By the end of 1981 he was diagnosed with lung cancer and a long period of illness followed. In 1983 Waters passed away of a heart attack. Five years after he was posthumously inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Amongst his admirers are Buddy Guy, The Rolling Stones, Rory Gallagher, John Mayall and Steve Winwood.
