Nice quote man, Too bad so many people overlooked Rick's contributions...MFB mentioned some good stuff, but IMO, while I absolutely love everything that was "pre-The Wall", the style of his playing in the early material, withholding anything "Barrett" such as "More" or "Obscured" resonates in my head when I hear his name.He was almost the VOICE of Pink Floyd....I always go back to 'Summer '69' or 'Echoes'..... not to mention 'Careful with that Axe' So much to remember...I give up...I m putting on "Meddle" right now in rememberance.
LONG LIVE THE FLOYD!
1 hour later and it still sucks...What a great musician...
