I can understand that. However for me it's not so much people saying they don't like AMLoR or The Division Bell because Roger's not on it, and maybe I didn't make my point well enough, but it's the people who don't like them because he's not on the albums AND because they think it's not Pink Floyd without him. So it's two-fold. To say you don't like something not just because so-and-so isn't there but because so-and-so isn't there it's not Pink Floyd and thus you can't like it.....I never got that.
I don't believe Roger made Pink Floyd anymore than David did or Nick did or Rick did or even Syd did. They're all responsible for what they became, each in their own way.
That's completely true. I think that the presence or absence shouldn't mean that much to people, unless they can actually put their finger on something they hear and say "That's where I miss this person".
