Roger WatersOur heartiest best wishes go to Roger Waters, who celebrates his 69th birthday today (Thursday, September 6th).

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 - the Brain Damage team, and quite a number of our visitors who have (as in previous years) asked us to pass on their best wishes, too - 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 has been spectacularly successful, wrapping up recently in Quebec City with one of his large outdoor versions of the show.

It seems extremely likely (although, as you know, not officially confirmed yet) that the show will return to Europe next year for a final bit of bricklaying, and as and when dates are finally announced, we will have all the information here for you. In the meantime, there's also the planned DVD/Blu-ray of The Wall, taken from recent concerts, which hopefully will also be announced soon...
