Syd Barrett, the progenitor of Pink Floyd, was announced to have passed away today.
I recommend to anyone to buy the CD “Wouldn’t You Miss Me” – The Best of Syd Barrett (Harvest/EMI 2001). Of course, that’s assuming you already own the seminal work “Piper at the Gates of Dawn” by Pink Floyd – which is essential!
Sadly, Syd’s active contribution to music died long ago, but it is still a sad day to lose someone who was so influential.
Shine on you Crazy Diamond.
