Roger Waters Gives Details About His Shoulder Surgery And Recovery Process


During an interview with All Excess, Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters revealed the details about his shoulder surgery and updated the fans on his recovery process.

Roger Waters has been in the music industry for over fifty years, entertaining people with his music and stage shows. However, he is not only known for his musical appearance. For instance, the 78-year-old singer is also an activist and has organized lots of charity events for Palestine and many others.

In the interview he gave in June, Waters stated that he had been suffering from a big bone spur, mildly torn rotator cuff, and tendonitis from his right shoulder. The musician then revealed that he had surgery just a couple of weeks before this conversation.

Furthermore, Waters mentioned that he started physiotherapy sessions to overcome the side effects of the surgery. The Pink Floyd co-founder then added he has to spend a lot of time in the gym and do exercises to fully recover.

He is expected to return to the stage in the Summer of 2022 with the ‘This Is Not A Drill’ tour. This means that his recovery process might take longer than everybody has expected. However, the musician might add new dates to the tour if he recovers by that time.

Talking about his shoulder surgery, Roger Waters said in the interview that:

I had shoulder surgery two and a half weeks ago. I had a big bone spur and a sort of mildly torn rotator cuff and a lot of tendonitides in there. So I had it all gone into. Now, I have my first appointment with sort of remedial physiotherapy tomorrow at lunchtime for an assessment.

What it means, unfortunately, is I’m going to have to spend quite a lot of time in a gym or whatever for working my way slowly back to being able to throw a distant right hook.”
