music, random thought

farewell, rick wright

my best friend, trotter, and i used to dream of a pink floyd reunion.  roger waters and david gilmour sorting out their differences of course.  back to the days of dark side and meddle.  we envisioned this interstellar re convergence of rock giants to take place at the pyramids of giza.  obviously.

however, today, that dream died with richard william wright, 65.  rick was a founding member of arguably the greatest rock-n-roll band of all time.  he succumbed to his battle with cancer, but his contribution to the world of music will continue.  for more info on rick and his phenomenal career, please visit richard wright wiki.

insert cliche condolence…  shine on, you crazy diamond, rick!  wish you were here…  we’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl.  set the controls for the heart of the sun,  etc.

you’ll be missed rick wright…

all that you touch
all that you see
all that you taste
all you feel.
all that you love
all that you hate
all you distrust
all you save.
all that you give
all that you deal
all that you buy,
beg, borrow or steal.
all you create
all you destroy
all that you do
all that you say.
all that you eat
and everyone you meet
all that you slight
and everyone you fight.
all that is now
all that is gone
all thats to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

there is no dark side of the moon really.  matter of fact its all dark…
