About Roger Waters
Perhaps the most arrogant figure in rock music, but also one of the most brilliant. A founding member of Pink Floyd, Waters assumed control of the band after Syd Barrett stumbled into perpetual psychedelic oblivion in 1968. With increasing amounts of personal input, he led them to FM radio immortality with the Psychedelic masterpieces Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall, not to mention a string of hugely selling records that were the ONLY music to listen to for thousands of tripping teenagers from the 1970s well into the '80s. After a bitter split with the rest of the group in 1983, Waters continued to produce electronically innovative records, tinkering with the Rock Opera genre with varying results. Today, we find Waters teaming up with big guns Ennio Morricone and Eddie Van Halen (!) for a single featured on the soundtrack for Tim Roth's new movie, The Legend of 1900.
