I searched - nothing came up.

EDIT: I edited the thread because I spelt his name wrong . Wow - I remember posting a thread not long ago about Noel being pushed off stage and now I'm posting this. Am I the bearer of bad news or what?



Quote by BBC News

Pink Floyd keyboard player and founder member Richard Wright has died aged 65 from cancer.

Wright appeared on the group's first album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, in 1967 alongside lead guitarist Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and Nick Mason.


Dave Gilmour joined the band at the start of 1968 while Barrett left the group shortly afterwards.

Wright penned songs on classic albums including Dark Side Of The Moon and Wish You Were Here.

Wright's spokesman said: "The family of Richard Wright, founder member of Pink Floyd, announce with great sadness that Richard died today after a short struggle with cancer.

"The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this difficult time."




daytripper edit:

im going to stick this for now, just because ive closed at least 10-15 of these threads already. there will probably be more, assuming this is going to hit the front page of UG tomorrow.

untuck, BUT:


STILL DONT MAKE ANY MORE OF THESE THREADS PLEASE!!!

Acack has suggested we mass change our avatars to this one:

(Invalid img)

I don't think I'm in the right spirit to change just yet since I haven't at all heard any Pink Floyd Stuff give or take one or two songs. I'll change when I really get to like them. I'm currently listening to The Piper at the Gates of Dawn for the first time (and consequently my first time listening to PF outside of the tracks Brick in the Wall/Wish you were here). I've got to say, it's not really to my liking but I've only just started so we'll see.

This only got on the BBC website an hour ago. The BBC News site is updated regularly while the UG front page is updated once each weekday AFAIK. It'll probably be there tomorrow.

I love Floyd. This is just sad.
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

So imagine life in a Vault-Tec Vault. Not just a future.
A brighter future... underground.

No, because Noel's a prick.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Quote by Les Paul Ell
Damn, this sucks! Should definately be the headline on the mainpage.

i'm sure it will be tomorrow. news stories typically take a day to get put up.

this really seems out of the blue. perhaps Gilmour knew about the state of things and that is why he was so dismissive of reunion rumors.

This sucks

Quote by Wilma Fingerdo
FYI, Pink Floyd made me teh druggie I am today

Once again Poe's law comes into play. Do you seriously think that Pink Floyd turned you into "teh druggie [you are] today" or was it a playful 'all Floyd listeners are pot heads' kind of comment.
