"Dear Friends..."

Roger Waters was one of the founding members of the 1960's band Pink Floyd, and has on occasion performed with the progressive rock group over the years.

However, Waters left the band in 1985 and has his own solo act that he performs.  This has led some fans to be confused in thinking that he still currently performs with Pink Floyd -- leaving them to ask when his 'new' album is going to be released.

After one-to-many fans have pestered the rock legend he apparently had enough of the questions, and decided to take to his Facebook page to clear up any questions on whether he is involved in the upcoming Pink Floyd Release.

"Dear Friends," he wrote, "Some people have been asking Laurie, my wife, about a new album I have coming out in November. Errhh? I don't have an album coming out. They are probably confused. David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It's called 'Endless River.' David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd. I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd. I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that's 29 years ago. I had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, 'Momentary Lapse of Reason' and 'The Division Bell,' nor the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994, and I have nothing to do with 'Endless River.' Phew! This is not rocket science people, get a grip."

Waters also took the time to comment on the situation going on in the middle east between Israel and Gaza.

"On another subject, my recent trip to Bruxelles was very moving. To listen to the testimony of some of those present in Gaza during the euphemistically named Operation Protective Edge, July and August 2014, was deeply disturbing. I am still nonplussed by the acquiescence of the governments of the U.S.A., U.K. and EU to the policies of the current Israeli administration. Should we encourage our leaders to sue for a peaceful solution or not? ... Whatever you decide, let us all agree that, 'To stand by silent and indifferent is the greatest sin of all."
