RIP Richard Wright

While I'm spending most of my lunch here I just want to throw up a tribute to Richard Wright a founding member of Pink Floyd . Richard passed away Monday from cancer related problems. He was 65.
This is from "Pulse" recorded at Earl's Court, London, 1994:




Many sweet Summer nights in my youth were spent cruising Kentucky Mountain backroads with friends listening to Pink Floyd while stoned to the max.
I won't go into Richard Wright's biography. Lot's of those can be(and should be) found elsewhere, but he was a critical part of my musical journey and enjoyment.
Read a tribute to Richard from fellow Pinker David Gilmour on his website.
RIP Richard.
