Pink Floyd’s Richard Wright (1943-2008)
The VAR Guy was saddened to hear Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright died today from cancer. Totally depressing, but thank you for the memories, Mr. Wright.
Around 1985, The VAR Guy purchased his first CD player… along with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Amazing.
For most of 1988, The VAR Guy ditched high school and spent considerable time at Pink Floyd’s Momentary Lapse of Reason world tour. Sixth-row seats at Giant Stadium in New York. Unbelievable. Sure, there was no Roger Waters. But the rest of the band played on.
And Richard was fantastic. The obvious choice for today’s video clip is “Wish You Were Here.” But The VAR Guy decided to go a different course, and instead chose “Any Colour You Like,” which has extensive keyboards.
What a loss. Depressing day.
