Pink Floyd's Richard Wright - 1945-2008 E-mail
Wednesday, 17 September 2008

Richard Wright - 1945-2008Pink Floyd founding member and keyboardist, Richard Wright, passed away on Monday.  While perhaps not the most visible member of Pink Floyd, Rick created the sound-scapes that became the signature Pink Floyd "sound" that we all know and love.  His most well-known compositions - Great Gig In The Sky and Us & Them helped make Dark Side of the Moon one of the most successful and enduring albums ever recorded.

Shine On Mr. Wright, and thank you for the dozens (if not hundreds) of hours many of us have spent (and will continue to spend) listening to your music.
