Shine On You Crazy Diamond is a song by Pink Floyd, written by David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Richard Wright in 1974. The song is a poignant tribute to former band member Syd Barrett, who had left the group in 1968. The song was performed for the first time during the French tour, 1974, and the following year was included in the concept album Wish You Were Here 1975.
Roger Waters - I'm willing to post him in my guitar players group because he does play some guitar and wrote most of the amazing lyrics for the Pink Floyd albums I love. Also, he has been mending walls with David Gilmour after the fiery official leaving of the band in 1985. His retooling of The Wall tour in 2010 was the best concert I've ever attended.
