    LONDON - Richard Wright, a founding member of the rock group Pink Floyd, died Monday. He was 65.

    In the early days of Pink Floyd, Wright, along with Barrett, was seen as the group’s dominant musical force. The London-born musician and son of a biochemist wrote songs and played the keyboard.

    “Rick’s keyboards were an integral park of the Pink Floyd sound,” said Joe Boyd, a prominent record producer who worked with Pink Floyd early in its career.

    the thing is I am not even sure Wright was with the band for this album. I think he was but I don't have the whole chronology of the band down.


    None the less the song kicks ass and fits the thread.

    This song is from the mid-70's isn't it?
    Written about Sid after he went nuts? Wright was with the band until 80-something, so he would have contributed to the album.

    Yes, it is about Syd.

    I just had to cover my proverbial butt in the event some Floyd historist saw this and went off on me
