Roger Waters was born on the 6th of September 1943. He is an English song writer and he is also a multiple instrumentalist as well. In the year 1965 he went on to form the band Pink Floyd and he did this with Nick Mason, Rick Wright and Syd Barrett. He initially served as the bassist but then he went on to be the lyricist and even the co-lead vocalist as well. They went on to achieve international success and they also released their concept album, which was called the Dark Side of the Moon. They also recorded Wish You Were Here and the Wall. By the time the 1980s came along, they had become one of the bestselling acts out there and they also sold over 250 million albums as well so you know that this is just a sign of the things that are yet to come.

They settled the dispute in the year 1987 and 18 years went by until he decided to perform with them again.

They did the group appearance as part of the live 8 global awareness event and this was the first gig they had done together since the year 1981. Of course, he has toured as a solo artist since them and he even did the Dark Side of the Moon by himself as well as a full tour.
