Pink Floyd guitarist and singer David Gilmour said in an interview with Guitar Player magazine that the band won’t reunite again, saying he doesn’t want to do stadium concerts anymore. Fans keep asking over the years for the surviving members Roger Waters (Bass and vocals), David Gilmour (Guitar and vocals) and Nick Mason (Drums) of one of the most successful bands of all time to reunite again. Currently the three have an active solo career.
David Gilmour said about Pink Floyd reunion:
“It has run its course, we are done. I’m all for Roger (Waters) doing whatever he wants to do and enjoying himself. But I absolutely don’t want to go back. I don’t want to go and play stadiums. I’m free to do exactly what I want to do and how I want to do it.”
One year ago, Roger Waters criticized that he didn’t had access to Pink Floyd social media so that he could promote his solo career. Just like his bandmates were doing:
“About a year ago, I convened a sort of Camp David for the surviving members of Pink Floyd at a hotel at an airport in London. Where I proposed all kinds of measures to get past this awful impasse that we have and the predicament we find ourselves in.”

“It bore no fruit, I’m sorry to say. But one of the things that I asked for. I suggested that because whoever the 30 million of you are who subscribe to the webpage [Pink Floyd’s official Facebook page has close to 28 million followers], you do so because of the body of work that the five of us created. That Syd [Barrett, the late Pink Floyd singer/guitarist], me, Rick [Wright, keyboards], Nick [Mason, drums], and David. Over a number of years created.”
“In consequence, it seems to me that it would be fair and correct if we should have equal access to you all and share our projects. David thinks he owns it. I think he thinks that because I left the band in 1985, that he owns Pink Floyd. That he is Pink Floyd and I’m irrelevant and I should just keep my mouth shut.”
After the discussion he gained access and promoted some of his material.
