Days after pairing up for a charity gig, Roger Waters has accepted an offer from former Pink Floyd bandmate David Gilmour to join him during a performance of “The Wall.”
Waters broke the news on a posting on his Facebook page, where the rock legend recounted the events which transpired to reunite the two during the Hoping Foundation Benefit Evening, held at Kiddington Hall on July 10th in Oxfordshire, England.
“I think it was David himself, came up with this ‘Wouldn’t it be funny,’ idea,” Waters wrote on his Facebook page July 14. “What if he (David that is) were to sing the old Teddy Bears song ‘To Know Him Is To Love Him’ with me (Roger that is), what with us having been so famously at each other’s throats for years and years. Get it!!!”
According to Waters, Gilmour's persistence in getting him to reunite onstage for the benefit finally pushed the right button by promising something in return – appearing at one of Waters’ The Wall concerts to perform “Comfortably Numb.”
