    RIP Richard - you gave great pleasure to the millions who came close to your sphere of influence. I am grateful to include myself amongst them.

    It's ridiculous how unnoticed this went. (Thank you, Lehman Bros. AIG, and Co..)

    R.I.P- of all the hundreds of bands I've seen live in my life, Pink Floyd was the best of the best, every time. My first Floyd show was the Dark Side of the Moon tour, 1973- awesome! I was hoping for one last tour. Rats. :cry::salute:

    Thanks to everyone that has commented. PF changed my perception on life..... it's not always what's there, much can be discerned by the void.

    A couple more tributes:

    I loved it when music was about musicians that played their musical instruments.

    I really thought, when I read the title, that you were VERY late in mourning the writer Richard Wright's death.
