Bye, bye, Mr. Wright.

Afer 40 years with Pink Floyd, Richard Wright, guitar player and keyboardist, passed away today at 65. He succumbed to cancer.
After meeing Roger Waters and Nick Mason at college, he signed up for their band Sigma 6, which eventually added Sid Barrett and evolved into Pink Floyd.
He will be always remembered by the amazing song The Great Gig in the Sky, from the album The Dark Side of the Moon.
He's got a gig, if not in sky, in Heaven.
Big jamming tonight with the dearly departed stars. I can see the Sid shinning like a Crazy diamond tonight....
