Remembering Games and Daisy Chains and Laughs

Pink Floyd co-founder and keyboardist Richard Wright lost a battle with cancer at his home in Britain. He was 65. He, Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and Nick Mason formed Pink Floyd in 1965.

After a falling out with Waters and Gilmour during the making of "The Wall", Wright was relegated to a session musician and was not featured on "The Final Cut". After forming his own band, Zee, Wright began recording with Pink Floyd again after Roger Waters left the band in 1985.

Wright released two solo albums, "Wet Dream" in 1978 and "Broken China" in 1996.

It's time to crank up some Floyd tonight.

Shine On.
