Roger Waters is best known for forming one of rock's most legendary groups, Pink Floyd. He is the group's bass player and one of the lead vocalists as well as the band's chief songwriter and lyricist, which cements his place forever in English rock's Hall of Fame.
He was born in Surrey in the south of England, near London on September 6, 1943. His father was originally a conscientious objector, but ended up volunteering for the armed forces during World War II and was tragically killed when Roger was just a baby.
He formed Pink Floyd in mid-sixties along with Richard Wright, Syd Barrett and Nick Mason. When Barrett left the band in 1967 he took the helm as the songwriter and is today responsible for writing some of rock and roll's best loved songs and music.
He left the band in 1985 citing irreconcilable artistic differences, but has since rejoined them on stage for special performances such as Live 8. Since leaving Pink Floyd he has continued to work on his solo career and has released three concept albums and a movie soundtrack. His solo work has not garnered the same kind of legendary status that his work with Pink Floyd has.
Together the band produced three of the top 30 concept albums of all time including: "Dark Side of the Moon" which was released in 1973 and voted number one; "The Wall" released in 1979 and voted tenth and their 1983 album "The Final Cut", which was voted 21st. Interestingly for one considered to be one of the world's greatest rock musicians of all time, he is partially tone deaf and used to have his guitars tuned by the group's keyboardist.
Roger Waters has been married three times and has three children, two with his second wife and one with his third. His son Harry now works and tours with his father playing keyboards.
