and i certrainly did not mean to make light of the...health situation.
and you would be surprised...there's plenty left. i can't wait for what's left. it is what i...we...have to look forward to. little buckaroo.
always something left.

But left entirely to himself he tends to be musically dull (well dull isn't really the right word, but his music just lacks something), often repeating the same musical themes over and over and over. Gilmour can't write lyrics, but he is an amazing musician and can come up with many good song ideas but it's no secret that he can have trouble "pulling them together" to create strong, complete songs.
Roger is closer to Lennon, in that he's a strong lyricist and strong songwriter, David is closer to Paul in that he's a far better musician, but can't write lyrics, or build strong, complete songs with strong musical themes. Roger is a better songwriter, but not as musically diverse and creative as Dave, yet Dave's solo albums and the later Floyd albums sold better.
