Roger Waters Bio
Roger Waters was born on September 6, 1943 in Great Bookham, England about twenty miles from London. His father, Eric Waters, served in the British army during World War II and was unfortunately killed in combat when Roger was only five months old. Later in Roger's career, he used his father's death and the war as an inspiration for his song writing. When Roger was 14 years old he made his first attempt to learn to play the guitar. However, it wasn't until he attended Regent Street Polytechnic in London, that he began to take his musical career seriously. He got involved with people who played in bands and was encouraged by one of his teachers to improve his guitar skills.
In 1965, Roger Waters co-founded a band with his childhood friend, Syd Barrett. The pair of them, along with Richard Wright and Nick Mason formed, what is now one of rock music's most critically acclaimed and commercially successful rock bands of all time, Pink Floyd. Roger Waters was in the band until 1985, achieving many accomplishments in his 20 year Pink Floyd career. The band grew to become a four-time Grammy Award winning act and created 14 recorded albums while having sold over 200 million album copies worldwide. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 and into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005.
Roger Waters recorded his first solo album in 1984 titled The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking. The album dealt with Waters' feelings about his failed marriage to Judy Trim. It also had lyrics about topics like sex, the pros and cons of monogamy, and family life. Roger's album received mixed reviews, with Rolling Stone's Kurt Loder describing it as a "strangely static, faintly hideous record", while others like Mike DeGagne of Allmusic praised the album for its "ingenious symbolism" and "brilliant use of stream of consciousness within a subconscious realm". Waters went on tour for his album accompanied by guitarist Eric Clapton. With poor ticket sales, some of the shows at larger venues had to be cancelled, resulting in an overall unsuccessful tour.
In 1986, Waters contributed several songs to the soundtrack of the movie When the Wind. In 1987, he released an album titled Radio K.A.O.S. It was a concept album about a mute man named Billy who could hear radio waves in his head. Waters followed the release with a supporting tour later in that year. The album and the tour received much better than his last attempt.
Roger Waters signed a worldwide deal with Columbia Records in 1990. He then released his third solo studio album, Amused to Death in 1992. Amused to Death is heavily influenced by the events of the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 and the Gulf War. The album grew to become Waters' most critically acclaimed solo recording. Waters himself described the record as one of the best of his career. The album sold over 1 million copies and contained a hit single, "What God Wants, Pt. 1" that hit #4 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. Waters didn't go on tour with the album until seven years later during in In the Flesh tour, where he performed both solo and Pink Floyd material.
On July 2, 2005, Waters reunited with Pink Floyd for a performance at the Live 8 concert in London. The performance reviews extremely positive reviews, as fans were pleased to see the band reunited. In 2006, Waters began his two-year would tour called The Dark Side of the Moon Live Tour. The show featured both Pink Floyd songs and Waters' solo material. For the first time in over two decades, the show featured a complete live performance of the 1973 Pink Floyd album, The Dark Side of the Moon.
On April 12, 2010, Roger Waters announced The Wall Live tour, which will include a complete performance of The Wall, Pink Floyd's eleventh studio album which was release in 1979. The tour will begin in North America in September 2010 and will be ending in Europe in June 2011. As of June 2010, there are 54 shows scheduled for North America in a less than 100 day span.
