The late Roger ‘Syd’ Barrett, from Cambridge, was a co-founder of the 1960’s music group ‘Pink Floyd’ and performed on lead guitar and vocals. He also composed many of their songs. He was responsible for inspiring an entire generation of musicians to develop their own indigenous brand of English rock music.

Syd was quintessentially English, penning idiosyncratic songs unique in style and tone.  He had a hugely attractive personality and with his good looks he was difficult to ignore. He was a quick witted clown who kept family and friends laughing at his good natured cheekiness throughout his younger years. Always interested in experimenting with music, he played the recorder, piano, ukulele, Jews harp and guitar all to a good standard.
