Roger Waters: ‘David Gilmour thinks he is Pink Floyd’

Roger Waters took aim at his former Pink Floyd bandmate David Gilmour in a video Tuesday, claiming that the singer and guitarist would not allow him to use the band’s website or social media to promote his own work.

Waters posted the video on social media and initially used the message to thank fans for their reaction to a new version of Pink Floyd’s ‘Mother’, which he recently recorded during lockdown.

He then began his attack on Gilmour, and said the performance “does bring up the question of why is this video not available on a website that calls itself the Pink Floyd website?”

He said: “The answer to that is because nothing from me is on the website. I am banned by David Gilmour from the website. About a year ago, I convened a sort of Camp David for the surviving members of Pink Floyd at a hotel at the airport in London, where I proposed all kinds of measures to get past this awful impasse that we have and predicament that we find ourselves in. It bore no fruit, I’m sorry to say.”
