RIP Richard Wright

You may not immediately recognize the name, but you know who Richard Wright is. As the keyboard player for Pink Floyd since the mid-Sixties, Wright contributed incredible sonic textures to the band's work and really helped expand the boundaries of my beloved Progressive Rock.

Wright died at the age of sixty-five after a battle with cancer. The world of music has lost one of the best and the brightest.

Shine on, you crazy diamond...
