Roger Waters show sparks memories

My expectations are at a near all-time high.

Perhaps too high.

Don’t set yourself up for disappointment.

Those were my thoughts as I joined about 15,000 other Pink Floyd fans at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa last week.

The band’s former leader Roger Waters had arrived to present his 1979 opus “The Wall.”

The landmark album seduced me -- like nothing I had heard before and rarely since -- nearly two decades ago.
