Richard Wright Tribute


Dave Gilmour was on a BBC program called Jools Holland Tuesday night to promote his new live CD/DVD, and instead of playing one of the songs on those CDs, he and his band performed Rick Wright's early Pink Floyd song "Remember A Day" from 1968--which has never been performed live before. It's always been a haunting favorite of Matt's. Syd Barrett plays guitar on the original--which means Gilmour has NEVER performed it before now! It was quite moving to see it on YouTube.
RIP Rick Wright
