David Gilmour confirms Pink Floyd is finished
Legendary guitarist David Gilmour of the iconic rock band Pink Floyd says it is all over for the progressive-rock titans.
Los Angeles: Legendary guitarist David Gilmour of the iconic rock band Pink Floyd says it is all over for the progressive-rock titans.
The 69-year-old musician said Pink Floyd will not reunite for another round as the band had its heyday which was joyous and fun, reported Billboard.
"I'm done with it. I've had 48 years in Pink Floyd, quite a few of those years at the beginning, with Roger (Waters)... And those years in what is now considered to be our heyday were 95 per cent musically fulfilling and joyous and full of fun and laughter.
"And I certainly don't want to let the other five per cent colour my view of what was a long and fantastic time together. But it has run its course, we are done - and it would be fakery to go back and do it again," he said.
When the veteran British outfit released "The Endless River" last year, the band's first record since 1994's "The Division Bell", Gilmour said it would the group's last song. Gilmour also said he does not want to go back, especially after keyboardist Rick Wright passed away in 2008.
"To do it without Rick would just be wrong. I absolutely don't want to go back. I don't want to go and play stadiums... under the (Pink Floyd) banner. I'm free to do exactly what I want to do and how I want to do it.
"Obviously I accept there are people, who want to go and see and hear this legend that was Pink Floyd, but I'm afraid that's not my responsibility."
