Gilmour And Wright Ride Again

Pink Floyd are never, ever getting back together.

We had an inkling of that fact after the band’s 2005 reunion at Live 8, but the September 15, 2008 death of Richard Wright confirmed it, with surviving members David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Nick Mason all confirming in various ways that there isn’t a snowball’s chance in hell of a Pink Floyd reunion without Richard. Lucky for us, the years leading up to Richard’s death saw various configurations of band members teaming up to work on special projects, and our favorite comes in the form of a 2006 AOL Sessions performance that saw Richard and his old friend David Gilmour sharing a stage and a song for “Comfortably Numb,” that old magic ever present as Richard maintained a steady presence from behind his synthesizers while David took the lead on guitar and vocals.

Fiercely intimate as these two legends came together for one of the last times before Richard’s death, this performance of “Comfortably Numb” is a fantastic little throwback to one of the greatest musical matchups the rock world has ever seen; be sure to check it out and give it a listen via the footage below!
