Roger Waters

Roger Waters was a primary creative force in Pink Floyd from 1965 to 1983. He first met Syd Barrett, who would become the band's lead singer and guitarist, during his school days when both attended a Saturday art class. He moved to London to study architecture at Regent Street Polytechnic and there formed a band with drummer Nick Mason and keyboardist Rick Wright; he played bass and sang. Barrett joined them, forming Pink Floyd. Though Barrett was the band's main songwriter at first, Waters wrote or co-wrote three songs on the first LP, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (August 1967), including the solo composition "Take Up Thy Stethoscope and Walk." By the time of the group's second album, A Saucerful of Secrets (June 1968), Barrett had been replaced by David Gilmour and Waters had begun to take a more prominent role, contributing three songs and one co-composition to the LP. He also wrote or co-wrote all but one of the tunes for the band's soundtrack to the film More (July 1969), while his first solo work came on Ummagumma (November 1969), a two-LP set that consisted of one disc of live recordings and a second disc on which each bandmember contributed his own tracks. As of Atom Heart Mother (October 1970), Pink Floyd began to work up its material as a group, though Waters still contributed the sole composition "If." Working with Ron Geesin, he wrote the soundtrack for The Body (December 1970), his first work outside Pink Floyd. The band's next album, Meddle (November 1971), was entirely group written. But Waters wrote or co-wrote eight of the ten selections on Obscured by Clouds (June 1972), Pink Floyd's soundtrack for the film The Valley.

Pink Floyd's recordings were moderately successful through 1972. But The Dark Side of the Moon (March 1973), for which Waters wrote all the lyrics and some of the music, was a commercial breakthrough that became one of the most successful albums in rock history. (He was the sole author of the album's Top Ten hit, "Money.") He took an increasingly dominant role in the writing of subsequent Pink Floyd albums, writing all the lyrics and collaborating on the music for Wish You Were Here (September 1975), writing most of Animals (February 1977) and The Wall (November 1979), and writing all of The Final Cut (March 1983). All were million sellers, with The Wall in particular rivaling the sales of The Dark Side of the Moon. (Waters was the sole author of "Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2," a gold, number one single drawn from The Wall.)

Following the release of The Final Cut, Pink Floyd broke up and its members launched solo careers. Waters re-emerged with The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking (April 1984), which went gold. He followed with Radio K.A.O.S. (June 1987) and went on tour to promote the release. Meanwhile, David Gilmour's solo album About Face (February 1984) was also a gold seller, but he was discouraged by that showing and recruited Mason and Wright to re-form Pink Floyd. Waters sued, seeking an injunction to prevent the trio from touring as Pink Floyd without him, but he lost the case, and the Gilmour-led Pink Floyd went on to tour and recorded successfully without him.

Following the fall of the Berlin Wall, Waters organized an all-star performance of The Wall in Berlin on July 21, 1990. It was filmed and recorded, resulting in the album The Wall: Live in Berlin (September 1990). He released a third solo album, Amused to Death (September 1992), but did not tour, though he made an appearance at a benefit concert in 1993. He spent much of the 1990s working on an opera, Ça Ira, set during the French Revolution. But in July and August 1999, he mounted his first U.S. tour in 12 years. It was so successful that he returned for a second leg in June and July 2000, and the concerts served as the basis for the two-CD set In the Flesh Live. Waters was not heard from for several years after that, although a collection of singles and album tracks, Flickering Flame: The Solo Years, Vol. 1, appeared internationally (but not in the U.S.) in May 2002. In July 2005, Waters reunited with Gilmour, Mason, and Wright for a one-off Pink Floyd performance at the Live 8 benefit concert in London's Hyde Park. Ça Ira finally emerged on disc in October 2005 and topped the Billboard magazine classical chart. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

Since Pink Floyd broke up, Waters has done great things and Gilmour has done great things. But the group - all 4 of them - was definitely far greater than the sum of its parts. Kinda like the 4 Beatles, who all did great stuff individually but never so great as what they did together.
gilmour and watersare both exceptional its not a contest. enjoy them both...
jazegray
Listen no bigger fan then myself, Dave and Floyd are truly great. Roger, like him or not is what made Floyd what they are today.Roger started to take control about the same time that all the great music really started, wish you here,animals up until the wall This is no coincidence! that said Dave and P.F. nailed D.B




Dont forget that this guy is looking to make good in the world, and make his music for all to enjoy.
Roger Waters is awesome and so is Pink Floyd
Brian Adams is perfect in this track.
Creation of Roger waters radio kaos showed his genius yet, he was flawed in his life.one person does not make a band.
methvinpaint i n g s
Don't miss Roger. Can't name a single song he's done since Pink Floyd. Hmmmm.
riverman172
If you don't like people " bashing" Israel, your antinonsemet i c . How do you like it? Non Jew hater. We have a card to pull too when we can't get our way. Peace bud.
Love Pink Floyd - too bad Waters has decided bashing Israel is more important than music.
Pink Floyd, was a part of my awakening, and I will always be forever listening to their music.

