Roger Waters
Though he’s more recently shared the stage with both of Pink Floyd’s other surviving members, Roger Waters says a forthcoming solo project won’t include either David Gilmour or Nick Mason.

Waters, at work on his first album since 1992′s Amused to Death, confirms to Patrick Flanary of Rolling Stone, that has already completed one song, between dates of the on-going massive tour featuring The Wall, Pink Floyd’s 1979 opus.

Fans will remember that Gilmour joined Waters on stage during a May 12, 2011 stop on the same tour at London’s 02 Arena. (The pair also performed four tracks together at a private benefit concert in 2010, though that was before only 200 invited guests.) Mason later joined Gilmour and Waters for the finale of the same May 2011 concert, playing tambourine on “Outside the Wall.”

Pink Floyd last performed as a foursome in 2005, however, at the Live 8 benefit concert. Co-founding keyboardist Richard Wright, who also regularly appeared with Gilmour, has since passed.
