Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters likes Wikileaks

Posted on February 3, 2012


In December, Rolling Stone magazine’s Andy Greene asked Pink Floyd mastermind Roger Waters:

“Twenty years in the future, when people look back at 2011, what will stand out?”

Waters replied:
“What pops into my head is the Arab Spring. Also, it’s the fact that information is becoming more available to us. I think that the negative influences who would keep information from us are weakening, and the forces that are trying to get information out are strengthening. So, you might take issue with personality issues with someone like Julian Assange, but we have to thank all of the whistle blowers everywhere who take the rest to bring us the information we should have. So that’s one of the things that has changed this year. Wikileaks is a fundamentally important thing, and we should not allow it to go away.”
