My Original Artwork For
"Pink Floyd: THE WALL (live)"
"Nate Butler & Friends Present Pink Floyd: THE WALL" performed three times in 1994 (read a press article about the debut). The productions included multiple costume changes, props, lighting cues, and two slide projection screens. I created 'original' artwork to be photographed for the slides, although admittedly some of my art was derived from the original album-cover art by Gerald Scarfe. Although the "WALL" shows were (crudely) videotaped, I've never seen any still photographs, nor have I known the whereabouts of the slides since the shows. But, to my own surprise, I did find the original artwork in my archives, and so below I've reproduced it for your interest. Created in a few hectic days before the debut show in 1994, these pictures have almost never been seen.

"We're different from a normal cover band, where people say 'Let's do this song and do it our way,'" said [Nate] Butler this week as his band prepared for its first Pink Floyd night. "We try to sound just like the record."

For "The Wall," Butler has assembled a supporting cast of [Tom] Magill on keyboards, Donnie Marvin on drums, Jeff Fetters and Tito (no last name) on guitars.
"It's a tough piece," said Butler. "The album is really one big work. We're still working on it. It has a lot of sound effects.

"We don't intend to talk with the audience [between songs]. We're trying for a re-creation of the record. We'll do each side of the album as a set, with breaks in between."

Butler understands that serious musicians dismiss "cover" bands, but he also recognizes the value of giving music fans a friendly sound ...
