I'm speechless.

The best way to think about him is to hear his lovely voice:

We will miss you Rick

RIP for the man who provided the synth magic in Pink Floyd.

Pink Floyd wouldn't be Pink Floyd without Richard. His beautiful voice, and genius at the piano/keyboards/synth brought such a unique and memorable flavor.

Thanks Rick! Rest in Peace!

I love Floyd. I may have to bust out Live at Pompeii later tonight. RIP Richard Wright.

It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!

Somewhat different from the Pompei version. Gotta envy the guys playing backup...

If anyone's interested, on the homepage of Planet Rock - http://www.planetrock.co.uk/ - there's a link to post a tribute to Rick.

Great to see the nice things that've been written about him.

:D :D :D

Thanks for the link Vic. What few people comment is that without Rick's contribution many artists such as Tangerine Dream, Kitaro,Vangelis , Jean Michel Jarre or Brian Eno himself wouldn't have been so important to music.
