Syd Barrett
Syd Barrett (born Roger Keith Barrett on 6 January 1946 and died 7 July 2006) was an English singer, songwriter, guitarist and artist. He is most remembered as a founding member of British psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd, providing major musical and stylistic direction in their early work, although he left the group in 1968 amidst speculations of mental illness exacerbated by heavy drug use.


He was active as a rock musician for about seven years, recording two albums with Pink Floyd and two solo albums before going into self-imposed seclusion lasting more than thirty years. His post–rock band life was as an artist and keen gardener, ending with his death in 2006, and a number of biographies have been written about him since the 1980s. During his withdrawal from public life there were numerous speculative, although largely appreciative works about him, most notably his former band Pink Floyd's 1975 album Wish You Were Here.

I was just thinking of him today since I read an article about the passing of another Pink Floyd member. It annoyed me because it didn't mention him at all and completely ignored his existence. The song "I Know Where Syd Barrett lives" by Television Personalities started playing while I was looking at this thread.

Haha, spooky!

Yeah, Richard Wright's death is what prompted me to make this thread. It's very sad - may he rest in peace. At least the music lives on.
