Canoe.ca is reporting that while a full-on reunion is about as likely as Syd Barret coming back from the grave, a one-off charity gig reuniting Waters and Gilmour with drummer Nick Mason is probably closer than we think for now.
Further proving that getting old doesnt have to mean getting cranky, the 67-year-old Waters admitted that theres no fussing and fighting going on between him and Gilmour, recently telling Rolling Stone that David and Nick and I might do a one-off somewhere, but theres no way were going to do a tour.
If you have a bad memory, the last time Pink Floyd were together on stage was over half a decade ago at Live 8, and even though founding member and keyboardist Richard Wright has passed away since then, Waters is still glad he had to opportunity to make a mends with his bandmates. Im so thankful that was managed to that 18 minutes together, he said, that the four of us got to draw a line under it.
Gilmour as usual has been mum on talks of a reunion, but Mason seems ready to do one more benefit concert before closing the book on Pink Floyd. It would be better if we really kept it as something to be used for good, he said. I think that would be a nice way to finish [the bands] existence just doing a show for the right reasons. “Were hoping the right reasons prevail on this one, but well just keep our fingers crossed really tight for now.
Well let you know if anything new develops. In the meantime, Waters remains busy with his currently ongoing “Wall” world tour (one date of which will feature Gilmour), while Gilmour has a new collaborative album with The Orb due out October 5th.
