Syd left us all for good today. He was 60 and died from complications arising from diabetes. Think I'll listen to Saucerful of Secrets.

When I was a student in London in the 1970s we named our first car after Syd. It was a battered VW Beetle and seemed to symbolise the beat-up, eccentric but totally likeable nature of our Syd.
Floyd post-Syd were probably a better band but never as adventurous or experimental.
Funnily enough just a couple of weeks ago I was looking at a Syd Barrett website and was somewhat shocked to see Syd in his latter years, a bald, overweight middle aged man. But then that's what life does to us all (I just look in the mirror for confirmation!).
You left us years ago Syd but we are still saddened by your ultimate passing.

Hope you find some peace now Syd.
I'm off to listen to "Echoes"

RIP. This ought to liven up Rock'n'Roll Heaven.

Ah, Syd.
What can I say? rest in peace, Syd. I bet there will be lots of mice named Gerald in heaven to keep you company.
