R.I.P. Richard Wright

Richard Wright Moves On

My pal Teevie just sent me the word that Richard Wright, founding member and keyboardist of Pink Floyd, passed away after a short struggle with cancer.

Sometimes I forget how much Pink Floyd influenced my musical development. I would spend hours listening to Richard’s keyboard skills on Echoes, Cirrus Minor, Sisyphus, and countless other (more recognizable) tunes. Stylistically, he wasn’t a flashy player, and he was certainly the master of understatement. I’m certain he will be missed by many.

An online memorial is available for people to leave their condolences.
