Even though they had Brian May... they cannot top the original!

Comments about Have A Cigar:

I just found out that Roy Harper sang on this one(PF). I had always thought it was Roger Waters. Anyway, his madman vocals make the song. I also love Gilmour's guitar work and the opening is one of the coolest sounding things in classical rock. The Foo Fighters' version is awful.

Foo Fighters - a good band. Pink Floyd - a legened. Not much of a choice here. In fact I don't think anyone could better a Pink Floyd song.
