DREAM THEATER‘s John Petrucci, James LaBrie and Jordan Rudess recently performed a stunning acoustic version of PINK FLOYD‘s “Wish You Were Here” for the TeamRock cameras (courtesy of Classic Rock Magazine). The footage was shot last week in Oslo, where the band were touring their new album, The Astonishing. Watch it below.
“Wish You Were Here is one of my favourite Pink Floyd songs of all time,” says Petrucci. “I have many memories of playing that back in high school at parties. It was the one song that everyone seemed to know and sing along.
“Pink Floyd is a huge influence, not only on me but on the rest of the guys. The Astonishing is a concept album, and Pink Floyd’s The Wall was definitely an inspiration.”
