This time around, Roger Waters has re-recorded The Dark Side of the Moon without any of his former Pink Floyd members. Among his many accomplishments, Waters is credited with penning all of the lyrics, composing three of the songs, and co-composing two others for the DSOTM album, which was released in 1973.
Waters expressed his opinions in a recent interview with The Telegraph. “I wrote The Dark Side of the Moon. Let’s get rid of all this ‘we’ crap! Of course, we were a band, there were four of us, we all contributed – but it’s my project and I wrote it. So… blah!”
The rocker was quite critical of his former bandmates’ songwriting abilities, saying they were unable to produce any music worth listening to. “Well, Nick [Mason] never pretended. But [David] Gilmour and Rick [Wright]? They can’t write songs, they’ve nothing to say. They are not artists!”
Although no official date has been set, The Telegraph predicted that the remastered edition of The Dark Side of the Moon would be released in May. Waters and Gilmour have renewed their public feud with the announcement of the re-record.