I took my daughter to see Roger Waters The Wall tour in 2010 and he is a jackass! In my country talking s**t about America to AMERICANS! Needless to say it did not go over well with the crowd! He then tried to redeem his self but he never did quite recover...bu t Pink Floyd as band and their music amazing...th i s is what I grew up on!!
Amused to Death as good as legit Floyd, almost
jmerrill996
According to the interview I have a CD of with Roger Waters, he would gladly play at anytime with David Gilmour. And if anyone needs proof, check out this: http://www.y o u t u b e . c o m / w a t c h ? v = h U Y z Q a C C t 2 o The look on Waters face says it all.
They won't go fishin with me but I can put on headphones and smile!
justinmhoran , not true...Gilmo u r sings on Young Lust on the Wall; not Wright.
Two different blues players. Pink Anderson and Floyd Council. Syd came up with the name. what did I win??!! next question!
heres a simple pink Floyd trivia question? who is the band named after?
You all are too young to appreciate masterpieces
justinmhoran
First it's spelled Gilmour. Second I thought Roger's version was at most OK. It just doesn't get any better than Gilmour, Hendrix, and Page in that order or at least close to it. But don't forget it was Richard Wright who sings on all the versions with Gilmour until his recent death. Live in Gdansk is one of the best Dave's ever done. Period.

Roger is one of the best, his compositions carried PF to success for the longest time. Now he's doing it by himself. Kudos for him!

roger is a peice of s**t !
I wouldn't say roger is a a**hole. Ive seen a lot of interviews with him. In a Pete Townsend interview I recorded he said that he is very good friends and close with Gilmour AND Waters. He said Gilmour is VERY easy to get along with, very even tempered and straight forward, someone who its easy to get to know. He said Roger is NOT easy to get know, not straight forward and not even tempered.Tha t doesn't mean hes a a**hole tho.Ill take it from Pete since I think he knows him better than you or I.
Amen! -rgbc
Why does it always have to be about Waters vs Gilmour ? It's like comparing Jesus with Mohammed , put them together, throw in Wright and Mason and you have a virtuosic spiritual experience closer than any god we'll ever know
great artist, but prob one if not the biggest a**hole in music
I LOVE ROGER WATERS. He is a musical genius.

I saw Division Bell and Momentary Lapse at Gillette Stadium. Nothing compares to Roger Waters THE WALL in my home town of Bahston at Fenway Pahk box seats. PRICELESS!!
Saw Roger Do The Wall Tour Last Year in Melbourne. was simply the greatest show i have ever been too. amazing. cant wait for it to be on DVD.
sorry... last summer and discovered scalpers wanted $400 at least for tix, which was about $327 more than I had. Decided I would try to hear show (The Wall) from outside. Bought 3 4 Locos to drown my sorrows. Show started and was remarkably loud, and dry ice smoke wafted down the street. I ambled up closer, and a dude sitting with his uncomfortabl y numb pal asked me if I was going in. I said "I wish." He then offered me a "miracle." (Free ticket for you non-Deadhead s ) , coz his friend was too f
Strolled down to Fenway park ticketless la

Rog, get yer a.s back in the billiard room and make a new album. It's been over 20 years. We both ain't getting any younger. Thanks! And your wall show was fn great. Peace buddy.
Love Waters And Gilmour, they both did amazing things with music that nobody else can replicate.
Waters is without a doubt the genius that was Pink Floyd. Gilmour is great, Waters is God!
beefcake!
I love his demo version of Money!

The conflict in between Israel and Palestine is not between the lawful government and terrorists but between two peoples who both have claim to the same land. The tendency to characterize the Palestinian cause as that only put forward by terrorists and radicals is propaganda. There are many people fiercely opposed to violent confrontatio n (such as terrorism and air strikes) that still believe that the Palestinian people as with all people deserve a chance at self-determi n a t i o n and freedom.
Roger and David are the best on my planet, equally brilliant as P.F. or on their own. It's win - win!
Momentary Laspe of Reason tour...Was at indoor and outdoor shows @ Oakland Coliseum back in late 80's early 90's.....Sim p l y the Best concerts I have ever been too..... Would love to see one more before I go to the Great Gig in the sky! :)
riverman172
Rogs the wall concert, the best concert I have ever seen. Just amazing. When rog hits the wall and the picture busts apart right from where he hit it. Fna!
I have become comfortably numb
kvons1
All in all it was just a Britt in the waul!
shffrr
Great Artist....un t i l he starts spuwing his polictical BS!
You guys, Pink Floyd is all about the music, not religion or politics. Just enjoy this. (:
Randy Jackson plays bass on some of ''Amused to Death.''

Liquid, not a stretch at all.

Roger Waters is one of my favorite artists and I don't think that it's stretch to say one of the most creative artist's of the last 45 years.
