Gilmour Says “There Are Packs Of Lies”
If you think the years have somehow softened both Roger Waters and David Gilmour, then you’re terribly wrong. They have one of the most well-known feuds in rock history and with their recent interviews, it seems like the bad blood between them continues to exist.
A few days ago, Waters posted a statement on his website disputing Gilmour’s actual involvement in their classic hits. And more recently, Gilmour spoke to Rolling Stone magazine and of course, he has a few accusations of his own specifically Waters delaying Pink Floyd’s long-awaited Animals remix. Rolling Stone clarified that the interview was conducted before Waters wrote the scathing remarks on his former bandmate.
“Well, a very lovely Animals remix has been done, but someone has tried to force some liner notes on it that I haven’t approved and, um,” Gilmour said, “someone is digging his heels and not allowing it to be released.”
He shared that they’ve never had liner notes and when asked why they suddenly have them, Gilmour explained: “Because someone wants them, and they got a journalist to write some, and I didn’t approve them.”
“And he’s just getting a bit shirty. You know how he is, poor boy.”
“There’s a lot of misinformation,” he said. “And I’m not keen on constantly responding to every bit of untruth that I hear about myself and what I’m doing.”
“There are packs of lies and information I’ve allowed to sit out there but my general view is to swallow and,” he continued, “it’ll all come right one day in one way or another.”
