Waters tour confirmed by REG
Posted by madhack on Mar 24, 1999
According to the Roger Waters fan club (REG), it has been confirmed via discussions with Roger's manager that he will be touring this summer. As I have no experience with REG, I cannot comment on the reliability of this, but it's something that would be nice...

The rumours are still just rumours
Posted by madhack on Jan 19, 1999
Okay. This is absolutely the last time I'm going to do this. If you heard about a concert, then you have been misinformed. No concerts are planned. I repeat, NO CONCERTS. This includes anything you have heard about New Year's Eve. NOTHING. Despite several statements to the contrary and notes asking people not to email, I continue to get email. So please, don't email me asking, because this is the only answer I'll give you. You may now resume your regularly scheduled browsing.
Gilmour denies album/tour rumours
Posted by madhack on Dec 14, 1998
Despite what rumours you have heard there is no tour or album currently planned, according to Dave Gilmour. He recently told BBC not to expect anything from the band before 2001... which, I might add, DOESN'T guarantee something in/after 2001. Just to clear things up. In other words, DON'T email asking. Here's your answer :).
A little bit about reviews
Posted by madhack on Nov 25, 1998
Still no new developments on the Floydian front. I have recieved a few fan reviews, unfortunately I haven't had time to put them up. I'm working on it as we speak. Note that while I don't have a problem with the "song-by-song", one-paragraph-per-point format that the reviews have taken, submitters are free to choose their own format. What fun would it be without each individual's creativity coming into play? Keep the reviews coming. I'm still working on the lyrics archive as well, but I'm without a scanner for the time being so larger scans of the album covers for the lyrics pages aren't forthcoming yet. I'm already halfway done with The Final Cut, I just need to take a moment to finish typing it up. I chose this album because a) it has great lyrics (duh) and b) it provides a good contrast to The Division Bell, the first album up in the lyrics section. It's looking like I might have time to work on this a bit more often so there should be some improvements in content soon.
New concert rumour
Posted by madhack on Nov 1, 1998
Please take this with due consideration. My source for this information, who wishes to remain anonymous, is extremely trustworthy. However, while she trusts her source (the firsthand source), I can't personally vouch for the original source. At any rate, the story is basically this: an employee of Winnipeg Enterprises, the company that does booking and such for Winnipeg Stadium in Manitoba, Canada reports that a scout for Pink Floyd was out at the stadium, measuring and booking a date in June . However, Nick Mason recently appeared on Late Night with David Letterman to promote a new book and was told Letterman that the band was "together, but not working very hard." What's the truth and what did Nick mean? We'll find out shortly, I'm sure...
The rumours are just rumours
Posted by madhack on Oct 13, 1998
Many changes have occured recently. I've moved halfway across the country and I have a new job. On the Floydian front, no new news. There have been no concerts announced. Stop asking me about the concert rumours. The last I heard there were 3 separate rumours about New Year's concerts in Egypt at the Pyramids, in Las Vegas, and at Earl's Court. Even Floyd isn't so great that they can be in 3 places at once, so obviously something is wrong here. Nick Mason appeared on "Late Night with David Letterman" to talk about a new book, and was asked if Floyd is working on anything. His reply was that they were "together but not working very hard". In other words, the rumour you heard about a new album, or a new tour, or about Roger Waters rejoining the band is untrue. On another note, I haven't recieved any new reviews for the Reviews section. Keep them coming, please. I'm trying to find the time to write some of my own but I also want fresh perspectives on the band. It keeps things more interesting. Again, if anything surfaces about an album or a tour or a reunion or any other Floyd-related happenings, you all will be the first to know.
First fan review
Posted by madhack on May 8, 1998
Wow...this is suddenly monthly. Not intended. Hopefully I can start working on this more soon. At any rate, the first fan-submitted review is up in the Reviews section. Check it out.
Posted by madhack on Apr 8, 1998
I'm kinda tired of people asking, so here it is: There is no Floyd album in the works. There is no Floyd tour in the works. There is no Floyd reunion in the works. This is verifiable through several interviews and appearances by band members. Anything you have heard to the contrary is pure rumour with no foundation in fact. Please don't email me asking about the latest rumour, I'll make a big announcement here as soon as I find out anything new.
