Pink Floyd's bassist / songwriter

Roger Waters

got a little help from his friends on July 21st of 1990 

for a live performance of Pink Floyd's

'The Wall'

memorializing the fall of the Berlin Wall

The event was held

on the west side of the Berlin wall

in a vacant terrain

that had previously been part

of the Berlin Wall’s 'no-man’s land' 

The event helped raise money for disaster relief

Over 450,000 fans attended the concert

Roger Waters

featured a melting pot of guest musicians

to assist in the adaptation of the legendary album 

A performance that definitely stands

'the test of time'

was when Roger Waters brought out

Van Morrison

and members of

'The Band' 

Levon Helm & Rick Danko

Garth Hudson

to perform

'Comfortably Numb'

The emotion is evident

when Morrison, Helm, Danko, and Hudson

assist Waters in vocal duties

during the song's powerful chorus
