Roger Waters:Would he have been easy to beat up?

Post by bmet »

It's Saturday afternoon and I want a fun question to ask other members!

I've seen pictures of a young Roger in Nick's book:(Scrawny,gangly,pimples,etc).
I've read of the written remarks of how he tended to bring an opponent down verbally with his quick mind and tongue and that he doesn't suffer fools easily.
I look at those old pictures and often wonder if a "good swift kick to the arse" would have been an eye opener to him at the time.(Perhaps not having a dad plus a determined mother influeanced his behaviour).

So my question(s) is: Would Roger have been easy to beat-up? Or was a scrapper and quite prepared to defend himself?

He might have been gangly but he looks like the type of bloke you would have knock out to stop.

I reckon I could take him though!! :evil:

In 1967, he looked like he could get his assed kicked all over the place.

Fast-forward to 1977...hmm, dont think so :lol:

I dunno, he'd probably have been one of those people it would have been very difficult to actually be bothered trying to beat up. Usually if someone is pissing me off, I ignore it, and if they are wittier and better able to put me down verbally, then in all likelyhood attacking them would probably only assert their superiority mentally speaking.

I was more or less thinking of the younger Roger in the 50's and early 60's.

Most of us here are adults!
Mind You,If there's anyone out there thinking of beating up Roger today,please wait 'til after Sept 20th!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think I recall reading in an interview somewhere that he used to get beaten up quite a bit whilst he was in the Sea Scouts in his youth, so yes, you probably could take him. :lol:

Being tall, he could possibly have used this theory:

It is better to win a fight by 100 metres.
