The Richard Wright Archives
Welcome to The Richard Wright Archives, we had been around as the only Richard Wright website from 2001 – 2008, when Rick passed away our site took a beating and I had to shut it down for awhile. Well I am bringing it back today 7/28/12 for what would have been Richard Wright’s 69th Birthday. Happy Birthday Rick, all your fans miss you.
And welcome to the new version of The Richard Wright Archives. I will be slowly building the site back up, so please be patient as I get things done. Thanks!
If you click the menu link Discussion, it will take you directly to the Facebook group page for this site, consider it our forums.
And if you like our site here, why don’t you stop by our original site, The Syd Barrett Archives, serving up Syd Barrett goodness since 1997!
Richard Wright was an English pianist, keyboardist and songwriter, best known for his career with Pink Floyd. Wright’s richly textured keyboard layers were a vital ingredient and a distinctive characteristic of Pink Floyd’s sound. Wright frequently sang background and occasionally lead vocals on stage and in the studio with Pink Floyd (most notably on the songs “Time”, “Echoes”, “Wearing the Inside Out”, “Astronomy Domine” and “Matilda Mother”).
Though not as prolific a songwriter as his bandmates Roger Waters and David Gilmour, he wrote significant parts of the music for classic albums such as Meddle, The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, as well as for Pink Floyd’s final studio album The Division Bell.
