People Who Died: Rick Wright 1943 - 2008

Forget about all the talk about Black Monday and the stock market crashing. Today, the world lost a great musician in Rick Wright of Pink Floyd. The keyboardist passed away at his home in England today from cancer(read the AP article on Wright's death here.) at the age of 65.

In addition to his keyboard contributions ,Wright also provided back vocals and harmonies to both guitarist David Gilmour and bassist Roger Waters' lead vocals on many Floyd classics.

In honor of Rick, we present you with "Echoes" from Pink Floyd's album Meddle.
