has no plans to regroup with his Pink Floyd
bandmates again, despite getting fans' hopes up when the legendary rockers reunited for a one-off Live 8 performance in 2005.
The guitarist's infamous rift with bandmate Roger Waters
caused the rockers to split in the 1980s, but Gilmour has dismissed speculation of a Pink Floyd reunion because he's more interested in his solo work.
He says, "What I've been doing for the last couple of years - what I was in the middle of when Live 8 came along - was my album, and that's what I'm thinking about. I can't see why I would want to be going back to that old thing. It's very retrogressive. I want to look forward, and looking back isn't my joy.
"Roger hasn't written a lyric lately that has really been something where I've gone, 'Wow, I wish that was part of my oeuvre.' I don't know how one puts it, but going back into all that just wouldn't bring me joy. It's my time of life to be selfish - please myself."
