I know I post this waaay late, being offline here all week, but what a bummer it was to see this come over the news wires on Monday. I always hate it when a founding/major member of a major band dies, and this is an especially heartfelt downer because this is the first time* since the death of Cliff Burton in 1987 that a member of one of my Top 10 has passed.
I didn't really think that we'd see any kind of reunion of Pink Floyd, live or (especially unlikely) on record, beyond that Live 8 gig, but just because of that and other unlikely reunions like Led Zeppelin, it kind of left me with a little bit more High Hopes that it could happen. But I guess this about settles it, because they've lost the jazzy and classical influence, and I don't think David Gilmour would do it without him. …
