He wrote The Wall, he wrote Animals, and he wrote pretty much all of Dark Side of the Moon; still, somehow, when Roger Waters split ways with guitarist David Gilmour and the rest of the band, it was the guitarist who got to keep the name Pink Floyd.

And to add insult to injury, when the new Pink Floyd put out new records, it was they who outsold their songwriter.

Tonight Waters returns to Los Angeles to play the Hollywood Bowl in what should be a very special treat - the entire Dark Side of the Moon will be performed followed by some of Pink Floyd's greatest hits.

Here are the last three tunes of Dark Side ("Any Color You Like", "Brain Damage" and "Eclipse") from a concert performed by Waters two weeks ago.

Dark Side of the Moon was released in 1973 and spent 741 consecutive weeks on the Billboard 200, proving that people will buy creative, trippy, freaky music and it doesn't have to be performed by pretty boys or teen tarts.
