Woah, Syd's Dead

Syd Barrett, troubled genius of Pink Floyd, dead at 60

Syd Barrett, the troubled genius who co-founded Pink Floyd but spent his last years in reclusive anonymity, has died, a spokeswoman for the band said today. He was 60.

*I must point out that the article is incorrect. Syd did not start the band with David Gilmour, he started the band with Mason, Wright, and Roger Waters. Gilmour pretty much replaced him.
sheesh, you'd think they'd get it right.

So play the album "Wish You Were Here" if you have the chance. It was inspired by him afterall.
