Happy birthday to Roger Waters! Print E-mail
Written by Matt

Roger Waters - Berlin 2013The combined wishes of the Brain Damage team, along no doubt with many of you reading this, go to Roger Waters, who celebrates his 72nd birthday today.

Roger was born in Great Bookham, Surrey, in 1943, moving to Cambridge when he was two years old. It was there that he met, and became childhood friends with, a number of key people in the story of Pink Floyd. We hope you have a great day, Roger. Many happy returns!

Of course, Roger has been extremely busy over the last few years, having successfully taken Dark Side Of The Moon on tour in 2006, which became an extended event. On completing that, the touring bug had clearly bitten strongly, as he immediately started work on a new version of The Wall - which finally opened in September 2010. That tour was spectacularly successful, wrapping up in Paris for show number 217 in September 2013. The tour was documented, and the film that came from those recordings is screened worldwide later this month. It's anticipated that this will be followed in due course with a DVD/Blu-ray release, and there is talk of his new album, potentially being accompanied by a tour next year, and Roger's autobiography too.
