Richard Wright, Pink Floyd founding member, dies at 65

Richard Wright, keyboardist and founding member of Pink Floyd died today at his home in England after a brief battle with cancer.   The LA Times published an obituary here.  I think the band said it best themselves in Time from Dark Side of the Moon:
"And you run and you run
To catch up with the sun
But it’s sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way
But you’re older
And shorter of breath
And one day closer to death."
