Although I normally talk about business leaders, I think running a band is a lot like running a business.

Richard Wright created some amazing music for all of us to listen to and enjoy. I had a great opportunity to once see Richard play live and there is nothing in this world like a Pink Floyd concert. They really know how to put on a show.

Pink Floyd member Richard Wright dies (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26722696/) - A Pink Floyd spokesman says founding member Richard Wright has died. He was 65. Wright died Monday after a battle with cancer at his home in Britain.

Richard Wright met Pink Floyd members Roger Waters and Nick Mason at college and joined their early band Sigma 6.

Sigma 6 eventually became Pink Floyd and Wright wrote and sang some of the band’s key songs. He wrote “The Great Gig In The Sky” and “Us And Them” from Pink Floyd’s 1973 “The Dark Side Of The Moon.”

Please take a moment and watch this video. Pink Floyd's "Us & Them."

Share with us how Pink Floyd effected you.
