Yesterday keyboardist and founding member of Pink Floyd Richard Wright died of cancer at 65. With Gilmore and Waters taking the spotlight for most of the 70’s and on, he was a lesser publicly known figure in the band, yet a major element to their sound. He wrote both Us and Them and The Great Gig in The Sky, two of my favorite tracks from The Dark Side of the Moon, and shared writing and singing credits on Echoes – their greatest track as far as I am concerned. I have never heard any of his solo stuff, I will have to go check some out. In the meantime, here is Echoes from the Live in Pompeii video.
