Richard Wright 1943-2008

Rick WrightRichard Wright has died from Pink Floyd died very recently from a short spell of cancer on September 15th 2008. Richard Wright was a keyboard player for Pink Floyd and was a major part of the band's success. He contributed alot to the two albums Wish You Were Here and The Dark Side of the Moon.

David Gilmour paid tribute and this is what the Pink Floyd Guitarist and vocalist had to say about his great partner:

"No one can replace Richard Wright. He was my musical partner and my friend."

"In the welter of arguments about who or what was Pink Floyd, Rick's enormous input was frequently forgotten."

"He was gentle, unassuming and private but his soulful voice and playing were vital, magical components of our most recognised Pink Floyd sound.!"

"I have never played with anyone quite like him. The blend of his and my voices and our musical telepathy reached their first major flowering in 1971 on 'Echoes'. In my view all the greatest PF moments are the ones where he is in full flow. After all, without 'Us and Them' and 'The Great Gig In The Sky', both of which he wrote, what would 'The Dark Side Of The Moon' have been? Without his quiet touch the Album 'Wish You Were Here' would not quite have worked."
