In late December 1967, Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason approached David Gilmour Autograph Examples and asked him if he would be interested in joining the band to cover for the increasingly erratic Barrett. Gilmour accepted; they initially intended to continue with Barrett as a non-performing songwriter. One of the group’s business partners, Peter Jenner, said: “The idea was that Dave would … cover for Barrett’s eccentricities and when that got to be not workable, Syd was just going to write. Just to try to keep him involved.” By March 1968, working with Barrett had become too difficult; he agreed to leave the band and the others committed to moving on without him.
After Barrett’s departure, Gilmour sang much of Pink Floyd’s lead vocals; Waters and keyboardist Richard Wright also occasionally sang lead. After the successes of The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, Waters took greater control of the band, writing and singing lead on most of Animals and The Wall. Wright fired during the sessions for The Wall; the relationship between Gilmour and Waters deteriorated during the making of the eponymous film, and during recording sessions for The Final Cut. The final Pink Floyd performance of The Wall took place on 17 June 1981, at Earl’s Court, London; it was Pink Floyd’s last appearance with Waters for almost 25 years.
Since their Live 8 appearance in 2005, David Gilmour has repeatedly said that there will be no Pink Floyd reunion. With the death of Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright in September 2008, another reunion of the core group members became impossible. On 7 November 2014, Pink Floyd released The Endless River. Gilmour stated that it is Pink Floyd’s last album, saying: “I think we have successfully commandeered the best of what there is … It’s a shame, but this is the end.” There was no tour to support the album, as Gilmour felt it was “kind of impossible” without Wright. In August 2015, Gilmour reiterated that Pink Floyd were “done” and that to reunite without Wright “would just be wrong”.
