Roger Waters blasted his former Pink Floyd bandmate David Gilmour for banning him from the band's website in a video Tuesday. 

Waters took to Twitter to unleash his grievances on Gilmour for gatekeeping the website as well as the band's social pages, including Facebook. 

"David thinks he owns it. I think he thinks that because I left the band in 1985 that he owns Pink Floyd, that he is Pink Floyd, that I'm irrelevant and I should just keep my mouth shut," notes the former Pink Floyd bassist in the rant. 

Waters recently unveiled a socially distanced cover of Pink Floyd classic "Mother," admitting his nostalgia about his past life rocking out with his ex-bandmates.

"It did make me think, one and a half million of you have viewed our new version of 'Mother.' It really warms my heart but it doesn't bring up the question of why is this video not available on a website that calls itself The Pink Floyd website," he shared.

The musician continued, "We're not allowed to even mention such a fact on the official Pink Floyd website. This is wrong." He furthered, "We should rise up and, oh, I'll just change the name of the band to Spinal Tap and then everything will be hunky-dory."

Concluding his outburst with some thoughts on coronavirus, Waters finalized, "We live in dark, dark desperate times and we need to find ways to communicate with one another so we can act cooperatively to stop the man destroying this fragile planet that we call home."
