Interesting… and during a show shortly after CNN aired the edited interview (about 6-7 minutes I think??) RW blasted them for ‘making him look like a prick’.

He made himself look like a prick IMO, but it is also very true he does give an entertaining interview…

Well done Mr. and Mrs. Gilmore! Call this clown out for what he is.

The decades-long rift between Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour and Roger Waters doesn’t show signs of mending anytime soon. On Monday, Gilmour’s wife Polly Samson, who helped write several songs after Waters’ left the band in 1985, took to social media to publicly criticize Waters.

“Sadly @rogerwaters you are antisemitic to your rotten core,” wrote Samson on Twitter. “Also a Putin apologist and a lying, thieving, hypocritical, tax-avoiding, lip-synching, misogynistic, sick-with-envy, megalomaniac. Enough of your nonsense.”

Gilmour liked the post, retweeting it, and in a show of support, wrote “Every word demonstrably true.”


Samson’s tweet follows Waters’ interview with German newspaper Berliner Zeitung last week. According to an English translation of the interview on Waters’ website, the 79-year-old musician proceeded to voice a series of controversial views on Ukraine, Putin, and Israel. In the interview he griped about how it was “really, really sad” that his former bandmates recorded a protest song with Ukrainian musician Andrij Chlywnjuk.

Last fall, the Pink Floyd co-founder spoke to Rolling Stone and claimed he was on “a kill list that is supported by the Ukrainian government.”

Following Samson’s post on Monday, Waters’ official Twitter account responded later that afternoon. “Roger Waters is aware of the incendiary and wildly inaccurate comments made about him on Twitter by Polly Samson which he refutes entirely,” stated the post, vaguely noting that he is “currently taking advice on the position.”

So, she helped write some PF songs? I imagine that would be Division Bell stuff.

Ya, it was later day PF. Kind of odd how that made it into the headline.

I find these twitter 'disputes' extremely childish. Oasis do the same thing although at least theirs are occasionally 'funny'.

What, I wonder do Gilmour and his wife get out of it? It clearly doesn't wind Waters up. In fact, I dare say he loves it.

Oh I think it very much gets to Roger... for such a pompous loudmouth, he has very thin skin.

After the interview with Michael Smerconish last August, he blasted the interviewer for 'making him look like a prick.'  He was at that time in the middle of his N America tour and apparently attendance dropped steeply after that interview... lots and lots of empty seats.  Which is awesome.  And I say that as a PF fan and went to see RW on The Wall Tour a few years back.

I was just listening to Smerconish this AM (he has an absolutely stout show on SiriusXM Radio - Channel 124 (Potus Politics) from 6-9am Pacific every weekday day).

Yeah well the only reason gilmours wife threw her toys out of the pram was to direct traffic to her latest book.

This shit is so transparent.

Personally, I don’t give a fuck about waters politics. He’s probably an asshole, but then so is bono. Further, waters is right inasmuch as anyone who believes the bullshit we’re fed by the media, is an idiot. The layers of lies and manipulation are impossible to fathom.

You’re not making any sense. Please clarify, La.

All the commentators calling him anti semitic, misogynist, Ukraine hating yadayada.

Is he those things? Is he even allowed to have an opinion that detracts from the wests imperialistic narrative?

Seems not.
