Are people stupid whenever they say that this song or even pink Floyd in general has to do with drugs it makes me mad he was basically mental listen to the song brain damage/eclip s e from the dark side of the moon album. And I'm only 13 and I know more about this type of stuff than people who were alive back then

This song is not about doing heroin. Do some research. Waters has told the story before. I hate when people just ASSume that everything is about drugs. See comments from Judge MEL and Zarris below.

I spent the night out on the sidewalk in front of Parisians Dept. Store to get these tickets. I started a line list that grew to around 390 names. It let everyone mingle without standing in a line, sleep where you want. We called roll about every 2 hours. The next morning we handed the line line to the police, they called the final roll call and got everyone in line according to the list. I sat about 35 rows back from the stage, in a POS stadium called Legend Field. Awesome show ♪♫♪♫♪ ♥♥♥

Best guitar solo ever! I was fortunate enough to see David Gilmour play this live In Philadelphia .

Great piece of music, shame it's about shooting up heroin. And that's a fact according to Pink Floyd. There will be a couple funerals today, enjoy the music.

The Solo that starts at 4:23 is one of the best guitar solos of all time

There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain, you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb

I have become comfortably numb

O.K.
Just a little pin prick
There'll be no more aaaaaaaah!
But you may feel a little sick

Doesn't matter how much drug use one has experienced : seen couple friends recover just fine and now, you'd never tell they were on the binge - sometimes , a friend is miraculous

One of my top 5 of all times, and yes, a killer solo. CLEMSON stadium, great concert. Their inflatable pig got away.

In my view, The Wall is an allegorical account of Roger Waters life to that point. Comfortably Numb was originally titled The Doctor. It is my position that this song is about the main character of the album having difficulty performing on stage in front of an audience. That is what is so cool about Pink Floyd. There are numerous interpretati o n s of their work.

Will always be one of the best solos ever!

This song isn't about drugs. Ironically, this is about two different moments where Roger Walters body actually became numb. The first one happened when he was a kid and had a fever. The second time was when he was doing a concert and was unaware that he had hepatitis. So yeah, the song isn't about drugs. Here's my source: http://www.s o n g f a c t s . c o m / d e t a i l . p h p ? i d = 1 6 9 7

If you want an advocate on using cocaine look to Sigmund, this shrink was shooting it so much he had to go to England to off the drug, he loved to bang his wife on coke.. Read his workings

Comfortably numb it's About David Gilmore receiving shots for a stomach problem he had in Philly in 77' not illegal drugs.. Do the research... Kept him good for the show

Cocaine was so powerful in the 40's and 50's , before people began to add junk to it in order for them to make more profit , it only took a pin sized amount to DO THE DEED - not good for recreational use ... Not recommended, it's highly addictive, it will have you selling everything and the kitchen sink for more - not Kooh

This song is about cocaine : it numbs your face - drugs ruin life

Love hanging out and listening to pink Floyd... HE ROCKS still to this day and.
