Legendary rock group Pink Floyd has called it quits after 48 years.
David Gilmour confirms one thing, Pink Floyd is dead; he’s done with the legendary rock band and doesn’t intend to go back.
Sorry Pink Floyd fans, but David Gilmour has officially left the band after reunited with Nick Mason for the release of ‘The Endless River.’
The band originally broke up over two decades ago, but maintained some presence in the music world. The Endless River was meant to be the band’s final record after a 20-year hiatus.
After years of bitter recrimination and mudslinging in the press, Pink Floyd buried the hatchet 26 years ago this weekend, celebrating peace on Earth and goodwill to men by legally finalizing one of the most strongly contested breakups in rock ‘n’ roll history. Still, as unlikely as the prospect of another Pink Floyd record might seem today, the band’s surviving members will probably never stop having to answer questions about their time in the band.

In an interview with Classic Rock Magazine, Gilmour says the band is “done” with Pink Floyd. “I’ve had 48 years in Pink Floyd – quite a few of those years at the beginning, with Roger [Waters]. And those years in what is now considered to be our heyday were 95% musically fulfilling and joyous and full of fun and laughter. I certainly don’t want to let the other 5% colour my view of what was a long and fantastic time together. But it has run its course, we are done – and it would be fakery to go back and do it again.”

Gilmour also said that reuniting without Richard Wright would be “wrong.” The Endless River included unreleased lyrics and music written by Wright prior to his death in 2008.
Fans of Pink Floyd can instead look forward to the release of Gilmour’s new solo album,Rattle That Lock, which he’ll support with a North American tour next year. Gilmour’s Pink Floyd bandmate Roger Waters is also planning a new album and tour.
