A Momentary Lapse of ReasonUS publication Spinner have just interviewed Bob Ezrin, musician and producer for the Floyd for a number of years from The Wall onwards. For the first time, Ezrin has revealed what might have been, with regard to 1987's A Momentary Lapse of Reason album.

At the time Ezrin was working with the band on the album A Momentary Lapse of Reason, he was heavily into rap - a new musical form which was emerging at the time. "I became fascinated with [rap] in the Afrika Bambaataa days," Ezrin tells Spinner. "I'm an early adopter. I actually brought some in when we were doing A Momentary Lapse of Reason. I brought some in to David Gilmour's thing going, 'Boy, I think this stuff with a rock beat would be awesome.'"

Spinner notes that the suggestion was not overly popular with the guitarist. "He said, 'Oh my God, that would be terrible,'" Ezrin recalls with a laugh. "He couldn't believe it. He hated the idea."
