Bob Ezrin Tried To Make Pink Floyd Rap

(Classic Rock) Producer Bob Ezrin tried to introduce rap music to Pink Floyd album A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, he's admitted.

But David Gilmour hated the idea and vetoed it, meaning the band's 1987 record their first without Roger Waters was recorded without elements of the then cutting-edge pop movement.

Ezrin tells ZME Music: "I became fascinated with rap I'm an early adopter. I brought some in when we were doing A Momentary Lapse Of Reason. I brought some to David Gilmour, going, 'Boy, I think this stuff with a rock beat would be awesome.'

"He said, 'Oh my God, that would be terrible!' He couldn't believe it. He hated the idea."

Meanwhile, the producer has also admitted he refused his first invitation to work on Deep Purple's new album, Now What?! and only changed his mind after he saw the band live. more on this story
