  Dick Parry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dick Parry (born December 22, 1942 in Kentford, England) is an English saxophonist.
Gilmour, Wright, and Parry at Konigsplatz - Munich, July 29, 2006

 Ancient Egypt Magazine - Reviews
The main and less forgivable error is that Parry suggests that the last "stone" pyramid of Egypt was that of Menkaure at Giza (late Fourth Dynasty), describing all the subsequent pyramids as being built in mud brick cased in limestone.
This theory, which Parry is honest enough to admit may have been proposed independently by others before him, argues that the pyramids were built using a combination of ramps and wooden rockers.
When used with ramps, Parry demonstrates that the size of the ramps can be reduced by increasing the gradient to 1 in 4, steeper than the 1 in 10 ramps required for sleds (a 1 in 10 ramp to the top of the Great Pyramid would have been around a mile long!).

 Pyramid Construction: The Problem with Dick Parry's Method
Innovating upon the so-called rockers theorized by Clarke and Engelbach, Parry proposed that four rockers be arranged around a block to form a cylinder.
Parry's ingenious operation reduces the amount of force needed to elevate blocks.
Parry's system calls for a very demanding ramp, because it must be either very wide or extremely strong.

The notable difference is the loss of engineer Alan Parsons; without him, the gauzy sound becomes a bit more crystallized, while the “voices in your head” subside.
