AUDIO: Pink Floyd's Rick Wright (1997)

Jim Sullivan, Rock's Backpages Audio, January 1997

The Floyd keyboard man on his solo album Broken China: writing about his wife's depression; the melancholia in his music; co-writing with lyricist Anthony Moore; Sinead O'Connor's involvement; and becoming a singer himself. He talks about what (isn't) up with Pink Floyd; his run-in with Roger Waters when recording The Wall, his dismissal from the band... and the current state of Syd Barrett.
