Pink Floyd's David Gilmour Pays Tribute To Rick Wright
"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.
