... that's even longer than the Stones (9 years) and the Who (8 years). Of course, nobody from either groups passed during the hiatus, whereas Richard Wright died in 2008... Then again, that didn't stop the other two from continuing after Brian Jones, Keith Moon and John Entwistle died. I guess it might have something to do with the unlikely probability of Waters ever returning. As good as Division Bell is, Floyd are not the same without him. After all, it's his work in the group that gets the most acclaim (the four classic albums 1973-1979).
Funny, another prog group that lost a key member are bordering a similar gap (Genesis, who at that time, had lost not one, but three).
