andee's world: R.I.P Rick Wright

andee's world

Hello and welcome to my blog. This space will be devoted to opinions, observations, lists, articles and whatever else I feel like posting. Subjects will include music, human nature, politics, life in NYC, etc. If I paste someone else's writing up here, it is because the author said something way better than I ever could. By the way, I don't claim to be a particularly smart guy; I'm just a musician with some opinions. If you disagree with me, that's cool -- but then, you're probably wrong.

R.I.P Rick Wright

The legendary Pink Floyd keyboardist died today.

Rick and his band have made an incalculable impact on modern music (I for one was changed forever by The Wall). Seminal Pink Floyd releases like Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here set a high water mark for what could be achieved in a rock album, paving the way for countless bands (including Radiohead, The Cure, etc).
