Pink Floyd bandmates feud over member’s antisemitic, pro-Putin remarks: ‘Guess the reunion is off’

Legendary Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour lashed out at former bandmate and founding Pink Floyd member Roger Waters on Twitter on Monday.

In a blunt post on his Twitter account, Gilmour blasted Waters’ history of anti-Semitic views and his recent defense of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s behavior in Ukraine.

The “comfortably numb” guitar player endorsed a scathing post by his wife, writer Polly Samson, which took aim at Waters’ political views as well as numerous character flaws that the former Pink Floyd bassist and singer allegedly criticized. Belonged to

He claimed that Waters was “anti-Semitic,” “misogynistic,” a hypocrite, and, in addition, a lip-syncer. Gilmore claimed that Samson’s post was “obviously true.”

In full, Samson tweeted, “Sadly @rogerwaters you are anti-Semitic to your rotten core. Also a Putin excuser and liar, thief, hypocrite, tax avoider, lip-smacker.” Conniving, abusive, sick with jealousy, megalomaniac. Enough. Your bullshit.”

Adding insult to injury, Gilmore-Cott tweeted his wife’s post, saying, “Every word is unequivocally true.”

The tweets by Gilmour and his wife were clearly aimed at Waters’ history of comments and statements as anti-Semitic, as well as his 2022 claim that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was “instigated in Ukraine.” “Extreme Nationalists” had incited.

Other attacks in Samson’s Gilmour-endorsed tweet reflect ongoing tensions between former band members who have been embroiled in a series of legal battles since Waters’ decision to leave the classic rock band in 1985.

Waters famously sought legal action to force Gilmour and the remaining members of Pink Floyd to stop using the band’s original name. However, Waters’ legal strategy failed and Gilmour has since continued to record albums under the Pink Floyd moniker.

Waters has since toured under his own name, still performing a large portion of his legendary band’s discography. Both Waters and Gilmour have reunited as Pink Floyd for just a few shows in recent years, but there has never been a serious Pink Floyd reunion.

A recent Twitter slam alerted fans to the fact that the famous former bandmates’ feud is still alive and well, and perhaps more intense than ever.

Freelance journalist Alan Weston responded to Samson’s tweet, saying, “Wow. I guess that means the Pink Floyd reunion is off.”

Sportswriter Evan McKenna lamented, “After so much genius, it’s sad to see it all end like this.”

Newsweek columnist and radio host Mark Davis wrote, “Yes. #PinkFloyd feud turned up to eleven.”
