Pink Floyd feud escalates

Pink Floyd news

The long-standing feud between band members Roger Waters and David Gilmour went next level yesterday.

The source of the trouble this time appears to have been recent comments made by Waters in the media where he excused Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions in Ukraine and criticised the band for recently releasing a pro-Ukrainian song. In response Gilmour’s wife novelist Polly Samson published a tweet in which she accused Waters of being an ‘antisemitic to your rotten core.’

The highly inflammatory tweet went on to say, ‘Also a Putin apologist and a lying, thieving, hypocritical, tax-avoiding, lip-synching, misogynistic, sick-with-envy, megalomaniac…’

Gilmour liked the tweet and commented ‘Every word demonstrably true.’

Waters replied some hours later saying he was aware of the tweet and ‘was taking advice on his position.’

Founding member Waters officially left Pink Floyd in 1985 after penning some of its biggest hits including ‘Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)’, although he continues to perform with the band on occasion. Gilmour joined the band in the early years initially to help ailing frontman Syd Barrett, but eventually replacing him as Barrett descended into drug addiction and mental health issues.
