"His family says it upsets him to discuss the days when he was the spirit of psychedelia, beautiful Syd Barrett, the leader of Pink Floyd. He doesn't recognise himself as the shambling visionary who, during an extended nervous breakdown exacerbated by his drug intake, made two solos LPs, Madcap and Barrett , which are as eternally eloquent as Van Gogh's cornfields. He doesn't answer to his 60s nickname now. He's called Roger Barrett, as he was born in 1946."
Ο κ. Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett, λοιπόν, γεννηθείς το 1946, πιθανόν ο ιδιοφυέστερος μουσικός της ψυχεδέλειας, ιδρυτής των Pink Floyd, ο μελωδός πέρα από τα όρια της τρέλλας, πέθανε στις 7 Ιουλίου, σε ηλικία 60 ετών, ειρηνικά στο σπίτι του.

Wouldn't you miss me?
