My Favourite Solo

Prog - - Intro - By Diego Te­jeida (Haken)

“It has to be Richard Wright’s solo on Wel­come To The Ma­chine by Pink Floyd. I first lis­tened to it when I was in my teens and I didn’t re­ally like it. I thought, ‘Wow, how do they get away with get­ting the key­board player that loud?’ But I lis­tened to it more and more and it’s ac­tu­ally very el­e­gant – ev­ery sin­gle note is sup­posed to be where it is, and the sound of it is in­cred­i­ble.

"Richard Wright was an ex­pres­sive key­board player – some­times what he did was very sim­ple, just hold­ing a chord on a Ham­mond or­gan. But it’s how he held it that was im­por­tant.” DEV
