Poor Richard. I just heard about it too, from Liam. I'm stunned. I knew he was thin, but he was always thin, wasn't he. OMG, I'm crying for him and his family. Poor Richard.

RE: Richard Wright has died aged 65
There's already two threads. Maybe they could be merged?

R. I. P Syd Barrett (06/01/46-07/07/06)
R. I. P Rick Wright (28/07/43-15/09/08)

Rest In Peace Rick. My dearest condolences to his loved ones.


note,
For now i think we'll just let the threads go. When Syd passes there were many different ones and they were eventually merged together. This isn't the time to worry over that right now.

And now the final solution can be applied.

RE: Richard Wright has died aged 65
I can't explain how upset I am to hear that he's passed. Not a day has gone by for many years of my life, where I don't listen to a Floyd record and think about Rick's amazing contributions. This is an extremely devastating loss to music and a very sad day. I just want him to receive the respect he and his has always deserved. He is amazing and Pink Floyd would not be so without his contributions.....


R.I.P. Rick

I always felt that this song was the true essence of pink floyd, and that the unity in it was truly a beautiful thing.

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine.

And no-one called us to the land
And no-one knows the wheres or whys
But something stirs and something tries
And starts to climb towards the light

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can

And no-one calls us to move on
And no-one forces down our eyes
And no-one speaks and no-one tries
And no-one flies around the sun

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
inciting and inviting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

And no-one sings me lullabies
And no-one makes me close my eyes
And so I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky

REST IN PEACE RICK
i couldnt believe my hearing today when the radio said rick wright had passed away last night. WHAT? i'm still in shock... I cried and cried all the way to school. i cant express the grief i feel and no doubt thousands do as well - i know this thread wont do Rick justice at all, i just had to send my love and respect to him and fellow fans that will be mourning.
Rick is just awesome, ever since he started, and will shine on into the future. Syd - he'll be joining you there... shine on you crazy diamonds.
Love you Rick!! WE'LL NEVER FORGET YOU.
