Roger Waters quotes thumbnail

Roger Waters is an English musician, songwriter and composer. He was born in 1943 in Great Bookham, Surrey. At the age of 18 he became a founding member of Pink Floyd, staying with them until 1985 when he left due to his differences with bandmate David Gilmour. No other members were present during this time so Roger created a solo project called The Wall. It’s about a man who builds himself up to be completely isolated from society; but eventually comes down from his wall because he realizes that it is not possible for him to live alone and without love. This album has been ranked as one of the best albums ever made by Rolling Stone magazine and many others.
