Pink Floyd great Roger Waters recently spoke to the Global Consortium for Sustainable Peace in a new YouTube interview to discuss a bunch of topics. Here Waters discusses how, in his words, what his response is to people with opposing political viewpoints who also listen to his music. Alternative Nation transcribed Waters’ comments. Roger Waters reveals why he ‘abandoned’ David Gilmour.
Interviewer: “Roger I really love your music but I hate your ****ing politics.” I love it when you respond to that which is not my response. What do you say to the people that say that?
Roger Waters: Well, I made a demo of a new piece and I haven’t made the new piece of this radio play. In it there is apart at the end of it where I say: “If you’re one of those people, you might be well advised to **** off to the bar right now. It’s so gone, it’s so dumb but a lot of people are very dumb.
In other Roger Waters news, fans recently took to social media to revisit Pink Floyd’s ‘Animals’ album. One fan proclaimed: “One of my favorite Pink Floyd records. A dark commentary on the effect of selling one’s soul to a corporation. Insightful & chilling at the same time, a record to be played all the way through at once (the tracks are lengthy). A fitting sequel of sorts to “Welcome to the Machine,” I highly recommend this.” Roger Waters leaks Pink Floyd Coachella reunion.
The fan continued: “I got to see this performed live when it was new back in the Day, and I’ll never forget the experience. CD is packaged in a cardboard sleeve that is exactly like the vinyl album cover, nice booklet with additional photos & lyrics. A “must-have” for collectors of Floyd, Classic Rock, Concept Albums, or just great music. 2011 Master done at das Boot sounds amazing.” Roger Waters ‘angers’ David Gilmour in backstage photo.
