Roger Waters began his career during the 60s. He, along with Rick Wright, Syd Barrett and Nick Mason founded Pink Floyd, a band which shook up the entire landscape of progressive music. Once Barrett departed the band, Waters assumed leadership of the band and was the driving force behind their success.

These include “Wish You Were Here”, “Comfortably Numb”, “Another Brick in the Wall” and “Money”. These songs are considered staples of progressive rock and are still as popular today as they were forty years ago.
