Last night, in support of the charity organization Musicorps, Pink Floyd's Roger Waters recruited a few friends including Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan and former Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello to join him in a performance of his band's classic track, "Comfortably Numb." They were also joined by U.S. Marine Tim Donley. You can watch a video of the performance below.
The event, titled Music Heals Benefit, took place at the D.A.R. Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. and proceeds went towards helping to support injured soldiers and their families. According to Rolling Stone, Waters' set began with the first ever live performance of Pink Floyd's song, "When The Tigers Broke Free."
NME reports that Corgan had once performed the track with David Gilmour and Richard Wright acoustically for Pink Floyd's 1996 induction into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame.
Corgan gave plenty of credit to Pink Floyd's Gilmour as inspiration for his live approach when it came to Smashing Pumpkins' album Oceania back when it was released, saying: "We want to play the album and then play some classics to go with it. I have to give some credit to David Gilmour. I saw him on his solo tour in 2006, and he did that. He came out and played a couple of The Dark Side of the Moon songs. He played his whole new record. Then he did 'Echoes', 'Comfortably Numb', and all of that stuff. It was awesome."
You can also watch the trio, along with G.E. Smith and the Musicorps band, perform Bob Dylan's "Forever Young" during the same set, below.
