    Pink Floyd keyboard player and founder member Richard Wright has died aged 65 from cancer.

    Wright appeared on the group's first album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, in 1967 alongside lead guitarist Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and Nick Mason.

    Dave Gilmour joined the band at the start of 1968 while Barrett left the group shortly afterwards.

    Wright penned songs on classic albums including The Dark Side Of The Moon and Wish You Were Here.

    His spokesman said: "The family of Richard Wright, founder member of Pink Floyd, announce with great sadness that Richard died today after a short struggle with cancer.

    "The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this difficult time."

    He did not say what form of cancer the self-taught keyboard player and pianist had. ...

    It is nothing against you to fall down flat, but to lie there - that's disgrace
