I'm a fan, it'* upsetting to hear.
I was never a big fan of the syd era floyd however. I would be much more crushed to hear the passing of Gilmore, Waters, Wright or Mason.

Now if only Floyd and Waters would reunite again like at live 8!

Just think............

There would have been no Dark Side of The Moon,Animals,Wish You Were Here and more great music I can't think of right now

One of themost awesome Pink Floyd tracks I can think of is the live version of Comfortably Numb from the album The Delicate Sound of Thunder
