Richard Wright R.I.P.

Richard Wright of psychedelic rock legend, Pink Floyd, lost his life to cancer on Monday. He died amongst family in his home in Britain at just 65 years of age.

Wright's textured keyboard parts added an essential element to Pink Floyd's sound. The first time I heard Pink Floyd, I was but a young lass. The record The Dark Side of the Moon was about as close to outer space as I've ever gotten and that's saying a lot because I've stood atop a few REALLY tall buildings. All kidding aside however, my twelve year old world was changed forever and for that I'll always be thankful. So cheers to the late, great Richard Wright. The world is a better place for having known you.
