For many years, and in particular during my college years, I was a huge Pink Floyd fan. Indeed, I suspect the first trace of me on the internet probably involves a post on a Pink Floyd newsgroup of which I am now quite embarrassed (but my ideas was sound, damnit!). Thus it is with great sadness that I learned today via Quantum Moxie that Richard Wright, keyboardist for the Pink Floyd, has passed away due to cancer.
In honor, why don’t you check out “The Great Gig in the Sky”:
I can see the tornado now…
And I am not frightened of dying. Any time will do; I don’t mind.
Why should I be frightened of dying? There’s no reason for it–you’ve gotta go sometime. – Gerry O’Driscoll
