..But first, we pay tribute to founding Pink Floyd member Richard Wright, who passed away earlier today at age 65 from a battle with an unidentified strain of cancer.  I must admit, I didn't even know Richard was ill and this took me by complete surprise.  He seemed like such a nice guy and of course, talented as hell.  So, we remember when they were young..."...we say goodbye before we say hello.." (from "Summer '68" off Atom Heart Mother, one of my favorite Richard Wright tunes)
