Roger Waters Talks Pink Floyd, New Album in BBC Interview

In an upcoming interview on BBC HARDtalk, Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters discusses his departure from Floyd in 1985 and the naming rights issue that followed. Waters is currently at the end of a three-year long tour around The Wall and says he is considering making a new record.

On the handling of the legal dispute between he and his Pink Floyd bandmates, Waters says, “I did, I did think that was wrong, and I was wrong!… Of course I was. Who cares? It was a commercial decision and in fact it’s one of the few times that the legal profession has taught me something. Because when I went to these chaps and said ‘listen we’re broke, this isn’t Pink Floyd anymore’, they went ‘what do you mean?”

The full interview airs tomorrow in the US during BBC World News.
