WATERS, ROGER, GEORGE.



NEWS:
07-07-12 (Shine on Syd Barrett!):
Roger Waters will start work on his next studio album of original music after his 2012 leg of The Wall Live tour completes on 21st July at a spectacular outdoor concert at Les Plaines D'Abraham in Quebec, Canada.
Roger is also working on the financials for putting an outdoor stadium tour of The Wall together for Europe in the summer of 2013 in Europe.
In an interview in the New York Times today, when asked has he been writing any new songs, Roger Waters responded, "I have. I have written so much, and its been 20 years since I made a record. I came up with a song a few weeks ago on the road and then I started playing it a bit with the band in rehearsals. I think it may be the central part and also the kicking-off point for another album."
When asked will he start work on the album when The Wall tour closes on 21st July, Roger said, "Yes. If I dont work on it later this year, it might disappear, and I might never do anything again. So I think I have to and Im very enthusiastic about it. And it encompasses a lot of the other songs Ive written over the years. There are tons of them. I just never found a big enough hook to hang them around."

Roger Waters to Release a Wall Tour DVD, Plans New Solo Album!
Roger Waters participated in an almost four-hour interview recently on Sirius/XM's Deep Tracks channel and spoke about future release plans.
First up is a DVD of The Wall tour on which he has concentrated for the last couple of years.

Weve been filming almost everything as we go along, remorselessly. We filmed for a week when we did shows in Athens and we were filming all over South America, so yeah, there will definitely be a DVD of this whole experience coming up in the near future. Sometime after that, look for a new solo album from Waters. Even though he said that The Wall tour would be a wrap up to his career, it's looking much more certain that this would be the end of his live career with recording still very much in his plans.
Ive got a strong feeling that I have a new album literally about to pop out. Ive written a song while I was on the road, which I think will provide me with the impetus, emotionally and philosophically and politically to create a new album. If the album is released, it will be his first full album of new material since 1990's Amused to Death.

13-05-2011:
David Gilmour and Nick Mason join Waters onstage!
The surviving members of Pink Floyd reunited onstage tonight at London's 02 Arena during a stop on Roger Waters' Wall tour - marking only the second time that Nick Mason, David Gilmour and Roger Waters had played together in the last 30 years. Waters and Gilmour performed "Comfortably Numb" as the crowd at the arena went absolutely insane, and during the finale of "Outside the Wall," Gilmour returned to the stage alongside Mason, who played a tambourine.

As he did on the original 1980/81 tour, Gilmour played his epic solo on the top of the Wall. Last July, Waters promised that Gilmour would play the song during one show on the tour, but drummer Nick Mason's involvement was kept a secret. They last performed together at Live 8 in 2005. Original keyboardist Richard Wright died in 2008.

YouTube: Comfortably Numb

YouTube: Encore with Nick & David.

01-01-21011:
According to Roger Waters website all 6 shows at London's O2 arena will be filmed and recorded. Hence there will probably be a DVD and a CD of The Wall Live tour in 2011. This could mean that David Gilmour will be playing at one of the London O2 concerts. A very nice treat indeed!

According to a note on Roger's website, "Roger Waters will be filming and recording all 6 shows at The O2 Arena in London in May. For these shows, photographs are permitted but we must insist on NO Flash photography. Flash wipes out the images projected on the Wall, which are the most important part of the show. Any person who uses Flash will have their camera confiscated and could be removed from the Arena."

11TH JULY 2010:
Roger Waters and David Gilmour perform charity show together last night
It seems London was the place to be last night: in a bolt out of the blue, David Gilmour and Roger Waters performed together for the Hoping Foundation Benefit Evening, playing Wish You Were Here! Guy Pratt performed bass duties, whilst Roger was on acoustic guitar. For those of you surprised by Guy's inclusion, some of you will recall from our Guy Pratt interview back in 2005, Guy was asked to play bass for Pink Floyd at Live8 when the reunion happened...
News of the show, and the appearance by David and Roger, was broken by one of the hosts of the evening, TV presenter Fearne Cotton, who tweeted about the event in the early hours of this morning. There's a number of pictures from the performance, and the evening itself, over at Getty Images, and if you click the thumbnail to the right, you'll go directly to them.

Interview with Roger Waters about everything you want to know:



PINK FLOYD PLAYED AT LIVE 8 SHOW

Pink Floyd, including Nick, Rick, David and Roger have played a wonderful set at Live8 July 2 2005.

roger

Quote Roger:
"It's actually quite emotional standing up here with these 3 guys after all these years. Standing to be counted with th rest of you. Anyway, we're doing this for anyone who's not here. Particularly Syd."

