David Gilmour Says He Doesn’t Want To Go And Play In Stadiums While Opening Up About The Future Of Pink Floyd
In an interview with Guitar Player Magazine, Pink Floyd icon David Gilmour responded to some questions regarding the reunion rumors about the band and he explained his current opinions on his former bandmate Roger Waters.
As you may know, one of the best-selling bands of all time, Pink Floyd was founded by Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright back in 1965. Almost two years later, the band’s lead vocalist Barrett left the band and he was replaced by the talented singer and guitarist David Gilmour.
Throughout their career, Pink Floyd released various hit albums, including ‘The Dark Side of the Moon,’ ‘The Wall,’ ‘Wish You Were Here.’ The band managed to sell more than 250 million records around the world. However, their worldwide fame and success didn’t prevent the personal tensions between the members which led to Roger Waters’ departure in 1985. Since then, he and Gilmour have been in a long-going dispute.
Since then the devoted fans of the band have been waiting for a reunion of the band members at least for a special performance. During a recent interview he joined, David Gilmour was asked once again to clarify whether there is a possibility of the reunion of Pink Floyd in the future. However, according to David’s response, it doesn’t seem to be happening.
During the conversation, Gilmour stated that Pink Floyd has run its course and now they are done. He continued by saying that he absolutely doesn’t want to go back to playing in stadiums. David also shared his opinions on his former bandmate and stated that he is all for Roger Waters ‘doing whatever he wants to do and enjoying himself.’
Here is what David Gilmour stated about regarding Pink Floyd reunion rumors:
“It has run its course, we are done. I’m all for Roger doing whatever he wants to do and enjoying himself. But I absolutely don’t want to go back. I don’t want to go and play in stadiums. I’m free to do exactly what I want to do and how I want to do it.”
