Isn't this David vs Roger thing getting a bit old?

Post by FloydNZ »

Who agrees with me?......it's getting to be like a discussion of "what colour is nicer, red or blue"

why can't we all just agree to disagree and enjoy the music?

I haven't seen any recent "Roger Vs. David" postings.

I see it everyday and it is going to stop one way or another. Let's just agree Pink Floyd are less good than they were when Roger was with them as that is my opinion. Let's just leave it there.

I will start deleting posts if it carries on.

The bass guitar thread is not a David Vs. Roger argument.

The current Floyd thread is not a David Vs. Roger argument. It's more about stating what you consider Pink Floyd to be. Nobody has said Pink Floyd was/is simply David Gilmour or Roger Waters.

I don't see why any recent posts should be deleted. Nobody is putting down any members violenty. People are just expressing and discussing their opinions on certain matters.

It's all just good-spirited fun :D

Yeah this whole Forum usually has discussions about Roger VS David or VS the rest and it is like very boring. I like all forms of Pink Floyd, although when Roger was with them it was better. Mainly because there is not Roger vocals and I love hearing him as well as Dave and Rick sing.

You know what would be cool since Dave seems to not want to do anything with PF right now. It would be cool if Roger Rick and Nick made an album. Why not I think it would be great.

Although there's a lot of Roger versus Dave stuff (should have taken my advice and began a seperate thread just for them) it's because the subjects you can mention about pink floyd are limited. Once you've asked about favourite song/ album it will eventually come to favourite era so the argument will eventually start.

They couldn't call it Pink floyd though without Dave's consent, could they??. My guess is that if Dave ever got wind of that happening he would cut them off at the pass and start up the Pink Floyd machine again.

They could use another name, of course.

I will not be surprised if Nick Mason plays the drums on at least one track on Roger's next solo album (Similar to how John Lennon got Ringo Starr to play the skins on the Plastic Ono Band album. Just FYI, George Harrison also played quite a bit with John on the Imagine album).
