Re: R.I.P Richard Wright,Pink Floyd's Keyboard Player
It is funny that in all the years that Floyd was a part of my life, my discussions with friends, musicians etc. always centered around their music, their genre, lyrics, their visual references,their place in the history of rock etc, but somehow Richard Wright was never discussed.
Roger Water's talent, Gilmour's guitar tone, occasionally even Mason, yes, but Richard Wright? Never.
Even the title of the thread has to spell out " Pink Floyd's keyboard player".
Now its been 2 days, and everyone calling with this tone full of shock & disbelief about the fact that's he's no more. Everyone seems collectively stupefied, suddenly.
The loss seems bigger than we anticipated, eh?
Do we always tend realize value after we lose it?
