Rest In Peace, Syd Barret. Shine on you crazy diamond.
Roger Keith ‘Syd’ Barrett died on July 7th, 2006, of Pancreatic Cancer. He was cremated, and his ashes were given to a friend or a family member. He was the founding member of the progressive rock band, Pink Floyd, and was the lead vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter during the band’s psychedelic years, providing major musical and stylistic direction in their early compositions. He is credited with naming the band, but left the group in April 1968 and was briefly hospitalized amid speculation of mental illness exacerbated by drug use. [x]
