Richard Wright RIP

Very sad to hear about Richard Wright.

Richard Wright, one of the founding members of Pink Floyd, has died today following a struggle with cancer. He was 65.

Wright was the band’s long-term keyboard player, as well as a songwriting contributor to classic albums such as Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. He also mastered a wide range of instruments including the synthesiser and Farfisa organ, during the many years of Pink Floyd’s career.

There goes my hippy teenage years. I would not even be able to estimate the amount of times I’ve heard the man’s work. His ironic legacy is probably The Great Gig In The Sky.

Alexi Murdoch—Orange Sky (Live)

I’m heading to Worldcon in Denver on Tuesday, so this might be the last posting for a week or so. Here’s little laid-back flying-into-the-sun kind of music.
