Unhappy Pink Floyd co-founder Richard Wright no more

Just a few days back I was watching the 'echoes' song from David Gilmour's Remember that night. Their music is still unmatched in quality.
Unfortunately they will never play again.

A very bad day for Floyd fans indeed.

Yeah... pretty sad. here's a lyric from one of his songs

"And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do, I
don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime."
"I never said I was frightened of dying."

Song - "Great Gig in the Sky"
Album - Dark side of the moon.
Written by Wright.

Really sad to know. PF music is the only music that i listen to on an almost daily basis.

I must have forgotten how many times i must have bought their music-The Wall and Dark Side of the Moon ( CD gets cranky after so much continous listening)

May god bless his soul!!!

Oh man this is indeed a very sad news.

Rick was a genius on the keyboards.

Pink Floyd is my all time favorite band and I literally worship these guys.

Rick - May your soul rest in peace.

Thank you for all the wonderful music. You'll be sorely missed.

So sad. May his soul rest in peace. He had his role in David Gilmour's latest album - On an island as well.
