be installed.
If exposed to the elements, type SE or Service Entrance cable must be installed. Of the two methods, installing cable designed for direct exposure to the elements is the quickest and easiest for the homeowner to install. The Wall is the last album to feature Pink Floyd as a quartet ; keyboardist Richard Wright was fired by Waters during production, but stayed on as a salaried musician. From to , Pink Floyd performed the full album on a tour that featured elaborate theatrical effects.
In , The Wall was adapted into a feature film , for which Waters wrote the screenplay. The Wall is one of the best-known concept albums. Some of the outtakes from the recording sessions were used on the group's next album, The Final Cut From to , Waters staged a new Wall live tour that became the highest-grossing tour by a solo musician.
Bassist and singer-songwriter Roger Waters despised the experience, feeling the audience was not listening and that many were too far away to see the band. He said: "It became a social event rather than a more controlled and ordinary relationship between musicians and an audience. In July , on the final date at the Montreal Olympic Stadium , a group of noisy and excited fans near the stage irritated Waters so much that he spat on one of them.
Guitarist and singer-songwriter David Gilmour refused to perform a final encore and sat at the soundboard,  leaving the band, with backup guitarist Snowy White , to improvise a slow, sad bar blues , which Waters announced to the audience as "some music to go home to".
The first was a minute demo with the working title Bricks in the Wall. By September, Pink Floyd were having financial problems and urgently needed to produce an album to make money. The strategy failed when many of the businesses NWG invested in lost money, leaving the band facing tax rates potentially as high as 83 percent. It looked as if we might be faced with huge tax bills for the money that had been lost. Eighty-three per cent was a lot of money in those days and we didn't have it.
They weren't the first crooks we stupidly allied ourselves with. Ever since then, there's not a penny that I haven't signed for. I sign every cheque and examine everything. To help manage the project's 26 tracks, Waters decided to bring in a producer and collaborator,  feeling he needed "a collaborator who was musically and intellectually in a similar place to where I was". Just don't expect any credit.
Ezrin and Gilmour reviewed Waters's concept, discarding what they thought was not good enough. Waters and Ezrin worked mostly on the story, improving the concept. He recalled: "The next day at the studio, we had a table read, like you would with a play, but with the whole of the band, and their eyes all twinkled, because then they could see the album.
He's a very forceful guy. There was a lot of argument about how it should sound between Roger and Dave, and he bridged the gap between them.
The Wall is a rock opera  that explores abandonment and isolation, symbolized by a wall. The songs create an approximate storyline of events in the life of the protagonist, Pink, a character based on Syd Barrett  as well as Roger Waters ,  whose father was killed during World War II , which is where Pink starts to build a metaphorical wall around himself.
The album includes several references to former band member Syd Barrett , including " Nobody Home ", which hints at his condition during Pink Floyd's abortive US tour of , with lyrics such as "wild, staring eyes", "the obligatory Hendrix perm" and "elastic bands keeping my shoes on".
Pink is a rock star, one of the many reasons which have left him depressed. Pink imagines a crowd of fans entering one of his concerts, and we begin a flashback on his life, and it is revealed that his father was killed defending the Anzio bridgehead during World War II , in Pink's infancy " In the Flesh?
Pink's mother raises him alone " The Thin Ice " , and with the death of his father, Pink starts to build a metaphorical wall around himself " Another Brick in the Wall, Part 1 ".
Growing older, Pink is tormented at school by tyrannical, abusive teachers " The Happiest Days of Our Lives " , and memories of these traumas become metaphorical "bricks in the wall" " Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2 ". As an adult now, Pink remembers his oppressive and overprotective mother " Mother " and his upbringing during the Blitz " Goodbye Blue Sky ".
Pink soon marries, and is about to complete his "wall" " Empty Spaces ". While touring in America, he turns to a willing groupie " Young Lust ". After learning of his wife's infidelity, he brings the groupie back to his hotel room, only to trash it in a violent fit of rage, terrifying the groupie out of the room " One of My Turns ".
Pink, depressed, thinks about his wife, and feels trapped in his room " Don't Leave Me Now " , and dismisses every traumatic experience he has ever had as a "brick" in the metaphorical wall " Another Brick in the Wall, Part 3 " , Pink's wall is now finished, completing his total isolation from human contact " Goodbye Cruel World ".
Beginning to feel depressed, Pink turns to his possessions for comfort " Nobody Home " , and yearns for the idea of reconnecting with his personal roots " Vera " , Pink's mind flashes back to World War II, with the people demanding that the soldiers return home " Bring the Boys Back Home ". Returning to the present, Pink's manager and roadies have busted into his hotel room, where they find him drugged and unresponsive. A paramedic injects him with drugs to enable him to perform " Comfortably Numb ".
This results in a hallucinatory on-stage performance " The Show Must Go On " where he believes that he is a fascist dictator , and that his concert is a Neo-Nazi rally, at which he sets brownshirt -like men on fans he considers unworthy " In the Flesh ".
He proceeds to attack ethnic minorities " Run Like Hell " , and then holds a rally in suburban London, symbolizing his descent into insanity " Waiting for the Worms ". Pink's hallucination then ceases, and he begs for everything to stop " Stop ". Showing human emotion, he is tormented with guilt and places himself on trial " The Trial " , his inner judge ordering him to "tear down the wall", opening Pink to the outside world " Outside the Wall ".
The album turns full circle with its closing words "Isn't this where The album was recorded in several locations. James Guthrie , recommended by previous Floyd collaborator Alan Parsons , arrived early in the production process. When we arrived, I think we both felt we'd been booked to do the same job.
Relations within the band were at a low ebb, and Ezrin became an intermediary between Waters and the rest of the band. June 13, June 5, May 30, May 23, May 16, May 9, May 2, April 25, April 18, April 11, Guests Abp.

The scene fades from the white dust of Pink’s collapsed wall onto the day after a riot (presumably the one pictured in snippets throughout the movie) as various people go about cleaning up the debris.
