RIP Richard Wright

Pink Floyd's keyboard player passed away last week. He was the group's George Harrison to Roger Waters and David Gilmour's Paul McCartney and John Lennon. George Harrison contributed Something to the Beatles' cannon; Rick Wright was the songwriter of Us and Them. What a song - melodic as can be, with a killer sax solo, and just as depressing as anything else in Pink Floyd's oeuvre.
