Stop us if you’ve heard this one before – Roger Waters is taking shots at his former Pink Floyd bandmates.
Waters dismissed David Gilmour and late keyboardist Richard Wright as “toxic”, adding “They were always very snotty and snippy because they felt very insignificant, I think.”
The interview actually isn’t new – it’s from an episode of Marc Maron’s WTF podcast recorded in October 2016. But it’s been making the rounds lately after Maron posted it to YouTube without a paywall.
Why is Waters so bitter about his old band? Is there any chance he and Gilmour will reunite at some point?
