Alternative Nation transcribed Waters’ comments. Roger Waters brutally rips terrible David Gilmour songs.
Roger Waters: Yeah, well, you know it’s ‘sink or swim’. You cannot, a band cannot survive – well, it depends maybe it can, I don’t know. I mean, David might have a different opinion about this but my view is a band can only survive if somebody is writing. If the work is going to have any kind of meaning at all – clearly a lot of popular music is entirely vacuous and it becomes popular because it’s not about anything. It’s just la-de-da-de-da-da-da and that’s fine. I don’t know why I’ve always felt the need to express my innermost feelings through writing. I had no idea that I could write, none.” Roger Waters makes brutal David Gilmour ‘divorce’ claim.
In other news regarding Pink Floyd and Roger Waters, fans recently took to social media to discuss the legacy and impact of the psychedelic Pink Floyd movie – ‘The Wall’. One fan mused: “This movie was way more psychological than I imagined and I know you’re supposed to get high before listening to a Pink Floyd album, but this movie removes that need with as trippy as it already is. This film is a real cerebral experience that is not for the weak-minded. It has a lot of themes and imagery that would send the meek scurrying back to their safe spaces. Those who do have the mental fortitude to handle this movie will find it really tells a powerful story of the life progression of an artist who perseveres through both internal and external struggles. saying any more would ruin the movie and it’s truly a movie everyone should see at least once.” Roger Waters rips horrible David Gilmour ‘cash grab’.
