(FROM AP) — Richard Wright, a founding member of the British rock band Pink Floyd, died in his home on Monday (Sept. 15) at the age of 65. He had been battling cancer. Wright formed Pink Floyd along with Roger Waters and Nick Mason. He wrote, played keyboards, and sang on some of the band’s biggest songs, like ”The Great Gig In The Sky” and ”Us And Them” from 1973’s The Dark Side Of The Moon. He left band in the early ’80s but rejoined for their 1987 album A Momentary Lapse of Reason. (AP via Yahoo!)
