Tomorrow night BBC World News’ HARDtalk will air an interview with Pink Floyd co-founder
Roger Waters in
he offers regrets over the protracted legal battle he engaged in with his former band
and reveals he intends to make another record.
Waters responded to BBC's Stephen Sackur's query about whether it was wrong for his band
mates to continue to use the Pink Floyd name without him by saying, "I did, I did think
was wrong, and I was wrong!... Of course I was. Who cares? It was a commercial decision
in fact it’s one of the few times that the legal profession has taught me something.
when I went to these chaps and said ‘listen we’re broke, this isn’t Pink
Floyd anymore’, they
went ‘what do you mean? That’s irrelevant, it is a label and it has commercial
can't say it’s going to cease to exist, you obviously haven’t looked back to
obviously don’t understand English jurisprudence...It’s not about what you
about...it’s what it is’....The law is everything what we have, that’s what
the Wall is about.”
According to a press release, Waters also discusses his intention to make a new album, the
claims of anti-Semitism thrown at him, his father, Syd Barrett and much more in the
interview. The full interview will be broadcast tomorrow (September 19) on BBC World News
