Pink Floyd's David Gilmour Pays Tribute To Rick Wright

(hennemusic) Guitarist David Gilmour is paying his own tribute to late keyboardist Rick Wright as Pink Floyd prepare to release their first new album in 20 years, "The Endless River", this fall.

"He is an integral part of the flavor of pretty much everything we've ever put out," Gilmour tells Absolute Radio, "and sometimes in all the noise that [former bandmate] Roger [Waters] and I tend to make - verbally, in the press, on the records - he tends to get slightly overlooked but his part has always been there on everything you hear. It's him, it's idiosyncratic, it's different to any other player and has that indefinable something that great players have."

Due November 10 (Nov 11 in North America), "The Endless River" serves as the band's tribute to Wright, who died from cancer in 2008 at the age of 65.

The project features material recorded by Gilmour, Wright and drummer Nick Mason during sessions for 1994's "The Division Bell." More including the video segment with Gilmour here.
