LONDON, April 3 (UPI) -- David Gilmour wants Pink Floyd fans holding their breath for a band reunion to exhale.

The guitarist says that there have been plenty of big-money offers since the iconic British progressive rock group reunited for last year's Live 8 concert in London. But Gilmour does not foresee anything happening in that regard.

"I've kind of left that behind," says Gilmour, who begins the North American leg of a tour promoting his new solo album, "On An Island," Tuesday in New York. "It's just not something that is big in my mind at all at the moment.

"I've been working with a different group of people. I'm very happy and satisfied working with the little team I've got around me these days, and I don't see myself going back into the Pink Floyd thing."

Gilmour has Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright in his touring band, while drummer Nick Mason will be part of bassist Roger Waters' band, which is touring later this year. All of the musicians have agreed that they'd consider playing again as Pink Floyd for other benefit occasions such as Live 8.
