Waters radio interview denies rumours
Posted by madhack on Apr 30, 1999
Perhaps the most important news is that I have tickets to a Roger Waters show ;). However, there is other information surfacing as a result of this tour. WIYY 98Rock, a Baltimore radio station, had an interview with Roger today. He did say that a reunion was possible. He also said that the rumours about the concerts for the new year were bogus. So stop emailing me about it. :)

Roger Waters tour CONFIRMED by the OFFICIAL site!!
DVD of "The Wall" announced
Posted by madhack on Mar 31, 1999
The word from the Sony Music-owned www.roger-waters.com is that a previously unreleased edit of the Wall will be released on DVD in anamorphic format. Check out the page for further info. There is also mention of the tour rumours, but nothing definitive from Sony, his label. Just confirmation that the Wall DVD is on its way. So you can now stop emailing me and asking ;). Thanks to [m1] for the heads-up on this one.
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

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...
