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.
