R.I.P. Richard Wright

RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 16, 2008

Dear Editor,
    I was saddened to read that Richard Wright of the band Pink Floyd died of cancer on Monday. I don't know if any of the Chronicle writers and staff are fans of this band, but I would imagine that a good portion of the readers are, as well as myself. Pink Floyd was one of the best progressive rock bands of our time. I grew up on Pink Floyd's music, and I have been influenced heavily by their lyrics and their sound. Syd Barrett is gone as well, and now we have three members left: David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Roger Waters. Let's hope that they decide to reunite and tour once again before they check off the planet. Rest in peace, Rick, you will be greatly missed by myself and others.
