Roger Goes Jamming! It's understood that on Saturday Jan. 7th Roger Waters was vacationing on St. Barths in the Carribbean. He was hanging out with Jimmy Buffett and Richie Sambora (guitarist from Bon Jovi) and, after a long lunch, the three of them decided to play an impromptu set that night. So they did. It was at La Vela restaurant, right on the harbor in Gustavia. About 100 people or so were lucky enough to be there. Richie played lead guitar, Waters played bass, and Jimmy played rhythm guitar and did the lionshare of the singing. Word is that they didn't do any Floyd songs, mostly reggae cover tunes.

"It was a great weight off my back to have a rapprochement with the three guys after all the enmity. Constantly, in my work, I am exhorting people to let go of entrenched positions, and that could be seen as hypocritical in view of the fact that, for all those years, I held an entrenched position in terms of the history and the internal politics of Pink Floyd. "So to be able to relinquish that enmity was very important to me.

If that's the only time we play together for the rest of our lives, I will reap the benefits of those few days for the rest of my life."

(Live 8) So much so that, even amid the denials, and even with Gilmour making a solo album, one wonders if that was the final performance by Pink Floyd. “It was moving,” says Waters of the quartet’s rapprochement in front of hundreds of millions. “I wrote an e-mail to Dave afterwards. I’d just seen a bunch of press cuttings, and I think I said, ‘How extraordinary to be so warmly feted by a press that’s always been so unpleasant and negative in the past.’

Roger Waters Responds Directly To A Fleeting Glimpse

Regular visitors to A Fleeting Glimpse will recall that a protest book was placed there so Roger Waters fans could express their views about Roger performing at a benefit concert for the Countryside Alliance, an organisation that condones fox hunting.

Here's how we reported the reunion


We are delighted to confirm that Pink Floyd will Reform for Live 8 with Roger Waters

Pink Floyd's Management have confirmed that David Gilmour made the decision on Friday night. (10 June) Then on Saturday Roger, Nick & Rick all agreed to participate.

This is the OFFICIAL David Gilmour statement, provided to us by Pink Floyd's Management and Pink Floyd's publicity Manager.

"Like most people I want to do everything I can to persuade the G8 leaders to make huge commitments to the relief of poverty and increased aid to the third world. It’s crazy that America gives such a paltry percentage of its GNP to the starving nations. Any squabbles Roger and the band have had in the past are so petty in this context, and if re-forming for this concert will help focus attention then it’s got to be worthwhile."

How did all this come about ? Pink Floyd's Manager told A Fleeting Glimpse that "Bob (Geldof) engineered it, he talked to David and he talked to Roger, and Roger then called David." So there you have it.

Roger Waters Manager, Mark Fenwick, also contacted us to say that this is Roger's official statement "It's great to be asked to help Bob raise public awareness on the issues of third world debt and poverty. The cynics will scoff, screw 'em! Also, to be given the opportunity to put the band back together, even if it's only for a few numbers, is a big bonus."
