Robert Waters of Pink Floyd turns 70 today.  He and Floyd split over artistic butthurt back in 19-nobody-cares.

His greatest musical achievement came when he gave millions of high school dropouts an anthem to rally behind on their way to buying meth ingredients and/or heroin.  You may know the song as "Stairway to Heaven".

Here's some back-in-the-Pink-Floyd days footage of Waters playing the band's best known hit.

Happy birthday, Robert!
