Roger Waters Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

George Roger Waters was born on 6 September 1943, in Great Bookham, Surrey England. He is a popular musician, composer and songwriter. Roger is rightly famous for being one of the founding members of the group called “Pink Floyd”, as well as for his solo career. During his career, Roger with Pink Floyd has been nominated for and has won different awards, including Grammy Award, Radio Music Award, MTV Video Music Award and others. ”Pink Floyd” were even included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Although he is now over 70 years old, he still continues his career as a musician, and surprises his fans by creating new songs.

So how rich is Roger Waters? It is estimated by authorititive sources that Roger’s net worth is $270 million, having gained this huge sum of money through his long career of almost 50 years as a musician. Performing with the “Pink Floyd” and releasing his solo albums are the main sources of Roger Waters’ net worth. There is no doubt that as long as Roger will create music, he will have fans all over the world. That is why there is a high chance that Roger’s net worth will become higher. Let’s hope that we will be able to listen to his music for a long time.

When Roger was young, he did not think about a musician’s career. He participated in various sports and even wanted to become an engineer. Despite his attempts to study, soon he lost interest and, in 1965 he and his friends Syd Barrett, Richard Wright and Nick Mason, created the band which became known as “Pink Floyd”, and is recognized as one of the most innovative and influential bands of the rock era. Roger not only played the guitar in this band, but also wrote almost every song in their first studio album, which was called “The Piper at the Gates of Dawn”, and was released in 1967. This album made Roger’s net worth grow. Later “Pink Floyd” released many albums, the most significant of which were “The Dark Side of the Moon”, “Wish You Were Here”, “Animals”, “The Wall” and “The Final Cut”, which brought them worldwide success and considerable wealth. Although “Pink Floyd” ostensibly took a break from 1994, they reunited in 2012. In 2014 they released their so far last album, called “The Endless River”. Maybe they will reunite again in the near future and release more albums.

As mentioned, Roger Waters is also known for his solo career. In 1984 he released his first solo album called “The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking”. This album had a considerable impact on the growth of Roger’s net worth. Later he released two more albums: “Amused to Death” and “Radio K.A.O.S”. As Roger still performs, there is a high chance that he will release more solo albums. Undoubtedly, his fans are waiting for his new projects and will, of course, support him as long as they can.

If to talk about Roger Waters’ personal life, it can be said that in 1969 Water married Judy Trim, but they divorced in 1975. One year later, Roger married Lady Carolyne Christie, with whom he has two children. Unfortunately, this marriage also ended in divorce. In 2012 Roger married Laurie Durning and maybe this marriage will last longer. Finally, Roger Waters is one of the most experienced and popular musicians of all time. It is really great that he is still able to continue his career and enjoy what he is doing. He will probably do this as long as he can and his fans will always admire him.

12 Is a huge fan of John Lennon, and cites "Isolation" as one of his favorite songs of all time. He played on a Lennon tribute show in 1985 performing "Across the Universe" with bassist Andy Fairweather Low.
13 Attended the Regent Street Polytechnic School of Architecture, where he met fellow band mates Richard Wright, and Nick Mason.
14 Pink Floyd's 1973 album, "Dark Side of the Moon", topped Classic Rock Magazine's list of the 30 greatest concept albums of all time. Their 1979 album, "The Wall", came tenth and their 1983 album, "The Final Cut", came 21st on the list. [March 2003]

16 Pink Floyd's album, "The Wall", is featured on the sleeve of Marillion's album, "Fugazi" (released in 1984).
17 Pink Floyd's album, "A Saucerful of Secrets", is featured on the sleeve of rock band Marillion's album, "Script for a Jester's Tear" (released in 1983).
18 Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of Pink Floyd) in 1996.
19 Has been married three times, first to Judy Trim from 1969-1975 (she appears in a photo in some versions of the Pink Floyd album Ummagumma, credited as "Jude"), then to Carolyne Christie from 1976-1992, with whom he has two children, son Harry and daughter India, and finally to Priscilla Phillips from 1992-2001, with whom he has one child. His daughter India is a model, and son Harry tours with his dad as a keyboard player.
20 Father Eric Fletcher Waters was killed in World War II in 1944 in Anzio, Italy. His death proved to be a huge inspiration on Pink Floyd's music, particularly on the albums "The Wall" (1979) and "The Final Cut" (1983).
21 After leaving Pink Floyd, he sued, unsuccessfully, to prevent the remaining members from using the name.

1 I have been accused of being a Nazi and an anti-Semite for the past 10 years. My industry has been particularly recalcitrant in even raising a voice against Israel. There's me and Elvis Costello, Brian Eno, Manic Street Preachers, one or two others, but there's nobody in the US where I live. I've talked to a lot of them, and they are scared shitless.
2 The situation in Israel/Palestine, with the occupation, the ethnic cleansing and the systematic racist apartheid Israeli regime is unacceptable.
3 [in 1990] I find the ubiquitous nature of Phil Collins's presence in my life irritating.
4 [on the Falklands War in 1982, the inspiration for Pink Floyd's album "The Final Cut"] My view is certainly that it saved Margaret Thatcher's political career at the time at the cost of a great many Argentine and British lives which disgusted me then and still does now. But I was never a huge fan of Margaret Thatcher and her policies.
5 The loss of a father is the central prop upon which (The Wall) stands. As the years go by, children lose their fathers again and again, for nothing. You see it now with all of these fathers, good men and true, who lost their lives and limbs in Iraq for no reason at all. I've done Bring the Boys Back Home in my encores on recent tours. It feels more relevant and poignant to be singing that song now than it did in 1979.
6 When I first got a guitar, it was a Spanish, classical thing. I took a few lessons from a woman in Cambridge who used to keep her guitar in her bed, as if it was a sexual thing.
7 You take the risk of being rejected. If you have pretentions to be an artist of any kind, you have to take the risk of people rejecting you and thinking you're an arsehole.
8 [talking about his former band members in Pink Floyd in 2002, and why he had left Pink Floyd in 1985] "I knew that we were over with, as far as the traditional 'band of brothers' notion of a rock group goes. I mean, we just weren't like that any more and we were never going to be like that again ..."
9 I think there are things in my story that have helped my creativity. Your father being killed, for instance, is one of the best things that could happen to a kid if he's going to write poetry or songs.
