Roger Waters Tributes Pink Floyd's The Wall Stage Architect Mark Fisher
Fisher later designed the Rolling Stones' Steel Wheels and Voodoo Lounge sets, U2′s Claw set and worked with Peter Gabriel, Tina Turner and many others.
Waters tells TeamRock Radio's Classic Rock Magazine Show: "Mark was a great man and a great friend. "I remember Mick Jagger coming to see The Wall. He came straight backstage afterwards and said: 'Who did that? I want it.'"
The designer offered his input when Waters decided to re-stage The Wall a few years ago. "I called him in 2010 and he was an enormous help. I was thinking about a virtual wall and he said, 'No, you've got to build the wall just like you did. You can do it – go on mate.'"
Waters recalls how Fisher would "stand there with his head on one side, and the wheels would be turning." He shares the contents of an email he wrote to a colleague: "I'm deeply saddened." more on this story
