Richard Wright gone, End of Pink Floyd?
I just heard on the news-Richard Wright, keyboardist for Pink Floyd died of cancer at age 65. I'll always remember seeing him with Pink Floyd in 1994 in KC, and his masterful "The Great Gig In The Sky" on Dark Side of The Moon.

No, sorry to say. But PF days are officially done now.
Dave Gilmour stated just last week that he was more than happy doing his solo stuff (another album coming soon) and has no intention of patching things up with Waters. He's still pissed at what Waters did to Wright during and after The Wall....you do know Waters threatened to withhold release of The Wall if Wright didn't quit the band. Wright became a "session musician" for The Wall tour. Gilmour is also pissed off at Waters for taking all the credits on The Wall when Gilmour wrote the songs such as Run Like Hell, Comfortably Numb, etc. Let's face it, Dave will not get back with Waters. Plus he doesn't want to have to devote all the time and effort it would take to create another "Floyd level" album and tour (he refuses to cut an album without touring).
Richard was a great man and he will be sorely missed.
Thanks Richard, for everything, right down to the single note that created the song Echoes.

Well, PF went back in the 90's. I think it is really time that it was all laid to rest for good. Without Rick, PF has even less to go on with. Plus Waters and Gilmour are doing fine without it.
Let the dead RIP. Live 8 was fine and dandy, but it's time to let it go.
It's too late to fully patch up Water's leaving post The Wall, the name Pink Floyd, should be retired.

Even the Who's back out with only Townshend and Daltrey. Gilmour, Mason and Waters could do authentic Floyd if they had a mund to.

Well... no I can't agree with ya on that.
Howabout the great BEATLES. We know, John Lennon and George Harrison are no longer with us. But, still people love them.
I still respects them. Listen to them as and when I want.
Yet, Sir. Paul is still there. He still plays lovely songs.
No, great legends like Pink Floyd and The Beatles would never die. They'll be with us forever. Immortal legends.
RIP Richard Wright, John Lennon and George Harrison.
We love you all.
