  1. “As of 2021, the net worth of Pink Floyd is $350 million.”

    The right sum is $ 745 million, if your own data is right.

    RWa – $ 310 m
    DG – $ 180 m
    SD – $ 5 m
    NM – $ 180 m
    RWr – $ 70 m
    TOT – $ 745 M

  2. Roger is NOT a member of Pink Floyd.
    All he does is talk about about FLOYD.
    Screw him.
    The wall was awesome, but PF is not *JUST* The WALL.

  3. David Bright-
    As far as Syd Barrett goes,even though he is dead,any music he made prior,as well as merchandise sold after continues to be accredited to himself,and Floyd. Many musicians net worth is greater after death, ie. Kurt Cobain, Jimmy Hendrix, just to name a couple

  4. I think David gilmour has done a great job taking over for Waters. That is a hard position to fill. Still love pinky.

  5. Jeff that would be like say David not a member because he wasn’t there front the beginning, or Syd isn’t because David took his place. Don’t sell Roger short maybe you should take the time to look at who really has mostly had his name in just about everything. I’m not saying David wasn’t pulling his weight (far from the truth). But it didn’t go far after roger left, very few live Gilmour shows and the 2 asses are still fighting. And it took roger years to get a tour together.

  6. At the end of the day dear boy just have a cigar and wonder why one member made almost double any other? Sounds like someone was either: A. A greedy thief, or B. Had a better lawyer. Or C. This is clickbait. Or D. All of the above.

  7. Is it just me, or does anyone else think that Roger Waters looks a lot like the American actor, Richard Gere?
    Waters was not Pink Floyd, but he did write most of the songs, Post Sid, came up with most of the creative ideas, and seemed to me to be the main driving force amongst them. I have heard it said by a Floyd fan that, for a lot of people, the main thing they liked about their music was Dave Gilmour’s guitar playing, which is also true. Some will always maintain that the Syd period of the group was the best. Whatever ones own feelings about it, I love all incarnations of the group. What gets me is when Nick Mason, or any of the other three, whinge on about Roger being too Dominant. Oh no. Not another album about his deceased father, dying during the war and all that, inflatable pigs, films, videos, and so on. Like he said about it. Try coming up with some new material yourself, then. You know what I mean? See you on the dark side of the moon. 🚀🌚

  8. The best member of Pink Floyd was David Gilmour , one of the best voice of any band and the guitar player , he carried Pink Floyd since 1983 when Roger left the band and for me one of the best albums is Division Bells 1994

  9. Does this factor in Nick Mason’s car collection? He has one car worth 50-60 million and another thats close to 20.

  10. Blah, blah, blah. They have a lot of money, who cares they earned it. We all listen. So, Just enjoy the music!

  11. Waters lyrics in wall was good and David sang,played,composed music and contributed to the albums.Roger refused to acknowledge nor give credit to others contribution and insulted them as having no creativity.It is good for PF that waters left .David was brilliant in singing and lead Guitar play by him was outstanding.
    While waters playing is just average in bass guitar.David lead the group for sometime and released two albums which were successful moderately.Waters pink concept in wall alone is not enough and je is no Syd who was at a higher level.All of them made good money but waters alone is cribbing like a asshole.Waters is a spent forceforce no longer relevant to PF.

  12. I’m a huge Roger fan. For me it’s about his lyrics on Dark Side, Wish You…, The Wall and Animals, however, surely without all the members joining together to produce these amazingly evocative pieces of music and proper psychedelic rock, then it just wouldn’t be Pink Floyd?
    As we know it’s all about Dave or Roger isn’t it? Who’s the best blah blah blah…. However, I ask myself would Pink Floyd have been the same without Roger or Dave? I think that without Roger there would be no Pink Floyd as we know and love, yet without Dave I think that there would. Roger would’ve found another guitarist 🎸, almost certainly not as good as the legend that is Dave Gilmour BUT definitely no one could write the lyrics and music that Roger produced and resulted in Pink Floyd.

  13. Just to correct you, the final album in which RW wrote with PF was called the Final Cut, not the Final count

  14. Well considering Nick Mason owns a Ferrari 250 GTO, and a GTO sold in 2018 for 70 million dollars, I would question your figures about Nick’s wealth.
    He bought his cars well, its known that Nick’s car collection is worth more than he made from Pink Floyd.

  15. Hi Eray. The final album with “the misery” as a band member was The Final Cut. Excellent writing otherwise; you should read my Aramaic. Bless.

  16. Rogers Waters deixou a banda em 1985. Houve uma disputa judicial, pois ele tentou ficar com a marca e o controle do Floyd, no entanto, perdeu e seguiu carreira solo. Com o sem Rogers Waters, o Pink Floyd foi uma das maiores bandas de todos os tempos.

  17. Are you forgetting Mason’s car Collection? He owns s Ferrari 250 GTO that’s worth at least $75M plus others.

  18. So Roger the proclaimed Socialist has all this money! Seems like he should donate most all of it to charities that he preaches to us to do. Hypocrite

  19. part of RW 310 is partially out of “solo” projects so part of that 310 isn’t necessarily calculated in total value of “Pink Floyd Music Publishers LTD” or “Pink Floyd Music Publishers LTD (1987)” same goes for parts of the rest. DG has solo projects and so do the rest. and figure it was Nick Mason who underwrote the world tour back in ’87-’88 so taking the risk (yeah, risk. sure) he probably got not only a return on investment in the tour but participation as member of the band. sweet deal indeed! I’m surprised Syd had 5 mil from two perspectives. one being it’s only one record but a hit so he earned it but also that the powers that be ensured he got his money and not take advantage of him. it’s been said the band also made sure he got his cut of all of it.

  20. Roger is the richest because he wrote the bulk of their stuff. Publishing royalties are the money. All other members outside of Sid have the same net worth leaving me to wonder if all post Waters was a group effort since I don’t own any “new Floyd “.

  21. My top 5 Pink Floyd albums are
    1) Wish You Were Here
    2) The Wall
    3) Animals
    4) Dark Side of the Moon
    5) The Final Cut

    So yes, Roger Waters is Pink Floyd, or more accurately Pink Floyd is Roger Waters!

  22. They are both geniuses (David&Roger) not to downplay the contributions of all the other members but they are all greater together than the sum of their individual parts. I just wish they could leave their egos on stage so they could go carry on making the world a better place with their incredible music….great thanks pink
