And I am not frightened of dying. Any time will do; I don’t mind.
Why should I be frightened of dying? There’s no reason for it—you’ve gotta go sometime.
– Gerry O’Driscoll
His most commercially popular compositions for Pink Floys are „The Great Gig in the Sky” and „Us and Them” from 1973’s The Dark Side of the Moon. He also made essential contributions to Pink Floyd’s long, epic compositions such as „Atom Heart Mother”, „Echoes” and „Shine On You Crazy Diamond”.

I never said I was frightened of dying.
– Puddie Watts, wife of roadie Peter Watts
