Richard Wright websiteRichard Wright was an essential part of Pink Floyd but never necessarily got the focus that David Gilmour or Roger Waters did over the years. The ovations that met him nightly on David's 2006 tour were well deserved but Richard always seemed taken aback by them.

It therefore seems entirely appropriate that an official website, celebrating the man and his music, should be set up, and now one has! Going under the easily remembered website address of rickwright.com, the site has been put together by Richard's family, and they describe the aims as follows:

"Welcome to the Richard Wright website, a space which aims to offer a unique insight into his musical life. This site doesn’t profess to be a comprehensive or encyclopaedic source of Richard Wright facts and figures or trivia. It is rather somewhere to explore and hopefully come away with a better sense of who Richard was creatively and what influenced his music, as part of and apart from Pink Floyd. Giving him an online presence is well overdue and we have spent some time curating and archiving content that we feel best celebrates his legacy in a way he would feel comfortable with.

"Through his own words and images, his musical loves and photos as well as the words of those who knew and worked with him, we believe that he would be happy to have this more personal window into his creative world opened."

The website is a fascinating and absorbing look at Richard, and includes many previously unseen pictures and videos, a number of which were taken by Richard himself, and some pages are also accompanied by musical excerpts. All very nicely done and we can only hope this is a step toward a keenly wished-for remaster/reissue of his superb solo albums...
