For anybody who was speculating and hoping that former lead frontman Roger Waters of the legendary rock band Pink Floyd, would be making an appearance on the album can stop right now. Waters left the band in 1979 and while he is still on good terms with his former bandmates, he has no desire to join them on their latest effort. Pink Floyd’s new album The Endless River is set to be released on November 10th but it will not feature Waters in any shape or form.
On Facebook, Waters unraveled his frustration’s on the topic. This is his post:
“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.”
So a Pink Floyd reunion is apparently not in the works. Hopefully the new album will be just as exciting and epic as their previous work.
