Pink Floyd is Officially Over

Posted at August 17th, 2015 | by Supreet.cheema | in

Last year the legendary English psych-rock pioneers Pink Floyd released their first album in 20 year ‘Endless Riveras a collection of instrumental records salvaged from the band’s history. However, it seems that the reunion was short-lived. In an interview with Classic Rock Magazine, Long-time Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour confirmed that the band is “done”.

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),” he says in the music title’s cover story. “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 color 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.

 

While for some fans, the news might just be sinking in; the others knew that it was long over with the death of co-founder Richard Wright in 2008. Gilmour also said that reuniting without Richard Wright would be “wrong.” He adds,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. To me, it’s just two words that tie together the work that four people did together. It’s just a pop group. I don’t need it. I don’t need to go there.

 

Even with calling time on Pink Floyd, Gilmour is not yet retiring from music and is ready to go solo. Gilmour’s new album Rattle That Lock is all set for a worldwide release on Sept. 18 this year. Here’s the best of Pink Floyd!
