Shine on...


My heart is heavy following the news that Richard Wright has passed on to play The Great Gig in The Sky.

You'll be missed.

Thank you for the music.

I could write about him, but as my bro Travis always says... It's all about the music.

"Us and Them"



"Wish You Were Here", still

Music is a great tribute. Nice choices to play.

Travis said...

If you threw me down a hole and refused to give me CAKE until I said what my favorite Pink Floyd song was...I'd say Wish You Were Here.

Shine on Rick.

That's the great thing about recordings, is that the music doesn't die...

Anndi said...

FC: I think it came as a surprise for many. I wasn't aware he was ill.

Brian: I'm thankful for the body of work left behind by Rick.

So sad. I hate it when we lose someone who has given us so much. 'Shine on you crazy diamond' and 'Comfortably numb' are my songs of choice from the floyd.
