Roger Walters is reminding fans that he’s no longer a member of Pink Floyd

Thirty years have passed since Roger Walters left Pink Floyd, but some fans still don’t get that he’s not in the band. In a post on Facebook, Waters says he wants everyone to know he has no hand in Pink Floyd’s upcoming album, “The Endless River.”

“Some people have been asking Laurie, my wife, about a new album I have coming out in November,” he wrote. “Errhh? I don’t have an album coming out, they are probably confused.”

He added, “David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It’s called “Endless River.” David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd. I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd. I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that’s 29 years ago.”

Walters also had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, “Momentary Lapse of Reason” and “The Division Bell,” or the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994. “Phew! This is not rocket science people, get a grip,” he wrote.

“The Endless River,” which features a set of songs that have been reworked from the 1993 sessions for “The Division Bell,” will arrive on Nov. 10.
