Pink Floyd left an incredible footprint on the musical community. And at its core was George Roger Waters, who in 1968 became the primary songwriter and conceptual leader of the group. As a result of the songwriter's work, which includes the albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall, Pink Floyd became a worldwide phenomenon.

Waters infamously split from the group in 1985, but continued to record solo records and perform Pink Floyd songs in concert. In 1996, he was enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2005, he reunited with his former bandmates for one Pink Floyd show at the benefit concert series Live 8.

Hear Waters discuss his latest project, The Wall Live, with WXPN's Michaela Majoun.

This World Cafe segment originally aired March 25.
