They don't need no education: Tampa schoolkids to join Roger Waters onstage at St. Pete Times Forum




When the invitation came, the mother shrieked. The daughter turned to Google.

Roger Waters needed a children's chorus from Patel Conservatory to accompany him during Tuesday night's concert in Tampa.

"Oh, my God, Pink Floyd was so big," Toni Morrison's mother told her.

The Internet confirmed this, and 12-year-old Toni loaded The Wall onto her iPod.

Sixteen music students will share the stage Tuesday with Waters, the former leader of the British rock legends. The preteens and teens — many of whom were unfamiliar with the iconic musician until last week — will chime in for one song: Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2).

We don't need no education. We don't need no thought control.
