Although they appeared to be getting along for a while, it looks like Roger Waters is trying to reignite his long-running feud with David Gilmour.
Waters, who streamed a live acoustic version of “Mother” earlier this week, is using the performance to point out he’s been banned from his former group’s website. “Why is this video not available on a website that calls itself the Pink Floyd website?” he asks in a video posted on Twitter. “Because nothing from me is on the website. I am banned by David Gilmour from the website.”

Waters, who left Pink Floyd in 1985, goes on to say Gilmour believes “he is Pink Floyd, and that really I’m irrelevant and I should just keep my mouth shut.” Gilmour has not yet responded to the clip.
Should Waters even care after being gone for 35 years? Whose voice do you most associate with Pink Floyd’s sound: Waters’ or Gilmour’s?
