The bassist fuels speculation that Live8 was no one-off
Speculation grows that a great British band could be on the verge of a full reunion.
However while That Take’s impending tour is grabbing all the attention, Roger Walters has revealed that he is keen to continue working with Pink Floyd.
The group reunited this year at Live8 after Waters acrimoniously left the band during the 1980s, but now he’s happy to continue.
“I’d be very up for doing a lot more,” he explained. “It was such fun. We went in and did some rehearsals, and the moment we plugged in for the first rehearsal, it was like putting on an old shoe.”
For now though Waters is concentrating on his new opera ‘Ca Ira’ about the French revolution, XFM reports.
“Music is music. One’s only responsibility as a musician or any kind of artist is to speak one’s truth and hopefully invoke some kind of emotional response in your audience,” said Waters of the project.
“So whether you’re painting on a palette that’s bass crums and electric guitars or a symphony orchestra and chorus and soloists, fundamentally it’s the same exercise.”
