In an interview with Joe Rogan, Pink Floyd maestro Roger Waters begrudgingly answered the question of an intended sync of Dark Side of the Moon album and The Wizard of Oz.

After laughing and calling bulls**t, the rock icon admitted he does love a story regarding the sync myth.

A tale was told to Waters regarding a police officer pulling over Willie Nelson's tour bus for weaving on a road. The officer stopped the bus and then searched it.

"He goes in," explains Waters, "he goes through and he's trying to find people with dope because it's just full of marijuana smoke. Eventually he gets to the back of the bus where there's a private compartment. He opens the door and goes in, and there's Willie Nelson. And the story is that Willie Nelson is listening to The Dark Side of the Moon and watching The Wizard of Oz on the TV.

"And I don't believe it for a minute, but I like the story!"
