George Roger Waters is 74 years old today.

Roger Waters was the Bass player, composer, vocalist, and front man of the
English rock band Pink Floyd, the group known for songs like "Shine On
You Crazy Diamond." He was the chairman of the Cambridge Youth
Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament at age fifteen. Waters helped
compose the soundtrack to the 1970 documentary The Body.

Waters left Pink Floyd in 1985 and began a legal dispute with the remaining
members over their use of the band’s name and material. They settled out
of court in 1987, and nearly eighteen years passed before he performed
with them again. As a member of Pink Floyd, Waters was inducted into
the U.S. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 and the UK Music Hall of
Fame
in 2005