More Pictures and News at the Pink Floyd, Nick Mason and David Gilmour page.

Roger Waters was interviewed by Sal Cirrincione, of Premiere Radio Networks in the US, about the reunion with Pink Floyd, at the London Live 8 concert on July 2nd.

The interview, aired today, was broadcast on hundreds of North American radio stations. In the interview, Roger said:

"I enjoyed the soundcheck [on Friday] and I enjoyed the gig. It was a long day waiting, you know, a lot of adrenaline flowing about. When I'm doing my own tours, you know, I'm sort of more in control of everything, and I tend not to get nervous, just a slight flutter maybe before going on.

"But that was quite nerve-racking waiting for hour after hour after hour to go on and do it, and wondering what it would be like. But I really enjoyed it, and I felt a lot of warmth off the audience and it was cool to be up there with the rest of the guys and doing that thing for a good cause. It was cool."


Another Show a second Pink Floyd reunion is at hand as the band has been inducted at the 2005 UK Music Hall Of Fame. See the . news page for more info
David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright are to re-unite for the second time in 24 years, to attend the 2005 UK Music Hall Of Fame ceremony. We can reveal that Channel 4 TV and Initial will tomorrow announce that Pink Floyd are amongst the inductees to the Hall Of Fame.

The four of them will attend the ceremony, to be held in November. It will be only the second time in almost a quarter of a century that the whole group has appeared on stage together.

Roger 99 He was born in Great Bookham, Surrey, England on 6 September, 1943 and moved to Cambridge as a two years old.

While studying architecture at the Regent Street Polytechnic School of Architecture, he met Nicky Mason and Richard Wright. This meeting led eventually to the formation of the Pink Floyd.

Waters was the most successful songwriter of this (so far faceless) band ( "...and by the way, which one is Pink?.. ") But when he left at 1985 the other three Pinks found out that a band needs more than only good songwriting skills to stay in the spotlight.

Roger Water's traumatic life makes absorbing stuff to write about. His father, Eric Fletcher was killed in 1944 in the battle of Anzio (Italy) during WW II. So his mother had to raise him up on her own. These experiences probably caused the basic conception of "The Wall". Later on he went on a holiday to Germany. This trip brought about the creation of " The Pros & Cons of Hitch-hiking".

Waters performed in numerous bands, e.g.

The Tailboard Two ('62) - on guitar;

Sigma 6 ('63);

The Abdabs ('64) - still on guitar;

Spectrum Five -on bass and guitar and vocals;

Leonard Lodgers -on bass,

The Pink Floyd Blues Band ('65);

The Tea Set ('65);

The Pink Floyd Sound;

Pink Floyd ('65 - '85);

The album was printed in vinyl aswel on cd, Roger prefers the vinyl for better sounding.

Towards the end of '98 he started to write a musical, called "Ca Ira".

 

And " surprise, surprise" he sets out on another American tour with;

Andy Fairweather Low -on guitar and bass,

Snowy White - guitar (!),

Graham Board -on drums,

Jon Carin - keyboards, guitar and vocals

Andy Wallace - hammond and keyboards,

P P Arnold - vocals.

Norbet Stachel - soprano and tenor saxophone.

He wrote a new song called: Each small Candle. There's a story about it.

Lost Boy Calling is a song he wrote for the soundtrack The Legend of 1900 (1999). With;

Ennio Morricone,

Patrick Leonard,

and guitarist Eddie Van Halen.

 

In the Flesh (November 2000) is a double-live recording with solo-work, old Pink Floyd stuff and even a new song called; Each small Candle. Comfortably Numb of the ITOT was my favorite but this one is can tip on that. Doyle Bramall II and Snowy White have an enjoyable battle at the end. Songs from The Wall, Dark Side (Roger singing Time), Amused to Death and more.

James Guthrie did produced the cd, the sound-quality isn't so as we are used of the perfectionist Mr. Waters. But who cares it's live and the music is great and it seems that they had fun.

A more priced DVD disc will appeal to the fans to empty their purse again. But who cares?

 

An European tour will start in 2002, see this link for tour dates and places.
The rumor goes that his axe-man Doyle will not join this tour. :-(

The European Tour 2002.
A very overwhelming set, al through the last song, "Flickering Flame" wasn't the best choice to end this great concert. Mark Fisher and Jonathan Park did again the stage design; simple but very overwelming. Great slide show, the ode to Syd was very properly done.

Well, not only did Nick Mason participate in the sound check for Roger Water's gigs at the Wembley Arena on June 26th and 27th, but he also climbed behind the drumkit for Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun during the shows themselves. Thus was half of the classic Pink Floyd line-up briefly reunited.

