One of our most distinctive and adventurous keyboard players left us today. Pink Floyd's Richard Wright died of cancer at his home in Britain. He was 65. It's impossible to describe the monumental impact that Wright's playing, songwriting and gentle voice had on millions of listeners, especially musicians with psychedelic tendencies. Just yesterday, while jogging with my iPod in shuffle mode, I was lucky enough to chance on Pink Floyd's Funky Dung, which features the percussive and trippy sounds of Wright's brilliant organ playing. Rest in peace, Mr. Wright. Thank you for daring to play the way you did – and for making my world so much more colorful and sonically satisfying.
