On July 2, 2005, the classic ’70s-era Pink Floyd lineup played live together for the first time since 1981 at the Live 8 charity concert. It will also be the last, as keyboardist Richard Wright passed away in 2008. The smile on Roger Waters’ face that day was as big as mine, and it’s a musical moment that I will never forget.
