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.
May 8th,1984, Roger Waters released his first solo album The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking. The concept album, as originally envisioned by Waters in 1977, rotated around a man's thoughts during a midlife crisis, and featured guest musicians Eric Clapton on guitar, David Sanborn on saxophone and Michael Kamen on piano.
