I hope he's found peace now.
That would explain why I heard "Shine On, You Crazy Diamond" like five times today.
What a shame - Floyd is one amazing band, and I think he fueled a lot of their creativity.
Yup. I'll listen to "The Great Gig in the Sky" today for him.
shit, 60's a pretty young age to go. Atleast the man left behind a hell of a lotta great stuff.
yeah, you would have thought all those drugs would have killed him a lot sooner...
RIP, i have never been that real big on Floyd, but it is sad to see people go like that.
It's a really sad thing, I played "See Emily Play" like 40 times today
Watched this vintage footage in his honor today...RIP Syd, his story is undoubtedly one of the most tragic in music.
I was never a big fan of Barrett-era Floyd (too psychedelic for my tastes) but its clear that his influence on the rest of the members carried through to their classic material.
Considering his ongoing mental instability, I'll echo Rose's sentiments and say I hope he's at peace now.
What is so fucking amusing?? Have a little respect!
Because its true. Its a miracle that he didn't go the way of Hendrix and Joplin.
Right on - this is the same thing I was getting at. I suppose I do like some of the Barret stuff though.
I read about it on old school.
It’s a shame
They were all years ahead of their times.
While I was in Driver's Ed this morning, we had 104.3 on (classic rock station) and I was pissed off, because I thought I'd be driving to some Pink Floyd, but no. They had to be gay about it.
This isn't the best thing to read the first time I go on the forum in five days. Oh well, I knew it would happen sometime, he was in really bad shape.
Be that as it may, it sure isn't funny.
yes it is...
I for 1 don't care at all for Sid's music, he may have influenced some of there early work, but Gilmore was truely the saving force behind them. If they didn't get rid of Sid, the band would have faded away along with the rest of the psychedelic acid rock/pop groups of the 60's.
