Richard Wright is dead – the man on the piano, who contributed so much to my favorite band Pink Floyd, the guy whose key board expertise made the music of The Wall and The Dark Side of the Moon so rich died after suffering from cancer.
The Pink Floyd was one band that spoke mostly through its music and none of the members courted publicity. So one did not know much about them. But thank you, lovely people, your music enriched us.
Words from “The Great Gig in the Sky”
“And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do, I
don’t mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There’s no reason for it, you’ve gotta go sometime.”
“If you can hear this whispering you are dying.”
“I never said I was frightened of dying.”
