Roger Waters vs. Pink Floyd – Infamous Rock Lawsuits

Pink FloydYears of battling between Roger Waters and David Gilmour over the direction of Pink Floyd had drained their partnership of its creativity. Rogers quit formally in December of 1985, assuming that would end the group. When the band started working on a Pink Floyd record without him in 1986, he went to High Court to ask that they be barred from using the name without his consent. After much legal wrangling, he ceded rights to the name to the group in exchange for the concept for ‘The Wall,’ while Floyd went on to release ‘A Momentary Lapse of Reason,’ an enormous comeback that many fans don’t feel represents the band at their best.
