In a new interview with Rolling Stone, David Gilmour effectively announced the end of Pink Floyd, saying, in regard to the band, "I think I can safely say goodbye to that now."

When he was asked if Pink Floyd were "done forever," Gilmour had this to say:

"Yeah, for me it is. I've enjoyed that part of my life; that life has given me so much. There's been a lot of joy, a lot of laughter, a lot of creative satisfaction. We've had a lot of good companionship for 95 percent of our time together. I wouldn't want that five percent that was a little more sour to make my view of it less enjoyable.

"All things must pass. All things must come to an end. I don't want to go back there. I've done it."

In the interview, Gilmour also discusses his new solo album, Rattle That Lock.
