Pink Floyd’s Guitarist David Gilmour just shredded the possibility of the English band making a comeback in a recent interview with Planet Radio.

“No. I’m done with it,” the legendary guitarist said cementing the reason why their 2014 album “The Endless River” was their last.

He explained, “I’ve had a life in Pink Floyd for quite a lot of years, and quite a few of those years at the beginning, with Roger. And those years in what is now considered the heyday were 95 percent musically fulfilling and joyous and full of fun and laughter.

“And I certainly don’t want to let the other five percent color my view of what was a long and fantastic time together. But it has run its course, we are done, and it would be fakery to go back and do it again.”

Gilmour has no problem with former band mate Roger Waters doing tours, but according to him, doing it without their keyboardist is “wrong.”

“To do it without Rick would just be wrong. I’m all for Roger doing whatever he wants to do and enjoying himself and getting the joy he must have had out of those Wall shows. I’m at peace with all of these things. But I absolutely don’t want to go back. I don’t want to go and play stadiums. I’m free to do exactly what I want to do and how I want to do it.”

Formed in 1965, Pink Floyd had five original members: Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Richard Wright.

Gilmour joined the band in 1968 after Barrett left and they went on to produce some of the most iconic psychedelic rock albums and songs through the years such as “Comfortably Numb,” “Astronomy Domine,” “Have a Cigar,” among many others.
