Im right there with you Libby, Im pretty much useless right now. I think its finally hit me, a chapter of my life is over. I know its probably ridiculous to feel so much for a music group when you break it down and that all sounds so dramatic but Floyd have been a way of life for me, theyve been my diary and my vision. Its hard to see that come to an end and Ive only just realised it.

How do you feel, how do you feel????

I'm still pretty freakin crushed. Last weekend I watched a VH1 special on the making of DSOTM and I pretty much broke down. I've been in denial about it. It's been nice to read the posts on here, to see how much he was appreciated. In my daily life I don't really know (m)any PF fans...I know I'm not on often, but thank you all for being here when I do log on. :)

Rick Wright was such an exceptional musician and is sorely missed.

Shine on Rick.

He would have been 66 today.

he was a great keyboardist and he sang very nice. He is still very much missed by Pink Floyd fans everywhere.

It does indeed. I still remember sitting at the desk I'm at now, listening to the news on the radio when the newsreader started the sentence with the words "Pink Floyd...." At that moment I just knew something bad had happened. :(

Grief. :(

It never stops. It must mean something, besides pointless pain. You gave the universe a gift. That's an amazing thing. That meant something, and will, for eternity, however long that may be. Thank you for that. You will be missed and remembered.

Man, I suck at remembering dates! Except when I reminded you all of Roger's birthday...

Rick, PLEASE forgive me my loving soul...

Sad to say, but I missed out on hearing the BBC show 'Remember a Day' with Rick talking about his time with the group. Does anyone know where I still find that show? It is no longer on the bbc website.

Cheers.
