As many of my long time readers know, I am a musician and a songwriter. You can find lots of my music and even a video I did for fun here on the site. At heart I am a keyboard player who can make pretty sounds with a guitar, but at heart I am still the little boy who took piano lessons at 5 years old. I had many heroes growing up including Elton John, Billy Joel, Rick Wakeman and of course, Rick Wright of Pink Floyd.
In my years growing up, I was a huge fan of Pink Floyd. The lush sounds and melodic piano lines inspired me to practice. I can remember begging my piano teacher to let me work on the “Great Gig in the Sky” and feeling so excited when she finally, reluctantly said yes.
Today, the man who inspired me by playing those beautiful lines, and introducing me to the beauty of Moog, has gone on to the great gig in the sky. I pay tribute with a hole in my heart. Rick, You will be missed but I thank you for the inspiration when I was a teenager!
