Richard Wright obituary

I don’t usually do obituaries, but Pink Floyd, for whom Richard Wright played keyboards, synthesizers and organ for over forty years, was the virtual oxygen for part of my life. Wright was a founding member of “The Pink Floyd” back in 1965.

He died Monday, September 15, 2008, of cancer.

This is Richard Wright in action on “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” a tribute to another late founding Pink Floyd member, Syd Barrett. He and understudy, John Karin, play the opening music on two keyboards and two synthesizers:

And here is another video Pink Floyd fans might not have expected, Wright playing and singing “Comfortably Numb” with Pink Floyd front man, David Gilmour:
