    Roger Waters, a founding member of the classic rock band Pink Floyd, said Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg offered him a lot of money to use the band's 1979 classic "Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2" in an Instagram advertisement and he refused, Rolling Stone reported.

    "It arrived this morning, with an offer for a huge, huge amount of money," Waters said at a recent pro-Julian Assange event. "And the answer is,{expletives}"

    He added: "I only mention that because this is an insidious movement of them to take over absolutely everything. I will not be a party to this {expletive}, [Mark] Zuckerberg."

    Far Out Magazine previously reported that the band refused to allow their music to be used for any advertisements that weren't for a "good cause."

    The last concert I attended was Roger Waters. I have to admit sometimes I question his good causes, but at least he does have principles.

    It was a good concert, BTW.
