Former-Pink Floyd leader Roger Waters took time out to slam his ex-bandmates David Gilmour and the late-Rick Wright for attempting to undermine him during their tenure together.
During his recent appearance on the WTF with Marc Maron Podcast, Waters, who'll be hitting the road next spring for an extended road trek, admitted, “Getting away from Pink Floyd, I think. . . was really important that I got away when I did. . . I was in a very toxic environment where I was around some people. . . David (Gilmour) and Rick (Wright) mainly were always trying to drag me down. . . They were always trying to knock me off.”
When pressed for specifics, Waters said, “By claiming that I was tone-deaf and that I didn't understand music. 'Oh, he's just a boring teacher figure who tells us what to do but he can't tune his own guitar. . .' They were very snotty and snippy because they felt very insignificant, I think.”
