23. Rick Wright was the secret force behind that band.

You may or may not know that half of the vocals on "Comfortably Numb" are sung by him.

I think their earliest stuff (first two albums, but especially early singles - check out "Relics" if you haven't) is the best. Wright wrote "paint box" which I think is one of their greatest songs, including the Barrett ones. On their later albums, it was him providing a lot of the glue holding the group together.
