Richard Wright, also known as Rick Wright (born July 28, 1945), is the keyboard player of Pink Floyd. He was a full member from the beginning in 1966. He was ousted by Roger Waters during recording of The Wall and was only a paid session musician during The Wall (1980-1981) tour. Ironically, this meant he was the only member of Pink Floyd to make any money from the tour, as the other band members had to cover the losses incurred from their own pockets. He also worked as a session musician on the A Momentary Lapse of Reason album sessions and tour. He was reinstated for the making of The Division Bell (1994). He also played in the PULSE concert where he had to play a major role on the keyboard.
Richard William Wright, usually known as RickWright (born July 28, 1943 in London, England), is the keyboard player of Pink Floyd.
Though not as prolific a writer as his bandmates Roger Waters and David Gilmour, Wright was an essential contributor to Pink Floyd's long, epic compositions such as "A Saucerful of Secrets," "Echoes," and "Shine on You Crazy Diamond".
RICK YOUNG: Their idea of having an active control system coupled to human intelligence, so that, the human being was every bit a part of the machine and, so, in essence, it's the man that..., the airplane becomes, the manifestation of your mind.
KEN HYDE: The Wright brothers knew that this wing had to be strong enough to hold their support and carry the air loads that they needed, and it also had to be flexible to be able to withstand and do the wing warping that they needed to do for control.
