Great Bookham, Surrey, United Kingdom (1965 – present)

George Roger Waters (born 6 September 1943 in Great Bookham, Surrey, United Kingdom) is an English musician, singer-songwriter and composer.

Roger Waters was the main lyricist for the classic British rock band Pink Floyd. He, along with Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright, formed the band in 1965 and released their first album, “The Piper at the Gates of Dawn” in 1967. In 1968, Syd Barrett was replaced by guitarist/singer David Gilmour. He and Gilmour were the main creative forces behind the albums “Meddle,” “Dark Side of the Moon,” and “Wish You Were Here”; Waters eventually became the primary songwriter, being the driving force behind “Animals”, and “The Wall” as well as the sole songwriter of “The Final Cut”. Waters became well-known for being an intense perfectionist and his controlling nature alienated the rest of the band. “The Final Cut”, released in 1983, was essentially a Roger Waters solo album “performed by Pink Floyd” as the credits stated. This would be the group’s last album together. David Gilmour decided to carry on with Pink Floyd, without Waters. Waters, believing that Pink Floyd was a “non-entity” without him, sued the rest of the band to retire the Pink Floyd name. His lawsuit ultimately failed, and Pink Floyd released two more studio albums (each followed by a double live album) without him. In 2014 Pink Floyd released another studio album - The Endless River - based on the recordings of the album The Division Bell.

    Thanks for all the early Floyd music, though. That was amazing.

    He is a talented egoist who hasn't made anything worth hearing since Animals.

    Smithee1407 Yeah, what a sad stupid joke! There's a world of difference between the energetic creative young musician who drew diagrams for "A Saucerful of Secrets" and the depressed middle-aged hack who simply tried (and failed) countless times to create yet another pointlessly cynic set of entertaining songs dressed as a "concept album" for those who might listen to Art Rock as long as it's no more complex than "The Wall" and "Final Cut". As ridiculous as those albums can be, he couldn't recreate them alone. His only creative idea has been financial : Perform "The Wall" in everywhere you can, put up helicopters and walls and flying pig balloons and shit, make some money. Waters has been one of the most boring one-note people in Rock for the last 25 years. Since the late 80's he's basically been just the singer of "We don't need no education" and is intellectual enough for every idiot teenager to understand. He's been as musically irrelevant as Metallica playing Nothing Else Matters.

    Rhayader18 I totally agree with you...I mean Roger Waters had to break up Floyd and do lawsuits an be a general asshole about it and then for all these last years of his life he goes around touring the same crap (it's not crap but you know what I mean) all over the planet. I saw him live his last two tours besides the recent Wall shows and it was apparent he lost his voice LONG ago. I also saw him in '87 - he should've retired after that. After seeing David Gilmour live it really became apparent who was the musical soul of Pink Floyd. Roger might've wrote the lyrics but DG made it all come together musically. If RW was such a high and mighty artist he should've never toured all the Floyd stuff and at the same time bitched and moaned about how DG and the others were "whoring" his "baby". What a joke!

    MAROON3D I don't know how to do that. I don't want to, either. Anyway, I think "The Wall" is one of the average Pink Floyd albums, and re-performing for 33 years is a cash-in by a creatively-bankrupt Waters. Now that I've expressed my opinion, feel free to curse me again, you unique intellectual person.
