We've heard stuff like this before. Just because they had a good time at Live8 doesn't mean Roger is going to feel differently about the past.

Also, another problem with written interviews is that you can't tell whether things were tounge in cheek or padded down for the article.

Mostly agree with everything you said, except for the "successful" part.

I assume you mean from an artistic standpoint, which is certainly subjective. From a ticket and album sales standpoint, there's no arguing it was a monster success.

As a musician that has listened to thousands of hours of pre-
and post-floyd, it is my opinion that musically Gilmour's Floyd is far superior.

Of the three Floyd's, I think Gilmour's Floyd is the weakest link, but that's just my opinion.

If ticket sales = quality, Jimmy Buffet would be a musical genius.

News hound sniffs the air
When Jessica Hahn goes down
He latches on to that symbol
Of detachment
Attracted by the peeling away of feeling
The celebrity of the abused shell the belle


that article is a laugh. i was a fool to answer it. and as ac said, nobody on this site can cricticise any member of pink floyd like that. the media are worms. they contrive wars and hatred. and that is what this article brought to this site.

get 3 or 4 hours of taped interview, pick out the juicy bits, and this is what you get...total b.ullshit

Quite possibly. Or maybe we're all just having the same disagreements we were before Live 8.

I respect your interest in Roger and suppose it is all just a matter of taste.

Since I am a musician I hear things differently....It's my opinion that the best of Roger always had Gilmour writing music to his lyrics. No doubt, Roger can turn a phrase....but so can Andrew Loyd Webber. Come to think of it Roger hated him too.

Roger is my favorite lyricist....and Dave is my favorite when it come to writing and arranging music.

I do dislike it when people dismiss DG...since I am Dave's Alt
I suppose I get a bit touchy...
