Pink Floyd and his love of football

Within the team, the only player whose position was defined was Roger Waters, as his hands were not only good at writing songs and playing bass, but also at stopping the ball, which is why he was the goalkeeper.

For their part, Nick Mason and Richard Wright (vocalist and keyboardist) were field players, it is unknown what position they played in the matches they played.

The love for football was born because Waters and David Gilmore (guitarist, vocalist and songwriter) were fans of Arsenal, even both regularly attending Highbury to watch the Gunners games, interrupting on several occasions the recording of their album ‘Dark Side Of The Moon ‘.

One of the ways to make a connection between their two passions (music and football) was in the song ‘Fearless’ from the Meddle album, in which they paid a tribute to Liverpool, as they added the sound’ The Kop ‘in Anfield singing’ You’ll Never Walk Alone ‘.

Although the song ‘The Gunner’s Dream from The Final Cut album has no connection to football, it is said to have been created by Roger Wates while thinking about his favorite team.
