Pink Floyd: Shine on You Crazy Diminished Hopes for a Reunion


Warring PINK FLOYD rockers ROGER WATERS and DAVE GILMOUR dismissed reunion suggestions at last night's (17NOV05) UK Music Hall Of Fame event - barely managing to conceal the tensions which tore the band apart. Waters, who is in Rome, Italy, promoting his opera CA IRA, joined the London ceremony via satellite link, while Gilmour and drummer NICK MASON went onstage to claim the award.

...[Gilmour] dismissed rumours Pink Floyd would reform, as they did for July (05) supergig Live 8, saying, "The Live 8 moment was a wonderful moment. But we've all moved on and there are lots of other things to be thrilled about these days. "(Thank you to) all the passengers on this fabulous ride we've been on." Waters, who walked out of Pink Floyd in 1983, retorted: "I confess I've never felt like a passenger."
It's nice to know that it's possible to be petty well into your golden years.
