As Pink Floyd officially breaks up, guitarist David Gilmour is singing the truth about why the band decided that it was time to stop the music. Gilmour explained that Pink Floyd's break up after almost five decades is because they feel they've passed their prime, reported the Music.
Pink Floyd did take a break in 1994, but proving that breaking up is hard to do, they then reunited in 2005 and then again in 2012. However, according to David, this split is permanent.
"I've had 48 years in Pink Floyd — quite a few of those years at the beginning, with [co-founder] Roger [Waters]," said Gilmour. "And those years in what is now considered to be our heyday were 95% musically fulfilling and joyous and full of fun and laughter. I certainly don't want to let the other 5% colour my view of what was a long and fantastic time together, but it has run its course, we are done — and it would be fakery to go back and do it again."
