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.

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

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.
