Legendary guitarist David Gilmour insists Pink Floyd is done in his last interview, destroying the little hope the fans have.
Both a guitar icon and a successful lead vocal, David Gilmour is a prominent figure who also had a huge contribution to Pink Floyd‘s success.
In his interview with Guitar Player Magazine, he pointed out that Pink Floyd is not going to reunite, that it has run its course and they are done. He says he’s okay with Roger Waters doing whatever he wants, but David Gilmour does not want to go back, he insists:
David Gilmour on Pink Floyd reuniting and Roger Waters
“It has run its course, we are done. I’m all for Roger doing whatever he wants to do and enjoying himself.”
After mentioning his respect for Waters’ choices, Gilmour goes on to talk about his own feelings. He takes a firm stance of not wanting to go back. David Gilmour says he does not want to go and play stadiums and insists that he’s free. But I absolutely don’t want to go back. I don’t want to go and play in stadiums. I’m free to do exactly what I want to do and how I want to do it.”
Gilmour was not that firm when it came to reuniting two years ago. In his podcast mid-2019, he took a milder stance by saying “Never say never.”. Gilmour mentioned the “extended hiatus” between him and Nick Mason, the legendary drummer of Pink Floyd.
“We don’t have any plans right now, it’s still Nick and me on – I suppose you could say some sort of extended hiatus, you know. One day in the future, who knows? Never say never.”
When we compare his thoughts from 2019 and his current thoughts, there’s clearly a contrast between them, marking Gilmour’s unwillingness to play with Pink Floyd again. Even though it’s highly unlikely to hear a new thing from Pink Floyd, here are High Hopes from Pink Floyd for you to have a little dose of nostalgia.
