Richard WrightToday, September 15th, marks the very sad, sixth anniversary of the passing of Richard Wright, and along with many around the world, our thoughts are with his family and friends today, as they remember him.

A founding member of the early Pink Floyd, his distinctive keyboard work was a cornerstone of the band's music, yet his contribution was, of course, so much greater than that, as a vocalist and songwriter, responsible for many significant pieces of music throughout the band's career. Richard was such a key member of the band, and without him, the band would surely have trod a dramatically different path. The affection of the fans for Richard was clear to see on the 2006 David Gilmour tour, where Richard often received the loudest cheers each night.

As with previous years, a steady stream of emails are arriving here from fans who are thinking of Richard today, and who will - like us - be playing his music in tribute throughout today. You can share your thoughts on Richard, his contribution to Pink Floyd, and his contribution to your own life, over at our Facebook page.
