Richard Wright, keyboardist and singer/ songwriter for Pink Floyd has died.
He wrote the lyrics to the song The Great Gig In The Sky, I felt it only appropriate to go with that for the headline.
Mr. Wright has passed away after battling cancer, at home.
The family has no further comments at this time.
RIP Dude, thanks for the memories and the awesome tuneage. You will be missed.
H/T LA Times for the article.
Fuck, now I'm depressed.This really is a Black Monday now.Although the ladies vocals in this have amazed me since the first time I ever heard this song, they did know how to find extraordinary talent.Just beautiful.
The end of an era.
