    I'm devastated...



    Over the last week I had been viewing the latest David Gilmour DVD "Remember That Night", which Richard is all over. I finished the two disc set loaded with over 5 hours worth of stuff just last night. Odd timing.

    The world has lost an amazing keyboard player.

    I have had a bit of the same type of thing happening. A friend of mine was supposed to send me a rip of his LP "Wet Dream". I've been expecting it for a couple weeks. It arrived today....

    At least I have some more of his work to remember him by.

    Yesterday, on my lunch hour, I slipped off to a little used record shop not to far from work. As I was peeling through stacks of records they were playing "Dark Side Of the Moon". I stopped and thought to myself that that record is so timeless. It Sounds amazing no matter where you are or what time your listening to it.
    Then I got back to work and found out Rick had passed away. Very sad.

    I think he was probably the most underrated keyboard player in Rock Music. Anyone who could write "The Great Gig In The Sky" has to be a special artist.

    I was lucky enough to have bought "Wet Dream" & "Broken China" when they were released on CD. They are extremely hard to find now.
    Geoff, I think "Wet Dream" is really his best effort and the probably the best one to remember him by.
