Syd Barrett

Sad news that the great Syd Barrett died over the weekend. An enigma, who hadn't recorded any music for over thirty years, he still had a loyal band of fans who loved the whimsy, playfulness and charm of his early Pink Floyd material, and the sparse, stoned weirdness of his solo albums. Much of the solo material was flawed, but it all had a quintessentially English charm to it. Goodbye, Syd. He will be remembered.
