More Bands Tell Roger Waters: ‘We Don’t Need No Thought Control’

Legendary Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters may be ramping up his anti-Semitic attempts to discourage other musicians to boycott Israel, but there is mounting evidence that the music world is saying “We don’t need no thought control.”

In addition to the Rolling Stones, Justin Timberlake, Neil Young and Backstreet Boys, iconic rock bands Soundgarden and The Pixies have announced that they will perform at Tel Aviv’s Bloomfield Stadium in July 2014.

The lineup of talent headed for Israel comes on the heels of repeated blows for the BDS movement. Earlier this year, SodaStream spokeswoman Scarlett Johansson refused to bow to pressure to abandon the company because of  a factory in Kfar Adumim, and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres gave the company an Earth Day prize for its use of reusable bottles.

  1. Waters and his group are has beens, and his hateful, stupid mouth hopefully will have no effect on the other artists. His anti-Semitic feelings are well known, and if Israel and the Palestinians actually had a peace treaty, this POS would still be ranting and raving.

  3. Support all the groups that play in Israel and ignore Waters and his ilk

  4. SheilaNovitz834 says:

    Good, and may it only improve until the BDS ignorance and hatred is lying in a flattened heap at a rubbish dump, which is where it deserves to be.

  5. Hey, hey hey hey, Rock & Roll will never Die! who needs pink Floyd when you can have Neil Young ? Pink Floyd you’re money for nothing and shove it!

    Rolling Stones will do anything for money. Never had any principles.

  11. JackieRozell says:

    Obviously you are incorrect about Rolling Stones, as they had the principles to reject Waters effort to have them boycott Israel.

  12. EllenLevitt says:

    Oh the Pixies! And they used to be somewhat anti-Israel. Glad they’re coming to Israel.

    A man that can’t get along with his own former band mates and has produced nothing for years can only find friends with terrorists. Being this way is his only way of trying to remain relevant, but he is all washed up.

  20. greatstonesgreatstones102 says:

    I used to be a huge fan of Pink Floyd but now there music is poison to me, I hope Roger Waters and Nick Mason get a cancer and they rot, that is what should happen to a piece of garbage like them

  22. BobbyLevit says:

    Roger Waters= 21st Century nazi

  23. RickyResnick says:

    Roger Waters is a socialist

  25. BrigittedeKroon says:

    hehehe … nice one! Yea – I’d like to pluck and fling-and-flip and ploy-him-over very much so!

  26. AndyKasten says:

    Roger Waters is nothing without Gilmour anyway. The true Floyd sound is Gilmours guitar and voice. F Waters!

  27. BrigittedeKroon says:

    Ah – good to hear! It’s about Time that Goggas like Walters and Co get some opposition from ‘normal’, middle-of-the-road minded folks.

  28. HillelWachs says:

    The band America is also playing in Raanana on August 7th!! Amazing…

  29. greatstonesgreatstones102684 says:

    and this is the truth, while I can’t say I am a big fan of Gilmour as he has supported Roger in some Palestinian charity a few years ago, he has not jumped on the anti Israel and boycott bandwagon as of yet, when Gilmour was in Floyd he gave them the sound that made them to the main stream, and even when Roger was out of Floyd they still put out some good music, Roger Waters has put out essentially crap in his solo years, and Pre David Gilmour Floyd they were a typical “psychedelic” band that were a dime a dozen in the late 60s, when Gilmour was in the band they put out enjoyable music

  30. JudithYvonneDowla says:

    Roger Waters is on a personal eve of destruction if he does not change his tune soon. He is way off the mark telling music folks what they should be doing. Roger has a lot to learn about the world. Perhaps he should take his band on a tour to help the less fortunate people in the world and donate some of his money to `building a bridge to peace.“ He may find his record sales going down soon. Must think carefully before he speaks as the rest of us have done all in good time.

  31. StevePeck says:

    It doesn’t mean he is anti sema

  32. ZhanetaSolomonov says:

    He will soon join Mel Gibson. Just saying.

  33. MichaelEhrenberg says:

    UH, yes it does!!!

  34. MarilynChernack says:

    I boycotted everything Pink Floyd. Anything I had got either thrown out or deleted. There song comes on the radio, I change the station.

  35. BrianEnoch says:

    I am just so angry this guy would have opinions and that he would share them with others! What a jerk! I hope he gets a sliver and the infection make it hard to play his slide guitar.

  36. StevenKoukios says:

    Pink Floyd, from “Wish You Were Here”, ca. 1975

    Hey old man. You wish to stay relevant.
