Default Most Talented Member of Pink Floyd

I reckon it was David Gilmore.
Who would have the right to own the brand in your opinion regardless of lawsuits gone by?
Without Gilmores guitar would Floyd be Floyd?
Or was it Water's lyrical contribution and instrumentals?
Maybe you think it was Syd who was Pink Floyd.
Who was the most influential of the members of the group in your opinion?
Discuss.

well rogers is an amazing bassist...
Gilmour is an amazing guitarist with his awesomely slow solos
Syd i personally didnt much care for.
gilmour and rogers had some awesome lyrics
syd was good, but without him the band thrived.
Animals and The Wall were mostly the work of Rogers.

I'm gunna have to go with rogers was the god of pink floyd in the later days. Syd was the god in the early days. although i do prefer pink floyds later works. So for me im gunna have to go with rogers.

Yes but Syd's Floyd were nothing like Gilmore's Floyd and they may aswell have been seperate bands.
Do you think Division Bell shows that Gilmore was the second Floyd or does the Wall show it was really Water's who had it?
Personally I know it is a tough one but when they battled in the courts they were arguing who had the most artistic influence. Would DSOTM be great without Gilmore's guitar?
Forget who was in the band first as like I said phase two PF was different and I reckon it was down to Gilmore.
I love them all and Syd inspired later Floyd to the peaks of musical genius but I have to say I think it was Gilmore's playing that did it.
I even heard Waters wrote lyrics to his guitar but I say that fearing Urban my old friend may have proof against me on this one as I am thin on facts about it!!!
I recall as a teenager both Floyd and Waters went and did their own shows. Who would you lot have gone to see on the same night?
I have to say mine would be Gilmore as even on Syd's tracks he came in didn't he to do a lot of the work for poor Syd when he packed in the lsd and weed lifestyle went home to mom and never went back again. I love the Wall but feel Pink Floyd's magic is in Gilmore's guitar playing then complimented by the others and that his playing is what we all love now. He even worked on the lyrics too....urban can correct me if I am wrong.
Would waters stuff just be very depressing without hope had it not been for Gilmores magical solo's?
Discuss this with everyone with no nonsense this time. This is opinionated debate and not factual.
And no cheap shots RT!!!
If they had to assign one of them to the hall of fame which one would it be?
Who made wish you were here and Division Bell? Who brought out the positive most?
If it were lennon mcCartney it would be easy to choose.....Harrisson!!!
But in this case I think the court of God would hand Pink Floyds force to Gilmore. Remember too that Syd's influence over PF2 was just in memory not in actual input.
I know this a tough one but let's see what others think with annecdotes and facts etc.

Well he only did one record, so obviously he's not the most important...

I get the feeling you don't know what I was talking about.

Finally! That's exactly what these forums are for and not a platform for spouting rhetoric.
