Another of rock music's great musicians has gone to the great gig in the sky.
Wright wrote "The Great Gig In The Sky" and "Us And Them" for "Dark Side of the Moon", and later worked on the group's epic compositions such as "Atom Heart Mother," "Echoes" and "Shine On You Crazy Diamond."
R.I.P.Gilmour paid tribute to Wright Monday, saying his input was often forgotten.
"He was gentle, unassuming and private but his soulful voice and playing were vital, magical components of our most recognized Pink Floyd sound," he said. "I have never played with anyone quite like him."
