He reportedly claimed to have been forced to resign from the band, and eventually a settlement was made which allowed the continuing members to use the name Pink Floyd, while some concept rights reverted to Roger.
However, years later, Roger admitted he regretted suing his band, telling the BBC: “I was wrong. Of course I was… It’s one of the few times that the legal profession has taught me something.
“Because when I went to these chaps and said, ‘Listen, we’re broke, this isn’t Pink Floyd anymore,’ they went, ‘What do you mean? That’s irrelevant, it is a label and it has commercial value.
“‘You can’t say it’s going to cease to exist… you obviously don’t understand English jurisprudence.’”
