Check out a few more videos from The Who & Roger Waters’ final night, as well as their full setlists below.The Who: Roger Waters: Classic rock fans were treated to two amazing performances last night, as Desert Trip came to a close with sets from The Who and Roger Waters. Each artist dove into their repertoires, bringing out hit songs from all eras of their tenure. Any rock music appreciator was certain to be singing along the whole time, basking in the powerful music that both The Who and Pink Floyd have shared over the years.The night started with The Who, fronted by founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. With a stellar backing band that includes bassist Pino Palladino, drummer Zak Starkey (son of Ringo Starr), keyboardist John Bundrick and rhythm guitarist Simon Townshend (the younger brother of Pete), The Who seemed to lock in early with their earliest hit, “I Can’t Explain.” The show took fans on a saga through the band’s career, including segments of songs from the band’s two rock operas, Quadrophenia and Tommy. They ended with two of their most energetic and well-known songs, “Baba O’Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”Watch those two final songs below, courtesy of Fake Fan. Next up was Roger Waters, who had been warming up for Desert Trip with setlists spanning the career of Pink Floyd. His performance at Desert Trip followed suit, opening with the famed “Speak To Me/Breathe” introduction of Dark Side Of The Moon. Waters would ultimately play the entirety of Dark Side during his performance, excluding the instrumentals “On The Run” and “Any Colour You Like”, mixed in with other classic numbers through the band’s career. He played the majority of Wish You Were Here and Animals, as well as tracks from Meddle, A Saucerful Of Secrets and, of course, The Wall.Watch some Dark Side highlights, courtesy of Fake Fan on YouTube.

Damian Lillard accepts Marvin Bagley’s rap challenge, drops new diss track

first_imgJust when we thought it was all about the NBA Draft, Damian Lillard, known as Dame D.O.L.L.A in rap circles, went to Twitter to present a Marvin Bagley diss track. Bagley challenged the Trail Blazers guard to a rap battle Thursday on ESPN’s “First Take,” saying he’s the best MC in the NBA. Just hours later, Dame delivered. In the track, Dame D.O.L.L.A throws a couple subtle digs at the Kings forward. “You ain’t established in the league for one. You got potential, but this rapping is a breeze at lunch, easy,” Lillard raps. “You a clown, so go and enjoy the circus.”It didn’t take long for social media to find the track, and listeners were shook. We knew Dame went hard — but not this hard. Dame closed his freestyle with a mic drop saying, “stop playing with me, you boys is babies.” Does Bagley have a response ready? We’ll have to wait and see.last_img read more
