Tribute To Syd Barrett

It saddens me to announce that former Pink Floyd frontman Syd Barrett has died at the age of 60 due to complications from diabetes. He was one of the most enigmatic characters ever in music, and will be badly missed by the legions of bands he influenced. Pink Floyd's debut album, mostly written by Syd, Piper At The Gates of Dawn is arguably their best, while his solo albums The Madcap Laughs and Barrett contain moments of inspired genius, such as Rats and No Good Trying.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond.........
