Pink Floyd Legend Dies

Post by Dave Mercury on Tue Sep 16, 2008 3:55 am

Richard Wright, a founding member of the rock group Pink Floyd, died Monday. He was 65.

Pink Floyd's spokesman Doug Wright, who is not related to the artist, said Wright died after a battle with cancer at his home in Britain. He says the band member's family did not want to give more details about his death.

Wright met Pink Floyd members Roger Waters and Nick Mason in college and joined their early band, Sigma 6. Along with the late Syd Barrett, the four formed Pink Floyd in 1965.

The group's jazz-infused rock and drug-laced multimedia "happenings" made them darlings of the London psychedelic scene, and their 1967 album, "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn," was a hit.

In the early days of Pink Floyd, Wright, along with Barrett, was seen as the group's dominant musical force. The London-born musician and son of a biochemist wrote songs and sang.

Terrible sad news Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad RIP Rick.

That's a shame. Wonder what it means when it says they don't want to give more details?

Probably just want left alone to grieve privately.

Shame.

I heard this on the news this morning.

Sorry. I made another topic on this just so it would appear on the portal page in Bands/Artists. No need to post in the other thread.
