ROGER WATERS TALKS ABOUT LIVE 8 REUNION
Roger Waters was interviewed yesterday by Sal Cirrincione, of Premiere Radio Networks in the US, about the reunion with Pink Floyd, at the London Live 8 concert on July 2nd.
The interview, aired today, was broadcast on hundreds of North American radio stations. In the interview, Roger said:
"I enjoyed the soundcheck [on Friday] and I enjoyed the gig. It was a long day waiting, you know, a lot of adrenaline flowing about. When I'm doing my own tours, you know, I'm sort of more in control of everything, and I tend not to get nervous, just a slight flutter maybe before going on.
"But that was quite nerve-racking waiting for hour after hour after hour to go on and do it, and wondering what it would be like. But I really enjoyed it, and I felt a lot of warmth off the audience and it was cool to be up there with the rest of the guys and doing that thing for a good cause. It was cool."
Roger then ruminated on the future of Pink Floyd:
"Never say never. I mean, under sort of similar circumstances, or in some way, we might do things again."
DAVID GILMOUR TALKS OF REUNION AND THE FUTURE
Talking of the concert, David said: "It was pretty surprising I must say to find ourselves in that position [back on stage] after all our years of grumpiness," adding that he and Waters are now on "pretty amicable terms. We've communicated a couple of times via email since the concert and he headed back to the States where he lives these days. It's a very nice thank you and goodbye."
"It wouldn't be absolutely impossible for a similar thing to happen again on a one-off basis, but that's it for me - I've moved on in the last 20 years."
Talk then turns to David's solo album, which we reported some time ago is currently being worked on. "I'm in the middle of making a record, which will be out under my own name in the new year, and I'm doing a few dates to support that."
Elsewhere, David writes a complete article arguing that the other artists on the Live 8 bill should donate any resulting profits to charity. As has been seen, all the artists (with the exception of Pete Doherty) saw sales increase, many of them dramatically. Indeed, this week's UK album chart has no less than four Floyd albums in it - Echoes (number 19), Dark Side Of The Moon (41), Wish You Were Here (65) and The Wall (74), and David has already pledged to donate his share of extra revenue back to charity. The album chart shows many re-entries from the artists on the bill, and if even some of them follow David's example, then the charity will benefit greatly
