I just saw a yes vote for Roger Waters, which made me realize that I didn't know he had a page here. It also says he has been eligible since 1995. I didn't realize he relesed a solo album in 1970.

i don't think so. He's already in for pink floyd, but that didn't stop other solo acts from getting in twice. however, i don't think he has been able to do it again.

I have to say no. He's in with the greatest prog bandof all-time(and the only one in the hall). I don't think anyone was influenced by his solo work.

Roger Waters' solo career, apart from anything he ever did with Pink Floyd, deserves nomination and induction into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. His work with Inductee Eric Clapton on The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking and Inductee Jeff Beck on Amused to Death place him firmly in their class. The Wall Live in Berlin remains the largest live spectacle ever produced in history, his upcoming tour will be a smashing success as was his recent incarnation of The Dark Side of the Moon. Radio KAOS was thirty years ahead of his time when it came out. This is one of the most seminal "contributors to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll" in all of rock history. No individual rock artist has painted the landscape that is the soundtrack of my life more than Roger Waters. The next time I visit Cleveland, I want to see more than the incredible display already there on The Wall. I want to see Roger Waters' new inductee exhibit as a solo artist, and rightfully so.

Kevin, you bring up some good points but I think the work Roger Waters will ultimately be remembered for is for his contribution with Pink Floyd (which the Hall has already recognized).

His solo performances of The Wall, each far superior in their own way than the earlier 1980's version with the Floyd, have been seen live by over 1 million humans. Now how many others can make that claim? The man deserves to be IN for that, and all of the other reasons noted above!
