Well, David Gilmour and Roger Waters still hate each other. Gilmour’s wife, the author Polly Samson, took to Twitter to denounce Waters as a “misogynistic, antisemitic Putin apologist” (amongst several other things), and Gilmour shared the claims as “demonstrably true.
“Sadly @rogerwaters you are antisemitic to your rotten core,” Samson tweeted. “Also a Putin apologist and a lying, thieving, hypocritical, tax-avoiding, lip-synching,misogynistic, sick-with-envy, megalomaniac. Enough of your nonsense.” Soon after, Gilmore quoted his wife’s tweet, adding, “Every word demonstrably true.”
Waters has long been outspoken in his beliefs surrounding the Russia-Ukraine conflict, even calling President Joe Biden a “war criminal” by supplying arms to Ukraine and, in his mind, “fueling” its war with Russia. He expanded on those beliefs in a recent interview, walking back a previous remark calling Putin a “gangster” and instead saying he’s more open to listening to what the Russian president has to say.
Elsewhere in the interview, Waters defended his longstanding boycott of Israel, stating simply, “The Israelis are committing genocide.”
“In my opinion, Israel has a right to exist as long as it is a true democracy, as long as no group, religious or ethnic, enjoys more human rights than any other,” Waters added later. “But unfortunately that is exactly what is happening in Israel and Palestine. The government says that only Jewish people should enjoy certain rights. So it can’t be described as democratic.”

They ought to have a tour where they both debate between sets.
If the shoe fits...
I’d post to see that haha
A fresh eruption. Just in time for the 50th Anniversary remaster of Dark Side Of The Moon.
At least they didn’t call him a racist climate-denier.
“The author Polly Samson, took to Twitter to denounce Waters as a misogynistic, antisemitic Putin apologist”.
And those are his good qualities.
Aw, come on, David, Polly, don’t hold back. Tell us how you REALLY feel about Roger. I bet you think he has a really dark side, let’s get it all out here in the open.
Lip-synching? Now you've gone too far!
Yes, but Biden is trying to help Putin.
Clearly it was Roger...
He had nothing good to say about Donald Trump either, saying Donald Trump made it okay to be a racist in America, F both of these a-holes, and download their music for free. 🙂
My understanding of Israel is that is the only country in the Middle East where all citizens Muslim and Jew alike have equal rights
. There are Muslim parties and members of Israeli govt.
The condition of Palestine are almost exclusively the fault of themselves and their fellow arab countries. In many Arab countries Palestinians have no right or less rights than citizens of those countries and certainly less than those in Israel
Since the topic of corruption seems to be all the rage these days I would imagine Palestinian govt is near or at the top
People like waters truest amaze me
That’s all this is; advertising; disquised as gossip and dirty laundry.
Hey David... Why don’t you say what you ‘really’ think... LOL
Roger Waters is a douche... But hey... He lost his communist loving daddy in Italy during WW 2, so it’s all okay and it was people from the faith of Judaism who gave him that big cigar and all that cash he has stuffed in his pockets... So much for appreciation... Meh!
I always preferred Gilmour and even Sid Barrett to Waters anyway... But that was my acid trip.
It’s not 100% equal, but Arabs in Israel have more political rights they would in any Muslim country, where there are no functioning Democracies at all.
Roger and David are like John and Paul. Their solo efforts are equally strong and weak - Lennon was meh on his own, same as Roger. Gilmour and Macca had great solo careers.
Cool! I am glad someone closer to Waters shares my opinion of Waters.
There are many excellent patriotic Arab Israelis (and Knesset members,) but
It has often occurred to me that Americans who do not understand Israel’s situation should imagine if Latinos in the USA
1) had zillions babies and were serially on public assistance and
2) wanted to kill us and destroy the United States.
Bitters, table for one. Mr. Waters, your table is ready.
