'I have no wish to do it ever again' Waters says of his time in the band
Roger Waters has hinted that he will never reunite with Pink Floyd again after stating he has “no wish” to work with the band again.
The singer raised hopes of a full reformation earlier this month (May 12) when he was joined onstage by former bandmates Dave Gilmour and Nick Mason at a London O2 Arena gig.
The concert, which was part of Waters‘ ‘The Wall Live’ tour, was the first time that Waters and Gilmour had appeared onstage together in London since the Live 8 gig six years ago. They also played a four-song set for the Hoping Foundation at a fundraising event in Kiddington Hall, Oxford last year.
“I’m really glad that I was in that band for the 20 years that I was in it and I really enjoyed it. I think we did some great work together but I have no wish to do it ever again,” he commented.
Pink Floyd had planned to reform last year for a charity concert, but pulled out when they learned that it was to be staged at socialite Jemima Khan’s house.
Drummer Nick Mason (pictured right) explained that the venue “wasn’t right” for a reformation.
Earlier this year, Mason said that he hoped the band would play live together again, but said it would be “very unlikely” that they would tour.
The band are set to re-release remastered versions of the albums in their back catalogue with EMI on September 26, after resolving a dispute with the label earlier this year.
