    Boy, the only time you expect a death is when you least expect it.

    A very sad loss, in the early period of the band he wrote some very underrated songs for the band, and throughout the group's career was responsible for many of their memorable melody parts and also overall sound due to keyboards having such a dominating role in their music, starting from the earliest days where alot of Farsifa organ was used into the 70's where a wider scope of keyboard types and tones were incorperated.

    I think Rick Wright was especially good when it came to playing piano. Love Scene version 4 recorded during the Zabriskie Point soundtrack sessions is a really great example of Rick's piano playing;
