Me he sorprendido dándome cuenta de lo mucho que la música de Rick Wright ha significado en mi vida, y lo triste que me ha resultado su muerte.

Volviendo a escuchar, ahora, aquella parte de Pink Floyd en la que él dejó su huella, veo, por primera vez, que fueron aquéllos discos en los que tuvo más influencia, empezando por Atom Heart Mother, que desgasté hasta la saciedad en mi habitación de niño, los que en realidad me calaron hasta hoy.

También entiendo ahora (manda cojones), la razón por la que The Wall me parece tan vacío y grandilocuente...a veces no acabas de ver la auténtica estatura de la gente hasta que no ves el tamaño del vacío que dejan cuando se van. :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

Hay muchas formas de ser virtuoso
el es de un grupo minusculo de gente que tocaba para la musica...no para el!
al servicio ,de una idea inmensa que fue floyd, desde sus inicios hasta no hace tanto tiempo.
Descanse en paz.

"Gilmour y Waters homenajearon a Wright"

Y la carta completa de Gilmour en http://www.davidgilmour.com

"No one can replace Richard Wright. He was my musical partner and my friend.

In the welter of arguments about who or what was Pink Floyd, Rick's enormous input was frequently forgotten.

He was gentle, unassuming and private but his soulful voice and playing were vital, magical components of our most recognised Pink Floyd sound.

I have never played with anyone quite like him. The blend of his and my voices and our musical telepathy reached their first major flowering in 1971 on 'Echoes'. In my view all the greatest PF moments are the ones where he is in full flow. After all, without 'Us and Them' and 'The Great Gig In The Sky', both of which he wrote, what would 'The Dark Side Of The Moon' have been? Without his quiet touch the Album 'Wish You Were Here' would not quite have worked.

In our middle years, for many reasons he lost his way for a while, but in the early Nineties, with 'The Division Bell', his vitality, spark and humour returned to him and then the audience reaction to his appearances on my tour in 2006 was hugely uplifting and it's a mark of his modesty that those standing ovations came as a huge surprise to him, (though not to the rest of us).

Like Rick, I don't find it easy to express my feelings in words, but I loved him and will miss him enormously.

Aunque no son de mi época, yo crecí con Pink Floyd y sobre todo, con Rick Wright.

Descansa en paz, maestro :(
