It is inevitable, passing. Life only lasts so long and so do bands. David Gilmour confirmed in an Rolling Stone interview that The Endless River will be Pink Floyd’s last and final album. As much as this saddens this author I am grateful for the years of music, experiences and vision that The Pink Floyd have brought to my life. Come October fans will have the opportunity to purchase The Floyd’s final work.
With only two original members left, David Gilmour and Nick Mason and Roger Waters being estranged from the band it is time to lay The Floyd to rest. Check out the video below for Gilmour and Mason’s interview.
“The only concept is the concept of me, Rick and Nick and I, playing together in a way that we had done way way in the past but had forgotten that we did, and was instantly familiar,” Gilmour said. Mason adds, “I think Rick would be thrilled actually. I think this record is rather a good way of recognizing a lot of what he does. I think the most significant element was really actually hearing what Rick did, because, having lost Rick, it was that thing of… it really brought home what a special player he was.”
