Richard Wright (Pink Floyd) RIP

20 posts in this topic

Just need to do a post for the keyboardist of Pink Floyd who passed away on the 15th. The man was a founding member in the band and really had lots to do with the 'sound' that made the Floyd famous.

Ya I was shocked to hear it yesterday, went home and played some albums. He was a great keyboardist, never seemed to seek out publicity or anything, just a true pro.

Also, I don't think it is getting a lot of advertising but next monday at the big coon rapids movie theatre, there is a screening of David Gilmour's new concert DVD and I believe Richard played with him on this concert, so get one last chance to see him do his thing.

Sad to hear. I would have loved to have the chance to see the original band live. Best concerts ever from what i have seen on video.

RIP Richard Wright

Hotrod,

I did see them. On their Animals tour at Soldier Field in the Windy City. One of the best concerts I have seen and I have seen them all! Well most. Three bands I never got a chance to see and can not do so anymore are The Beatles, The Doors and Led Zepplin. Other than that, I have seen them all.

I saw the Floyd in 94, and each of Roger Waters latest tours, unbelieveable shows is all I can say. Waters doing dark side of the moon last year was awesome. Hope both he and gilmour will do tours again before hanging it up.

I say the music sounds as good today as it did back then, in fact IMO their stuff from the 70's surpasses the stuff released currently.

For any of the Floyd fans out there, this monday at select theatres in the metro there is a concert recorded live from David Gilmour from his 06 tour, the trailer makes it look like a lot of the hits will be played and Richard is a part of the band, looks like a tribute piece has been added and the two of them do what is reported as an awesome reprise of Echoes! I am checking it out at the Coon Rapids theatre, monday 7pm. I think it is also in Oakdale and Woodbury
