Oh shit! Damn, I read it here first. This sucks. I'm a huge Floyd fan.

RIP Richard

Oh god.

Wright's composition, Summer '68, is my favourite Floyd song. The lyrical content may not exactly be appropriate, but I nonetheless feel compelled to play it in memory of him.

RIP Rick.

This is ridiculous. May he and his awesome keyboard rest in peace.

It's going to be tough to listen to Summer '68 now. He was always that extra something; classics like Dark Side Of The Moon would not have been the same without him.

RIP

It's hard to think of anything appropriate to say.

Rest in peace, Rick. You were a brilliant musician.
