The late, great, Rick Wright, of Pink Floyd

Wow! Just heard the sad news that Rick Wright, the legendary keyboard player of Pink Floyd, has died at the age of just 65. I, like many people, will have to play some of the Floyd collection this week by way of a tribute.  I never saw the band live, but in 1973 I bought three albums that changed my life:

  • Tubular Bells, by Mike Oldfield, which inspired me to believe anyone can make music
  • Autobahm, by Kraftwerk, which, along with Tangerin dream, gave me a love for electronic music, and
  • Dark Side Of the Moon, by Pink Floyd.

Still great pieces of music, but Dark Side of the Moon is still the most amazing piece of music.
