Waters announces he is officially leaving Pink Floyd in a letter to the band's record company. "We'd been having these meetings in which Roger said, 'I'm not working with you guys again,' Gilmour says. "He'd say to me, 'Are you going to carry on?' And I'd say, quite honestly, 'I don't know. But when we're good and ready, I'll tell everyone what the plan is. And we'll get on with it.' I think partly his letter was to gear us up into doing something.'"
