I just wanted to put this up since I hadn't seen anything up yet.  Post news articles, your ideas, ect. if you wish.

Pink Floyd was an amazing band that inspired me and my freind back in high school.  Richard Wright's part of it was very much in the center of that and me and my freind use to go over the keyboard parts and such.

This has been all over the music boards I'm on.  It's sad.  He was a truly amazing musician, and so underrated.  The glue that held Pink Floyd together, IMO.

It's worth noting that during Nessa's first tour, her intro music, "The Great Gig In The Sky" was written by Richard Wright, and that was him playing on the Floyd track.  It ended on the B minor that VC used to segue into "C'est La Vie".

Too many great people are leaving us.....:(
