David Gilmour Celebrates Roger Waters’ Wedding Which Had A Hidden Purpose According To Fans
The official Twitter page of Pink Floyd, which is run by David Gilmour, shared a post celebrating Roger Waters‘ recent wedding announcement. While the post was far from being cheerful, some fans even think Gilmour may have shared it prior to the release of their album remix of ‘Animals.’
For those of you who may not know, Roger Waters got married five times, the first being with his childhood sweetheart Judith Trim in 1969. After 6 years of marriage, the couple divorced and in that same year, the musician married Lady Carolyne Christie, the niece of the 3rd Marquess of Zetland. The two had two children together but eventually divorced in 1992.
One year after, Waters married Priscilla Phillips with whom he has one son, Jack Fletcher. Their marriage faced the same fate and it ended in 2001. The musician didn’t give up on romance and he tied the know with actress and filmmaker Laurie Durning on January 14, 2012, their marriage lasted until September 2015.
The Pink Floyd icon recently announced the good news via a post on his official Twitter page and revealed that he married Kamilah Chavis. The rocker and his bride seemed incredibly happy in their beautiful wedding photos and their friends congratulated the newlywed couple.
Despite their notorious personal conflicts, David Gilmour unexpectedly shared a post on Pink Floyd’s official Twitter page following his former bandmate’s announcement. The rocker wished Roger Waters and his wife a happy and content marriage with a simple tweet that directly replied to Waters’ post.
In his post, Gilmour wrote:
“Wishing Roger Waters and Kamilah Chavis years of happiness and contentment in their marriage. Congratulations.”
While the majority of fans congratulated the musician, there were also some fans who made fun of the fact that Waters is on his fifth marriage at the age of 78. In addition to this, some fans implied that Gilmour’s post may be related to the fact that the duo came to terms with the re-release of Pink Floyd’s 1977 album ‘Animals,‘ meaning that Waters gave up on insisting on having liner notes.
A fan tweeted after Gilmour’s post:
“They are working on Animals, shouldn’t be too much longer. Once Roger dropped the demand to include a friendly author’s liner notes, David & Nick agreed to proceed.”
Another fan reacted:
“No way? That’s hilarious. Pretty childish the whole thing. Oh well, they gave us some brilliant music.”
