Wow, this one caught me off guard. Rick Wright, one of the founding members of Pink Floyd, passed away after a short battle with cancer. From Reuters:
"The family of Richard Wright, founder member of Pink Floyd, announce with great sadness, that Richard died today after a short struggle with cancer," his spokesman said in a statement. "The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this difficult time."
Pink Floyd were one of the true greats. My condolences to his family.
