No Floyd reunion is not news

Add to Technorati Favorites

I hate the fact that whenever David Gilmour (or anyone related to Pink Floyd) has an interview in a major publication, it’s always “Pink Floyd will not reunite” even though Gilmour has a new solo project and a new Fender signature “Black Strat” finally being released.

No shit. Thanks for the non-news that there will be no Floyd reunion. Gilmour has been saying that since 2005 and the one-off Live 8 gig. If another Live 8 event were to come around, they might do another one-off gig. But they turned down a guaranteed $250 million to reunite Gilmour, Waters, Mason, and Wright and tour Dark Side of the Moon. They clearly don’t need the cash and all of them are free to do solo work, team up with other rock gods, sail around the world, race cars, fly planes, or just stay at home and be grandparents.

Sorry. That’s my “Leave Pink Floyd Aloooone!” rant. There isn’t a bigger Pink Floyd fan on the planet than me, so I only do it because I care.

    I was just about to do a blog post on this before I read yours. But after reading yours, I didn’t (sort of).

    I also subscribed to your feed.

    How about fuck? Can they stay home and fuck? Or are those days long behind all of them already? Cuz that’s what I would do if I had so much money that I would turn down my share of 250 Million. Just sayin’

    Thanks WTN. Generally, the only people who see my blog are people who are related to me or people who once worked for me and were forced to read it because if they didn’t, I would fire them. For some reason, El Gammy still reads it even though he doesn’t work for me directly anymore.

    Also, I will be reciprocating the subscription to your blog. Thanks!

    I am guessing that Rick Write won’t be joining any potential non-reunions now.

    or Rick Wright even…

    Pretty tough to tour when you are no longer amongst the living, indeed. Total pisser.
