I think it's extremely unrealistic to expect those guys to be able to work collaboratively together in any way at this point in time. I'd love to be proven wrong, but I just don't see it happening.Quote:Waters remarked shortly after Live 8 to the Associated Press that, while the experience of playing as Pink Floyd again was positive, the chances of a bona-fide reunion would be 'slight', considering his and Gilmour's continuing musical and ideological differences. During an interview with Rolling Stone, Waters further denied the possibility of a future Pink Floyd tour, saying "I didn't mind rolling over for one day, but I couldn't roll over for a whole ******* tour." He has since stated on a radio interview that he would be interested in the possibility of recording a new album with the rest of Pink Floyd as long as he had creative control.
Good point. It seems a bit odd to me that people are saying that Waters is "pining" for a PF reunion--he's certainly more openminded about it than he used to be, but that's not saying much.
As for Waters having creative control--hey, I like his solo work for the most part, and am VERY eager for his next album. But, Waters doesn't need PF to put out another Final Cut--he can do that by himself. I think that collaboration would be the only real justification for a new PF album. Dave, Roger and Rick can keep putting out good solo albums (if they don't get too lazy!) regardless of the status of Floyd. It would be a real waste for FLoyd to reunite and make another TFC or AMLOR, when they could be making those albums by themselves. I'd much rather hear another Meddle, Obscured by CLouds, DSOTM or WYWH--an album based on collaboration. Otherwise, what's the point?
