Mike Portnoy Slams New Pink Floyd Album As Disrespectful

(Prog) Mike Portnoy has slammed news of a first Pink Floyd album in 20-years as "disrespectful". The former Dream Theater and current The Winery Dogs drummer is a self-proclaimed Floyd fanatic and he took to his official Facebook page to hit out at the news that Floyd will release new album The Endless River in October.

He says: "What's this about a new Pink Floyd album? Last I checked, Waters is no longer in the band and Wright and Barrett are dead. If these are leftovers from The Division Bell sessions, then just put them on a The Division Bell special-edition release.

"It's disrespectful to Roger and everything he built for all those years. Just do a solo album, Dave. In my opinion, the Pink Floyd heyday was Atom Heart Mother through The Wall, and those were mainly driven by Roger - conceptually, musically, everything." more on this story
