In-depth Gilmour interview in new Word Magazine Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Thursday, 02 March 2006

The forthcoming issue of respected UK magazine The Word features an indepth, six-page interview with David Gilmour in which he takes stock of his friends, family, beliefs and philosophies – and of devious drummers and belligerent former band leaders.

There looks to be sensational pictures of him on his houseboat studio on the Thames, Astoria, too. The people he talks about in detail include Robert Wyatt, Roger Waters, Nick Mason, Bob “Rado” Klose, John “Willie” Wilson, Syd Barrett, Phil Manzanera, Crosby & Nash, Richard Wright, and his wife, Polly Samson.

The Word editor Mark Ellen tells us that it's also full of revelations, such as this one: “The Live 8 thing was great, but it was closure. It was like sleeping with your ex-wife. There’s no future for Pink Floyd.” And this at the precise moment that Waters - who claimed in The Word last October that he wanted the Floyd to carry on and tour Dark Side Of The Moon – has advertised dates this summer as "ROGER WATERS – THE GENIUS BEHIND PINK FLOYD" with Nick Mason on drums, effectively going head-to-head with Gilmour who is touring with Richard Wright on keyboards. Two halves of one Floyd in competition!

Gilmour’s revealing interview appears in the new issue of The Word, in UK stores on March 9th. Single issues are available by post, internationally, at

Our thanks to Mark for the info!
