Roger Waters to Be Made an Honorary Citizen of Italian City Where His Father Was Killed

Roger Waters to Be Made an Honorary Citizen of Italian City Where His Father Was Killed | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

PINK FLOYD star ROGER WATERS is to be made an honorary citizen of the Italian city where his father died in action during World War II.

The rocker spent years attempting to track down the exact place where his dad, Lieutenant Eric Waters, was killed in 1944 during Italy's battle of Anzio, and he was helped to discover the location by another war veteran last year (13).

Waters, who was just five months old when he lost his father, is now set to be honoured by local officials in Anzio as part of the 70th anniversary commemorations.

He will be made an honorary citizen of the city during a ceremony on 18 February (14), exactly 70 years since the day his father died, while a monument to Eric Waters will be erected there. The tribute will be inscribed with lyrics from Pink Floyd's song Two Suns In The Sunset.
