Roger Waters see the dark side of the music’ and has very little good to say about the current state of the industry.
Waters talked with England’s The Times, telling them that the digital age has pretty much destroyed music and made it next to impossible for younger artists to make money.
I feel enormously privileged to have been born in 1943 and not 1983. To have been around when there was a music business and the takeover by Silicon Valley hadn’t happened, and in consequence, you could still make a living writing and recording songs and playing them to people. When this gallery of rogues and thieves had not yet injected themselves between the people who aspire to be creative and their potential audience and steal every fucking cent anybody ever made.
Waters also said that there will absolutely be no future reunion of Pink Floyd.
A reunion is out of the question… Life after all gets shorter and shorter the closer you get to the end of it and time becomes more and more precious and in my view should be entirely devoted to doing the things you want to do. One can’t look backwards.
