These guys seem to have buried the hatchet, more or less, and I applaud them for that. I'm still kicking myself for not going to the UK for what turned out to be their only full reunion at Live 8. Oh well. At least I can enjoy the DVD of it.

They have to do a Pink Floyd reunion at some point don't they? I know Richard Wright passed away a few years ago but they still could reunite. I saw Waters do the The Wall and it was great. I have still not seen David Gilmour - he never comes here.

As for Live 8, they only played a few songs didn't they?
The music brought me to Moondance Jam. The people bring me back.

Unfortunately according to reports this was the final time. Apparantly Roger Waters did a favour for Dave Gilmour for a charity a while back, and this was him recipricating the favour. According to the BBC entertainment correspondent, who was there that night after a tip off, they are civil to each other these days, but that's as far as it goes :(

Chris, they played Breathe, Money, Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb - and they performed them all spotlessly.

It was reported shortly after Live 8 that Pink Floyd was offered $750 million to do a tour. They turned it down.

I don't think they'll ever tour again, although an 'anniversary tour' of The Final Cut would still be in play since Roger had kicked Richard Wright out of the band at that point anyway. haha
