    Richard Wright has died aged 65

    Another great musician, heads for the 'Hart of the sun'

    Floyd founder Wright dies at 65

    Pink Floyd keyboard player and founder member Richard Wright has died aged 65 from cancer.

    Wright appeared on the group's first album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, in 1967 alongside lead guitarist Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and Nick Mason.
    Dave Gilmour joined the band at the start of 1968 while Barrett left the group shortly afterwards. Gilmour said: "He was such a lovely, gentle, genuine man and will be missed terribly by so many who loved him."
    Richard, say hi to Syd for us.

    I met Rodger Waters when he played at glastonbury festival a few years back.
    I was a fan of early Floyd, and Syd Barrett solo stuff which Rodge was kind enough to tell a few stories about how the the early crazy songs come about....

    Rich Wright was still a young man, and will be missed greatly by life long Floyd fans.

    I'm sure Richard and Syd will be playing a little:

    Pow R. Toc H or Interstellar Overdrive or possibly some Astronomy Domine together now. Or you can go "rare-school" on us and shout out some Dark Globe., or "newer-school" Breakthrough

    Floyd fans know what I mean!
