LONDON (AP) -- A Pink Floyd spokesman says founding member Richard Wright has died. He was 65.

Wright died Monday after a battle with cancer at his home in Britain. His family did not want to give more details about his death. The spokesman is Doug Wright, who is not related to the artist.

Richard Wright met Pink Floyd members Roger Waters and Nick Mason at college and joined their early band Sigma 6.

Sigma 6 eventually became Pink Floyd and Wright wrote and sang some of the band's key songs. He wrote "The Great Gig In The Sky" and "Us And Them" from Pink Floyd's 1973 "The Dark Side of the Moon."

He left the group in the early 1980s to form his own band but rejoined Pink Floyd for their 1987 album "A Momentary Lapse of Reason."

For those not familiar with it, I highly recommend this album to fans of Mr. Wright.



Richard Wright - Wet Dream (1978)

This was released between Animals & The Wall and features quite a great band:

Richard Wright - Keyboards & Vocals
Mel Collins (King Crimson) - Saxophones
Snowy White (Thin Lizzy) - Guitar
Larry Steele (session bassist) - Bass
Reg Isadore (Robin Trower) - Drums

The album is split about equally between instrumental and vocal tracks. The style is similar to Meddle/Dark Side Of The Moon era with more of a jazz focus.

65 years of abuse will take it's toll, WoW!

Truly one of the pioneers of progressive psych art. That was acid rock in the beginning. What a HUGE musically imaginative and creative mind.

The Floyd rank among my all time faves from back in the day.

Time to put the headphones on in and slip some 'Meddle' in honor of Rick.
