Roger Waters at IAVA GalaLast night, at IAVA's Sixth Annual Heroes Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City, Roger Waters was on hand to help the evening go well.

As well as performing Flickering Flame with Jon Carin on keyboards and GE Smith on guitar, Roger was honoured as recipient of the IAVA 2012 Artistic Leadership Award.

On their website, IAVA notes: "Roger Waters’ achievements as a songwriter and live performer have spanned over four decades and have established him as a major force and influence in the progress and development of popular music. He was a founding member of the multi-platinum rock band Pink Floyd, serving as bassist and co-lead vocalist. Mr. Waters’ “Fallen Loved Ones” project was an integral part of his recently completed record-breaking “The Wall” tour, making him an important advocate and valued friend to the veterans community."
