Does Roger Waters Hold A Grudge Against His Successor In Pink Floyd, Lee Harris Explains

Roger Waters and Guy Pratt go way back to the time when the bassist filled Roger’s position after he had left the band. Guitarist Lee Harris gave his two cents about their relationship on Fingals Cave Podcast, he said:

“Things are said in the heat at the moment, but I mean, all I know is that the guy did actually play with Roger at that benefit concert that he played with David [Gilmour], so there’s no bad blood between them.”

Despite the history between the two musicians, Waters willingly performed with Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, where Pratt is the bassist. Harris recalled the day of their performance in New York:

“The production manager came over and said, ‘Nick [Mason] wants to see you upstairs,’ I went up, and all the bands were in the dressing room, and Nick said, ‘Roger’s going to join us tonight.’ I burst out laughing, and he said, ‘No, he is,’ and I just laughed, and then Gary looked at me and said, ‘He is’ because they realized I thought it was a joke.

It’s now 6:15 or so, and the show starts in two hours; what happened was that Rogers had lost his mobile phone and didn’t know Nick’s phone number, didn’t know his email address, and wasn’t able to reply to Nick who had asked him would you like to come and do something. He finally got hold of him at about six o’clock that night, and when he turned up, I think it was about 15 to 20 minutes before we went on stage. So we all met him before, and that was that gig.”