 

Flickering Flame (Part 1) is a collection of his solo-work, with for example; Knockin'on Heavens Door (which he first played after the assassination on John Lennon 08 December '80, but this version is from a Israeli movie 'The Dybbuk of the Holy Apple Field' in 1998), Lost Boy Calling (demo), a Dylanesque ballad Flickering Flame )he played live on his tour) and other, regular, songs. Released during the European Tour 2002.

The Royal Festival Hall website announces that Roger Waters will be guesting for Jeff Beck on two concerts in the Hall, which is situated in London, England, on September 12th and 13th 2002. No further details have been made available other than that Andy Fairweather-Low and PP Arnold will also be appearing.

Roger Waters has been added to the line-up for the Music To My Ears concerts in Boston and New York City, which will benefit the family of Timothy White, the late editor in chief of Billboard magazine. Waters is set to perform at Boston's FleetCenter on October 7th and at Madison Square Garden in New York on October 8th. Other luminaries appearing at the concerts include Billy Joel, Sheryl Crow, Don Henley, John Mellencamp, Sting, and James Taylor.

On October 16, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will give the premier performance of the Overture from Roger Waters' opera, Ca Ira. In addition, Roger will play 2 songs with his band and the RPO. The concert is given in aid of The Countryside Alliance. This organization wants to preserve hunting with dogs as a part of the English culture, no less.

new Check out Roger Waters.com - there are two brand new songs available to download. Both are a response to events in the Middle East. According to Waters, he began work on his new songs "immediately after the invasion of Iraq...It seems apposite to throw them out there on the Net, before the [USA] election. Historically, there have always been people within the artistic community who have spoken out about things they believe in and they should continue to do so. I shall certainly continue to do so, whether it has any effect or not, because I feel I have a responsibility to myself to do that."

Roger Waters - Ca Ira
Image source Roger Waters

ROGER WATERS: has now completed work on his "operatic history of the French Revolution" a Ira, set for release on Tuesday 27th September 2005.
The lavish first edition of "a Ira," an opera in three acts for full orchestra, soloists and choirs, will include a double SACD DigiPack and a deluxe 60 page four-color booklet including Roger Waters' lyrics based on Etienne Roda-Gil's original French libretto, the original illustrations created by Nadine Roda-Gil, biographies of Waters and the opera's cast, background and production notes on the opera.

roger As a bonus for Roger Waters fans, "a Ira" includes a special DVD documentary chronicling the "making of" the opera. The "a Ira" DVD traces the history of the project, from conception to completion, and includes revelatory interviews with Waters and the musicians and cast of "a Ira" as well as exclusive in-the-studio footage of the recording of the opera.

"a Ira" is being released in the hybrid SACD (Super Audio CD) format in Dolby Digital 5.1 SurroundSound. The hybrid SACD disks are compatible with standard CD players."

Waters' work on "a Ira," his first opera for full orchestra and voice, began in 1989, during the Bicentennial of the French Revolution. The well-respected and successful songwriter Etienne Roda-Gil and his wife, Nadine, had created an original libretto for an opera, written in French, as part of the Bicentennial. Entitled "a Ira," after a revolutionary song of the period, the Roda-Gil's original manuscript, copiously and beautifully illustrated by Nadine, portrayed the events and the spirit of the French Revolution through a multitude of perspectives--ranging from Marie Antoinette to the eyes and ears of the period's revolutionaries and common people--using a circus as a central theatrical framing device and metaphor.

roger & ying huang Introduced to Etienne Roda-Gil by a mutual friend, Waters was immediately and deeply impressed by the passion and the power of Etienne's manuscript and began work on creating a full orchestral score for "a Ira." Work on the project was suspended when Nadine died tragically of leukemia. Several years passed before Roger and Etienne returned to "a Ira."

In 1997, Roger began writing an English version of the text. "It's not just a translation," he says. "I've stuck very much to the spirit of Etienne's original, adding to it somewhat. Although it's rooted in the history of the revolution, its philosophical slant is, I suppose, contemporary as well. It's more than just a history of the French Revolution, it's a piece about the human potential for change."

