In Memoriam - Richard Wright 1943-2008

This morning I received the news that Keyboardist Richard Wright, a founding member of Pink Floyd has lost his battle with cancer.

Tonight in this special edition of Saturday Night Music Videos I offer a collection of musical pieces composed either by Richard alone or in collaboration with other members of Pink Floyd. First up is a collection of his solo works including several performances with fellow Pink Floyd member David Gilmour. These are followed by some early Pink Floyd numbers he composed or collaborated on. This early Floyd period seems to be Richard's most prolific with the band.

Wrapping it up are several more recent tunes he collaborated on, finishing with perhaps my favorite Pink Floyd tune "Echoes". (Check here to find out why)
