During a recent interview with ‘Rolling Stone,’ Pink Floyd bassist and singer Roger Waters revealed the untold details of their meeting with guitarist David Gilmour and drummer Mick Mason.
As we all know, the surviving members of Pink Floyd had a peace meeting in June 2019. However, according to Roger Waters, this reuniting has never been as desired and said that it was a disappointment.
While discussing if the band could reunite and become friends again, Roger Water stated that he’s comfortable with his solo band right now and things would be terrible if they’ve managed to reunite.
Here’s what Roger Water stated:
“It’s funny you should say between me and him [Gilmour]… There wasn’t an elephant in the room, there was a drummer in the room!
Of course, he was there! Only three of us live; Syd [Barrett]’s dead and Rick [Wright]’s dead and as far as I know, there were only five – there were really only five of us involved in through most of it.
Yeah, Nick was there. Yeah, I wrote out a sort of a plan because we’d come to something of a – I don’t really want to talk much about this and – but my plan didn’t bear fruit.”
“No, it wouldn’t be nice! [Interviewer laughs] It would be fucking awful! Obviously, if you’re a fan of those days of Pink Floyd, well then you have a different point of view. But I had to live through it. That was my life.
And I know in the wake of it, I’ve been cast as something of a villain by whoever, whatever – so be it, I can live with that. But would I trade my liberty for those chains? No fucking way!”
