Roger Waters Regrets Pink Floyd Lawsuit
The classic rock veterans among you may remember the nasty dissolution of Pink Floyd back in the mid-eighties, when Roger Waters sued fellow founding members David Gilmour and Nick Mason to keep them from using the Pink Floyd name. It was an ugly end to a beautiful career, and in a new interview, Waters expressed remorse for his litigious actions.
"I was wrong," Waters said. "Of course I was. Who cares?”
“It's one of the few times that the legal profession has taught me something," Waters went on to explain. "Because when I went to these chaps and said, 'Listen, we're broke, this isn't Pink Floyd anymore,' they went, 'What do you mean? That's irrelevant, it is a label and it has commercial value. You can't say it's going to cease to exist . . . you obviously don't understand English jurisprudence.’”
The Floyd survivors did end up patching things up a couple decades later, although a true blue Pink Floyd reunion has yet to come to pass.
Waters, for his part, is working on a solo album, which, if it ever sees the light of day, will be his first proper studio album since 1992’s Amused to Death.
"I've had a very, very strong idea and I shall pursue it," Waters promised. "I will make at least one more record and I am really looking forward to getting my teeth stuck into it."
