VI-IX)", "Money", "Us And Them" and "Wearing The Inside Out". Dick Parry also played these solos with Pink Floyd on tour between 1973 and 1977, he also returned for their 1994 tour.
After Pink Floyd, Parry went on to play with Gilmour on his live dates and also played "Money" in Pink Floyd's Live 8 Reunion.
