Pink Floyd member Wright dies at 65
44 minutes ago

Richard Wright, a founder member of Pink Floyd, has died at the age of 65 after battling cancer, his spokesman said.

Wright played the keyboard with the legendary band and wrote music in classic albums such as Dark Side Of The Moon and Wish You Were Here.

His spokesman said: "The family of Richard Wright, founder member of Pink Floyd, announce with great sadness, that Richard died ... after a short struggle with cancer. The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this difficult time."

Wright's spokesman did not say from what form of cancer the star had been suffering.

The self-taught keyboardist and pianist met fellow band members Roger Waters and Nick Mason while at architecture school.

He was a founder member of The Pink Floyd Sound in 1965, and the group's previous incarnations, such as Sigma 6.

Damn, I was just pulling out some old floyd yesterday and thinking about how much I love Rick Wrights style on those keyboards.  What a shame.  Well, I'm sure he got the full life experience...tho it sucks to die from cancer. 

Thanks Rick...you made some damn fine music.  RIP.
