Richard Wright dies

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/eu_britain_pink_floyd

LONDON - A Pink Floyd spokesman says founding member Richard Wright has died. He was 65.

Wright died Monday after a battle with cancer at his home in Britain. His family did not want to give more details about his death. The spokesman is Doug Wright, who is not related to the artist.

Richard Wright met Pink Floyd members Roger Waters and Nick Mason at college and joined their early band Sigma 6.

Sigma 6 eventually became Pink Floyd and Wright wrote and sang some of the band's key songs. He wrote "The Great Gig In The Sky" and "Us And Them" from Pink Floyd's 1973 "The Dark Side Of The Moon."

He left the group in the early 1980s to form his own band but rejoined Pink Floyd for their 1987 album "A Momentary Lapse of Reason."

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

No, that was our tribute last year to Syd Barrett.

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

A great talent.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I'm REALLY REALLY sad that the members of Pink Floyd are passing on. They're my favorite band. I feel a little like I'm losing friends.
Trying to look on the bright side...as long as Gilmore is still around, the nucleus, the voice of the band is still alive.

People give Waters and Gilmour so much credit, but Wright was instrumental in giving Floyd such a unique sound. News reports said his battle was quick...wonder if he was not diagnosed until it was too late...?

Whatever, sad news indeed....

"And you run, and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death "

Rest in peace...
