Richard Wright (1943-2008)

Pink Floyd founder and keyboardist Richard Wright passed away yesterday, aged 65. In the words of guitarist and bandmate David Gilmour, "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".

You can read a moving tribute to Wright and his work on The Reaction blog.
