Pink Floyd's keyboardist Rick Wright died today after a short battle with cancer. I got to interview him once about ten years ago. We were talking about his then-semi-current solo album, Broken China, but I couldn't resist asking him about the Dark Side Of The Moon/Wizard Of Oz rumors. He was really cool. Without saying it, I could tell he'd like to play with Floyd again, and he got his chance, twice. Once, of course, was at Live 8, and after that, the post-Roger Waters version of the band performed at a tribute to their original leader, Syd Barrett. I'm glad he had that closure.
