2 April 1983: Progressive Rock band, Pink Floyd scored their third #1 album with “The Final Cut”. This concept album was the last of the band’s releases to include founding member and lyricist Roger Waters. It was originally planned as a soundtrack album for the band’s 1982 film Pink Floyd – The Wall. The direction of the album shifted with the onset of the Falklands war as a gloomy critique of the conflict as well as the perceived betrayal of his father.
