Death Summary: Richard William Wright died after battling cancer for numerous years.

Who was Richard Wright : Wright was a self-taught keyboardist and pianist, but will forever be remembered for his long career with Pink Floyd.

His multilayered, often called richly textured, sound was a vital ingredient in the distinctive sound that was Pink Floyd. Though he was not known for his songwriting ability like his band mates Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and David Gilmour… but he did write significant portions of Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and Meddle.

Occasionally Wright would sing, mainly background, but his vocals can be heard on Time and Echoes.
