Pink Floyd's David Gilmour: 'Music Is Lost Without Rick Wright'

October 6, 2008
Pink Floyd's David Gilmour: 'Music Is Lost Without Rick Wright'Pink Floyd's David Gilmour has said there is “all sorts of music” that he will no longer be able to play following the death of bandmate Rick Wright.

Gilmour paid tribute to the keyboardist, who died last month following a short battle with cancer, as he collected an award for Outstanding Contribution to Music in London this afternoon (October 6th).

He told the audience: "I'm going to dedicate this, if you don't mind, to my old friend and colleague Richard Wright who died a couple of weeks ago, (and) with whom I had worked for 40-odd years now.

“That's now come to an end. There's all sorts of music that I will not be able to play again without him. That's a source of sadness for me.

"He deserves this as much as I do. You could say that he was in the position of second fiddle, slightly behind some of the pushier chaps in the front. But his work was mighty important to our entire careers."

Wright had a significant influence on the instrumentation of some of Pink Floyd's classic albums, including 'Meddle', 'Dark Side Of The Moon' and 'Wish You Were Here'.