Roger: " If the intellectuals of the modern
opera world are catty about it, so be it."
The finished version of "a Ira" features orchestration and choral arrangements by Rick Wentworth and Roger Waters, also the album's producers. Principal characters in the opera are brought to life by the Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel (the Ringmaster, the Troublemaker, Louis Capet - the King of France); internationally acclaimed soprano Ying Huang (Marie Marianne - the Voice of Liberty, Reason and the Republic, Marie Antoinette - the Queen of France); American tenor Paul Groves (A Revolutionary Priest, A Military Officer); and Nigerian "one man orchestra" Ismael Lo (a Revolutionary Slave). Other parts are sung by Jamie Bower (Honest Bird - the young Revolutionary Priest) and Helen Russill (Madame Antoine - the young Marie Antoinette).

Before the rise and fall of the guillotine, before the terror took hold, the People of France fought for a better world based on the ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity rather than one ruled by a callous and outmoded nobility. It is this story of hope and promise that inspired "a Ira." Set during the optimistic early days of the French Revolution, "a Ira is a work of stunning power and beauty, invoking the passion, madness, and triumph of faith in a time that forever changed the nature of the world."
artwork Rumours are still floating around that Roger will be performing a Ira later this year in Rome.

The wait will soon be over, as Roger Water's long-awaited opera a Ira will be released by Sony Music on September 27th.
The album will be available in three formats: a lavish digipack with two Super Audio CDs, an English version and a French version.

 

Comment of Nick:
It's not my cup of tea... The DVD is interesting and the music has some highlights too. The artwork is beautiful done by Nadine Roda-Gil, sadly she died of leukaemia. Wish it was more instrumental, don't like the dramatic voices. Don't like opera in general. Maybe if I've reached the age of Roger it would become more enjoyable.
Besides that my pc didn't liked the dvd and audio cd's...think that because it is scad release.
A few names who worked on a Ira:

Gavyn Wright - orchestral leader.

Jamie Bower, Helen Russill, Bryn Terfelo, Ying Huang, Paul Groves & Ismael Lo are the solist.

Rick Wentworth - conductor.

Cult movie with Roger Waters penned theme gets US DVD release ('09).
One of the latest releases from the Criterion DVD company in the US is the 1984 UK cult movie, The Hit. Legendary British actor Terence Stamp is Willie, a gangster's henchman turned "supergrass" (informer) trying to live in peaceful hiding in a remote Spanish village. Sun-dappled bliss turns to nerve-racking suspense, however, when two hit men - played by a soulless John Hurt and a youthful, loose-cannon Tim Roth come to bring Willie back for execution.

With an instrumental theme co-written by Roger Waters and Eric Clapton, and a score by Clapton, it has long be sought out by Waters fans. Well, search no more, as the (region 1, NTSC format) DVD hits stores in North America yesterday (April 28th), complete with a new, restored high-definition digital transfer, commentary, interview and booklet.

 

SESSION / LIVE GIGS:

Marianne Faithfull; Vagabond Ways album, released: June 8, 1999. The song 'Incarceration of a Flower Child' is an old Pink Floyd song demode in 1968, but never recorded by Pink Floyd. The song is written by Roger Waters. Waters also plays the bass on the song. Faithfull co-performed in the Berlin show of The Wall and she has also been singing a duet with Ismael Lo written by Roger Waters. Here you'll find the words of this song and the lines of Each Small Candle.

Ringo Starr, Roger did session for a new song from Ringo Starr, co-written by Eric Clapton, about the death of George Harisson (expected release 2003).

11th of May 2007
The tribute show for Roger "Syd" Barrett, Madcap's Last Laugh was held at the Barbican Hall in the heart of the city of London (11th of May), it featured an array of Syd's fans and colleagues, performing a healthy chunk of his back catalogue. Amongst these, were Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright, between them performing three songs in honour of their old bandmate. Profits from the concert were donated to the mental health charity SANE, nominated by the Barrett family (who were represented at the gig.

syd One of the first big surprises of the evening, was the introduction of Roger Waters. Coming on stage with Jon Carin he explained why he chose his own song, "Flickering Flame": "I was thinking about this, and [this song] seemed apposite, so we'll try and struggle through it."
And so on stage, billed not as Pink Floyd, but Rick Wright, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, came the second shock of the night. With them all looking pleased to be able to offer their tribute to Syd, David commented that Syd "really was everything they say he was, our Syd." On hearing calls for "Roger Waters!" David replied: "Yes, he was here too... now the rest of us!"
They played "Arnold Layne" and with everyone joing on stage except Roger "Bike" was performed.

Nick Laird-Clowes and Joe Boyd organized this event (with others).

Judy was his first wife and her picture is on the inside cover of Ummagumma ('69). They were divorced in '75.

Carolyne Christie was his second wife, whom he married in '76 and divorced in '92. They have two children. Carolyne was a niece of the Marquis of Zetland. Previously she was working for Bob Ezrin who introduced them to each other.
