    https://www.guitarworld.com/news/dav...oyd-live-shows

    who should be the keyboardist?

    To be frank, unless it involves Roger I don't really care. - it's just David's solo show.

    And it won't involve Roger.

      Who should? Jon Carin, of course. But who would? It would probably be either the guy who played on "Hey Hey Rise Up" or someone from David's last touring band.

        It would highly surprise me if it did.

          I prefer Nick Mason to continue with Saucerful of Secrets. He's playing the Floyd material I like the most, pre-Dark Side.
          Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
          Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

            I would have to second that, a reformed Floyd would be mostly the same ol' same ol'. Wish You Were Here, Money, Comfortably Numb etc. As good as those are, I enjoyed seeing Saucerful Of Secrets and hearing stuff like Cymbaline and Lucifer Sam. I pretty much like all Floyd but I'm more leaning towards the early stuff these days, that material intrigues me. Especially the Syd era,

            Actually I like the idea of Gilmour joining Saucerful Of Secrets and then renaming it Pink Floyd.

              Roger is the former member I'd least like to see.

                  Roger puts on a great show for sure and the sound he gets indoors is truly amazing, but I've seen him enough times live so I probably won't be going again. We are going to see Nick in November (hopefully this is a rescheduled tour) so I'm really looking forward to that. Not sure what I think about David jumping back in it depends on what he's planning I guess.

                    Jon Carin would be optimum on keys etc.

                    I'm just not that excited about fragmented bands playing greatest hits or songs they've done 1,000's of times. With Rick passing, just let it go gracefully. Like Yes should have done with Squire. Why have a weak derivative shadow of yourself, other than having to make a living and please die hards. lol

                    I saw "Floyd" in 87, was awesome. They had a Guy playing bass who was way better than Roger, and people covering his vocals pretty well. Not to mention 10 or so people on stage... But it wasn't 100% Floyd... It was enjoyable to see once.

                      I just never got into Roger’s dark and depressing lyrics… I mean I listened to The Wall in full and just wanted to hug Roger by the end of it and be like let out the tears it’s ok there there lol

                      i still haven’t listened to the final cut

                      for me David Nick and Richard were far more Floyd then Roger


                      as for yes they had so many lineup changes that to compare lineups is almost silly would anyone say the close to the edge lineup was derivative of the first lineup… no of course not

                      and the quest is fast becoming a top 10 album for me and might become top 5 but I can’t think of which of the 5 I would be willing to not have in my top 5

                        So you're more of a fan of the stuff after 1983? Because Roger is pretty crucial to Golden Age Floyd, that run of albums from 1971-1983.

                          I think you should check out Meddle, Dan.

                          It's in my top 3 for Floyd and there's nothing depressing about the album or its lyrical content.

                            Yeah things don't get somber until Wish You Were Here.

                              For my money DSotM is hella somber Also I don't classify TFC as part of the glory run... Or as 'good'

                              While I'm contradicting Luna might as well go fer the double shot 😋
