Gary Wright – Dream Weaver

August 26, 2008 | 1976, Male, Top 40

Gary Wright was the keyboard player of the Progressive Rock band Spooky Tooth when they broke up for the second time in 1974. He went solo and recorded the album Dream Weaver which featured just himself on synthesiser/keyboard and Jim Keltner on drums.

Wright has said that he was inspired to write the song after receiving a book on Hinduism and India from George Harrison.

Ever wondered who played the piano on Nilsson’s 1972 hit Without You. Yes, it was none other than Gary Wright.

The song peaked at the Number 2 spot on the US charts.
