    can you sense the underlying tension between these two?

    Great discussion this, they were always good mates, there's no tension between them. Floyd was always two factions with Mason, Waters on one side and Gilmour, Wright on the other.

    The truth is often spoken in jest. Waters said, 'you're not a musician, you're a drummer.' I believe he still thinks he was the only true musician in the band after Barrett.

    Nah, he's never said that, he got a bit miffed that Gilmour was always saying that he was shite and that a lot of the bass playing on the albums is actually him. But in interviews Waters always acknowledged that Gilmour could play better but just couldn't write! It's no wonder they fell out!.

    Waters always had the good ideas and better lyrics. But Gilmour always had the melodies.
    20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon

    Yeah it's why Gilmour got his wife to write the lyrics after Waters left

    I think it's why the end result was so good as Waters thought the most important thing was the words, the song had to mean something. Gilmour argued that unless it was a decent tune/arrangement then the words didn't matter. They've been locked in mortal combat for nearly 50 years as a result!

    Gilmour had virtually nothing to offer for The Wall. Neither did the rest of the band. That's why Waters wrote more or less all of it.

    Yeah the story is that Waters turned up with complete demos for the Wall and Pros & Cons and asked the band which one they wanted to do. They picked the Wall.

    You can listen to the demo of the Wall online. There wasn't much motivation for the rest of the band to do anything. Wright was going through a divorce and distracted by that, Gilmour was doing other projects such as finding new acts to work with (he found Kate Bush).

    Waters had a pickle up his backside as he thought the album was going to be the grand opus and was pissed his bandmates weren't as enthusiastic as he was about it.

    I have the immersion edition of The Wall and the demo stuff is pretty boring to listen to. What is personal and exciting to one person isn't necessarily the same to others. I mean, in public I like to .... oops.

    In all the interviews I've seen Gilmour comes across as a pompous prick, he's only a fucking guitarist. Waters from what I have seen has never said anything bad about the others, Gilmour though has often said or insinuated that Waters lacked talent. After the concert where they all played together the other 3 with their arms over each other's shoulders but excluding Waters was childish and petty. PF with Waters were amazing, without him they were just another rock band.

    Yes, very Floydish in concept and sound. Looking forward to the album, which I have on preorder.
