Former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters paid tribute to wounded warriors recently by enlisting their help for a benefit concert. Waters was flanked by 14 soldiers on stage at the recent Stand Up for Heroes event at New York's Beacon Theater, according to The Associated Press.
Waters and the musically-inclined soldiers met at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, D.C., and have spent much of the last few days rehearsing for the concert, which benefited returning veterans and their families. Waters, who is from England, said there are few duties more important than supporting the troops.
"I never talk about the politics because it's not relevant to me. I'm not interested in it," he told the AP. "What I am interested in is the burdens these guys bear and would never question motives or even dream of talking about any of the politics."
Waters is just one of many famous musicians who have made paying tribute to the Armed Forces a priority. In fact, actor Gary Sinise formed the Lieutenant Dan Band specifically to play for troops at military bases at home and abroad.
