Richard Wright joins the “Great Gig in the Sky”

Rest in peace, Richard Wright. You will be missed more than you likely knew.

The Great Gig in the Sky
(Wright) 4:44

“And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do, I
don’t mind. Why should I be frightened of dying?
There’s no reason for it, you’ve gotta go sometime.”

“If you can hear this whispering you are dying.”

“I never said I was frightened of dying.”

(Instrumental)

There are four great songs that feature Richard Wright’s piano/keyboard free for the listening from imeem.com available on the WiredBlog article noted above.
