Pink Floyd's Roger Waters: 'I wish Barack Obama would grow bigger cojones'

Musician asks US President to start governing the way his supporters 'want him to'

Pink Floyd's Roger Waters: 'I wish Barack Obama would grow bigger cojones'
Former Pink Floyd co-frontman Roger Waters has pleaded with US President Barack Obama to "develop bigger cojones".

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Waters admitted that he was "very disappointed" with the politician's foreign policy and said that although he would still vote for Obama, he wanted him to be more courageous.

"I'm very, very disappointed by his foreign policy," he said. "It obviously goes against everything that I believe. Having said that, it seems that the alternative to re-electing Obama would be such a heinous disaster for this country if you look at the candidates on the other side."

He then went on to add:

So, I support Obama's attempt to become re-elected. But I hope he will develop bigger cojones and start governing in the way that I, and many of the people who supported him in the last election, would want him to.


Last month it was revealed that Waters, who will be on the road throughout 2012 with his live show in which he performs the entirety of Pink Floyd's classic 1979 concept album 'The Wall', will marry his long-term girlfriend Laurie Durning before he begins the tour. It will be the fourth time he has wed.

Earlier this year, meanwhile, he hinted that he would never reunite with Pink Floyd again after stating that he has "no wish" to work with them in the future.
