Goodbye, Syd

Posted Jul 11, 2006 in Music.

I've always loved Pink Floyd. I have pretty much everything they've ever done, including the early greats like The Piper at the Gates of Dawn.

Sadly, the driving creative force behind the band's early work has died from complications related to diabetes. Roger “Syd” Barrett was a musical genius, and his work remains brilliant to this day. Shine on, Syd.

    Wasn't sure of his past but was informed that he got into drugs heavily and was pretty burnt out.

    However, the band gave him royalties to the day he died. Show's you how great the band truely is/was both musically and ethically.
