Roger has always been the creative genius / driving force behind the Floyd........
He's right, Gilmour is a decent guitarist but that's all he is...... Have you listened to any of Gilmour's solo albums? Nuff said
You can see from, early on, 1967 that Roger was the driving force "creative genius"
Floyd ceased to be after the Final Cut..... as soon as Roger went his own way the "Gilmour band" just churned out shite (IMO)........ Division Bell (absolute turd) Momentary lapse of reason (turd on a stick).
Pink Floyd without Roger Waters is a restaurant without a chef. Plenty of shit on the menu but nobody to cook it.
Gilmour really is a sniveling, petty, narcissistic, self entitled little prick..... for him to claim credit for creating some of the best music EVER is just bad form. He's a session musician (at best) with the creativity of a f**king slug.
The Pros and cons of Hitch hiking still gets my goose pimples up (to this day) as does Radio KAOS, as does Amused to Death etc. etc. You can tell who was the creative force behind Floyd...... Roger Waters!
David Gilmour "About Face" album? Street busker trying to be a creative genius..... absolute non starter.
I'd actually like to punch Dave Gilmour in the face.
