I think more blame should be on Pink rather than Floyd.

Why do people keep asking?  They're all near 70 now, and Rick Wright has since died.  Live 8 was our chance to see them all on stage together again, and it was wonderful.  Let it go.

Maybe people would stop clamoring for this sort if thing if they saw any current bands that had a chance at becoming classic. There are no Stones, Zeppelin, Floyd, Who etc on the horizon.

I will agree that the current state of "popular" music is pretty dire, but at some point seeing a bunch of elderly men on stage pretending they're in their 20s again just becomes too embarrassing to continue thinking about.  I love Pink Floyd, and if I hadn't gotten the flu, I'd have seen them with my dad when they came to Chicago on The Division Bell tour in 1994, but without Rick Wright and considering David Gilmour and Roger Waters have only marginally kissed and made up, it wouldn't be an enjoyable show, no matter the cost.

That's my $0.02, anyway.

Coco LaFemme: without Rick Wright


In all seriousness, that's the kicker for me. When Wright died, the Floyd died with him. But Gilmour keeps going and going on his own and that's fine. He's done well. Waters can't stop attention whoring, and for some reason people still pay attention to him.

To my knowledge, the 5-man incarnation of the band never performed live.  They brought Gilmour in to play guitar for live shows, because Barrett's mental state was rapidly declining, but I believe they wanted to keep Syd in the band strictly to work in the studio writing songs.

Phish has been working steadily for 30 years this year. Only one minor break over all that time and they have never experienced a downsizing of venue.

That's not meant to open a debate about the merits of a vastly misunderstand band but simply to point out there a a very few acts that have been able to mature for decades without the typical ups and downs of rock and roll life.

While I agree with this statement I think I do mainly due to it being "energetic" bands. Steven Tyler running around with scarves at the age of 90 is a travesty of thought. Hell, I'm a Queen whore and I couldn't imagine Freddy doing it. But Floyd? Sheeeeeeeeeeet. I'll sit at their feet in front of the fireplace and listen to their stories until the day we die.

That is okay. I have all their albums, which never get old or break a hip during a performance.

And the Scissor Sisters' cover of 'Us And Them/Comfortably Numb' was not bad, so maybe new music isn't completely hopeless.

Waters is a douche. He is a brilliant composer and song writer but his neuroses went way overboard. He needs to disappear, and everything he was involved in after 1975 needs to be forgotten. Yes, this includes The Wall.

I see both Waters and Gilmour every chance I get. Saw the recent Waters 'Wall' show twice and was lucky enough to see several Pink Floyd tours back in the day. I do not care what any detractors have to say. They were one of the greatest bands EVER and I can prove it!

One of the GREATEST band of all time?

Misconduc: Question what is the reason Waters left and will not rejoin the band?


Several documentaries have been produced that answer this question quite well. Over time Waters became a complete tool, insisting on more and more creative control which meant the other members were basically session players. By the time The Wall was recorded the other 3 members had very little to do with any writing or arranging...although Gilmour did pen a couple from that project. But Waters basically wanted to control everything and he pushed his vision agressively. Plus, Waters got pissed at Rick Wright and wanted to throw him out of the group, and that really angered the other guys.

But Gilmour has been quite vocal about any kind of reunion: "Ain't gonna happen."
