Pigs (three different ones)[edit]

Hey, i moved your block of text on the Pigs (Three Different Ones) to the talk page, because its a little confusing / not in the right section of the article, and i didn't really know what it was talking about. It seemed like legit information tho. Just giving you a heads up if you want to fix it. TastemyHouse Breathe, Breathe in the air 08:47, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Oh, sorry! i misread the edit history =) TastemyHouse Breathe, Breathe in the air 10:56, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Pink Floyd[edit]

Thanks for adding another reference text and some good, properly cited information to the article - we see too little of that, sadly. :) Cheers. - dharmabum 10:27, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

I've noticed him... much of them are unsourced or POV and will have to be removed, I've just been waiting for him to finish, as I got tired of running into edit conflicts. I've added much of the information about the upcoming Waters tour to the Roger Waters article (where it belongs) already, and I'll just keep a brief, sourced mention of his upcoming tour in the main article. - dharmabum 21:59, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
I've changed the Pink Floyd article. As for the "Wish You Were Here" quote, I've heard something like it before, but I can't find it in the WYWH songbook intro (which can be found here), so it must've come from another interview, but whether the quote is correctly attributed, it does appear to be correct in content. In Schaffner's Saucerful of Secrets: The Pink Floyd Odyssey is says this on page 201: Uniquely among Pink Floyd's songs, the album's title track originated as a Roger Waters poem that Gilmour ... then set to music. (Usually the tune materialized before the words.) - dharmabum 22:16, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for providing the external link for the quote, I reformatted it in the WYWH article and included it as a reference. - dharmabum 22:15, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

Waters 2006/2005[edit]

(From User talk:Coq Rouge) Actually, it was in 2005 Waters attended by satelite. Floyd(Norway) 13:43, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Details ;-) Anyway: it was definitly not 1996. Ha en god dag :-) Coq Rouge 15:10, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Waters 2007[edit]

You are stalking at me, very likely, indeed the sentence that you tagged with a "citation needed" has been there for over a year. I 've replaced it in a different paragraph, and added some info that should be found at their articles Wish you were here (album) and Animals (album). --Doktor Who 16:06, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

That's not true. This has nothing to do with your edit. But I want to know if there is any sources regarding Roger Waters playing guitar on the studio version of "Pigs". I know he plays on the live version. The Pink Floyd Encyclopedia says Gilmour played all the guitars on the song. I think you're going good work here, and I agree with you that the Waters article should say that he was the main songwriter. Floyd(Norway) 20:28, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
Hey thanks for appreciating my work, should you have any concern regarding my edits, please don't hesitate to contact me. -^_^- --Doktor Who 23:04, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
