In 1986, Roger Waters, having already left Pink Floyd, sued David Gilmour and Nick Mason in an attempt to stop them from using the “Pink Floyd” name.

He had declared Pink Floyd a “spent force.”

Needless to say, their relationships, which were already strained, didn’t exactly improve.

Twenty-seven years can change a person though. Does Roger still feel the same way he did in 1986?

Apparently not.

In an interview with BBC, talking about his decision to sue his bandmates over the “Pink Floyd” name, Roger Waters said, “I was wrong! Of course I was, who cares. It was a commercial decision.”

He went on to say, “It’s one of the few times that the legal profession has taught me something.”

With that water under the bridge, it makes you wonder… Does this make a Pink Floyd reunion more likely?
