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.
