Roger Waters Reminds Us He's Not in Pink Floyd: "This Is Not Rocket Science"
Published Oct 01, 2014Roger Waters may have been touring The Wall in recent years, but he wants to make one thing clear: he's not in Pink Floyd. Evidently a lot of people believe he's still in the band, however, which led him to address the situation on Facebook.
The source of the confusion is Pink Floyd's new album, The Endless River. That album consists of material made in 1993 and 1994, almost a decade following Waters' departure from the band in 1985. Some folks, however, mistakenly think that he's involved in the project.
Yesterday (September 30), Waters addressed the confusion with this eye-rolling missive:
Some people have been asking Laurie, my wife, about a new album I have coming out in November. Errhh? I don't have an album coming out, they are probably confused. David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It's called Endless River. David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd. I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd. I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that's 29 years ago. I had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, nor the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994, and I have nothing to do with Endless River. Phew! This is not rocket science people, get a grip.
The Endless River drops on November 11 through Columbia Records. Fans have every reason to be excited, given that this is the first new Pink Floyd LP in 20 years; just remember that it doesn't feature Waters.
