Richard William Wright died on the 15th of September 2008 following cancer at the age of 65. He was the lead pianist, keyboardist, lyricist and one of the original members of the band Pink Floyd. Wright had the lowest profile of any member of a band known for their disinclination to seek individual attention. He kept the details of his illness private as well.
Pink Floyd was (is) my favourite rock band.
He also had two solo albums Richard Wright’s Wet Dreams(1978) and Broken China to his name. And this song is one my favourites from his albums.
Rest in peace Rick Wright ..and sail on across the sea!!
