The Wall is my favorite
"I still think some of the music is incredibly naff, but The Wall is
conceptually brilliant. At the time I thought it was Roger listing
all the things that can turn a person into an isolated human being. I
came to see it as as one of the luckiest people in the world issuing
a catalogue of abuse and bile against people who'd never done
anything to him. Roger was taking more and more of the credits. In
the songbook for this album against Comfortably Numb it says Music by
Gilmour and Waters. It shouldn't. He did the lyrics. I did the music.
I kept finding hundreds of little things like that. Shouldn't bitch,
but one does feel unjustly done."
"The recording was very tense, mainly because Roger was starting to
go a bit mad. This was the record when he fell out badly with Rick.
Rick has a natural style, a very specific piano style, but he doesn't
come up with pieces easily, or to order. Which is a problem when
other people are worrying about who did what and who should get
the credit. There was even talk of Roger and Dave elbowing me out and
carrying on as a duo. There were points during The Wall when Roger
and Dave were really carrying the thing. Rick was useless, and I
wasn't very much help to anyone either."
"Generally Nick worked hard and played well on The Wall. He even
worked out a way of reading music for the drums. But there was one
track called Mother which he really didn't get. So I hired Jeff
Porcaro to do it. And Roger latched on to this idea, the way he
always did with my ideas, and began to think, is Nick really
During the sessions for The Wall, Richard Wright was basically forced
out of Pink Floyd.
"Roger came up with the whole album on a demo, which everyone felt
was potentially very good but musically very weak. Very weak indeed.
Bob [Ezrin], Dave and myself worked on it to make it more
interesting. But Roger was going through a big ego thing at the time,
saying that I wasn't putting enough in, although he was making it
impossible for me to do anything. The crunch came when we all went
off on holiday towards the end of the recording. A week before the
holiday was up I got a call from Roger in America, saying come over
immediately. Then there was this band meeting in which Roger told me
he wanted me to leave the band. At first I refused. So Roger stood up
and said that if I didn't agree to leave after the album was
finished, he would walk out then and there and take the tapes with
him. There would be no album, and no money to pay off our huge debts.
So I agreed to go. I had two young kids to support. I was terrified.
Now I think I made a mistake. It was Roger's bluff. But I really
didn't want to work
with this guy anymore."
"We had a studio in the south of France where Rick was staying. There
rest of us had rented houses 20 miles away. We'd all go home at
night, and we'd say to Rick, Do what you like, here all these tracks,
write something, play a solo, put some stuff down. You've got all
evening every evening to do it. All the time we were there, which was
several months, he did nothing. He just wasn't capable of playing
