Time.....


...to pay our own RESPECT to Richard Wright (shown far right, above), keyboardist for Pink Floyd, who passed away one week ago today. Safe journeys voyager!


So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here
.

Wright sounds great on that mono version of PatGoD.

How I wish I could travel back in time to see the Pink Floyd play at the UFO. I did manage to see them once back in '94 but to have seen them back in the 60's must have been something else.
