Pink Floyd Reunion?
Guitarist won't rule out one-off show27 May 08 - Since the original line up of Pink Floyd reformed at the Live 8 concert in 2008 there has been constant speculation as to whether the band would play again.
Now guitarist David Gilmour has told 6 Music that while a tour is unlikely, he hasn’t completely ruled out the idea of another show.
He told 6 Music's Music Week: "Who knows? Who knows the future? I haven’t absolutely said 'no' to that possibility but I think that in reality any sort of long-term thing together is not going to happen.
"We did the one-off thing and that was probably enough for me but we shall see.”
Speaking at the Ivor Novello Awards - where he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement prize - he also came out in support of Amy Winehouse.
He said: “Amy is one of the absolutely outstanding sparks of great musical joy for me that has come up in the last few years. She's just fantastic and she will be around for a very long time I’m sure.”
"I haven’t absolutely said 'no' to that possibility"As for his own immediate musical future, Gilmour seems happy to take it easy for now.

He said: “It’s been a long ride so far but it’s not over yet but I have no specific plans for this moment.
“At my incredibly advantaged age - having achieved this - I’ve earned the right to sit on my a** for a little while and consider what to do next.”
