Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters takes us through each track on his last solo album, the fourteen-track concept collection 'Amused to Death', which he released in 1992 through Columbia Records, hitting UK charts at number 8.
Real music fans, prepare to rejoice as Pink Floyd become bigger than One Direction. Sort of.
It's frustrating for any musical connoisseur that carefully manipulated pop reigns highest on most music charts, but it looks like psychedelic legends Pink Floyd could beat One Direction on Amazon's most pre-ordered albums list with their final release 'The Endless River'.
The band, whose last album ten years ago entitled 'The Division Bell' became a worldwide number one, managed to easily overtake Coldplay's 'Ghost Stories' as most pre-ordered album of 2014 and now their new record may be held up as the most pre-ordered of all time - a title currently held by One Direction's 'Midnight Memories'.

The legendary band’s first new album in 20 years is released on November 10th.
It’s not the first time the band have used the physicist's synthesised voice. Hawking can be heard narrating, ‘Keep Talkin’’ a track from The Division Bell which sampled a British Telecom advert featuring the professor. ‘Talkin' Hawkin’ is not thought to be a sequel to the 1994 track.

Roger Waters is open about the fact that his new movie is less of a concert documentary, and more of an anti-war film.
Pink Floyd's Roger Waters says his new movie Roger Waters: The Wall should be viewed as a protest against the growing spread of armed conflict, rather than a concert documentary. The movie - which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday (September 6, 2014) - documents Waters' three yearlong The Wall Live tour.

However, it also includes sections of Waters visiting war cemeteries, including the grave of his father, who died in World War I. The concert itself features projections of veterans and people who died in wars.

Pink Floyd fans have been promised a new album.
Fans of the psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd are in for a promising fall. Apparently the iconic rockers have a new album on the way title The Endless River. Most interesting though, is how the news was announced.

David Gilmour's wife Polly Samson leaked the news via Twitter. She stated: "Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called "The Endless River". Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful." Presumably, by "based" she meant that recordings from the late keyboardist Rick Wright (who died of cancer in 2008 at age 65) were beefed up with overdubs by Gilmour and Nick Mason. Samson co-wrote many of the lyrics featured on the band's 1994 album The Division Bell, so it's very possible she contributed to the soon-to-be released album.

The musician expressed his dislike for Johansson’s behavior on Facebook
An open letter seems to be the go-to thing to do when a celebrity misbehaves, and that’s what Roger Waters has employed to take Scarlett Johansson to task for going into cohorts with Sodastream, the controversial ‘let’s-make-that-drink-fizzy’ company operating out of Isreal’s West Bank.
Scarlett Johansson has ceased her work with Oxfam over the Sodastream debacle
Waters penned the open letter in response to Johansson’s defence of Sodastream, saying the company is keen on mending relationships. “SodaStream is a company that is not only committed to the environment but to building a bridge to peace between Israel and Palestine, supporting neighbors working alongside each other, receiving equal pay, equal benefits and equal rights,” she said.
