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, Jew’s harp and guitar all to a good standard.

He didn't go 'mad' - due tough workloads and betrayal which led to too much of the wrong drugs, left him with some mental problems - which he recovered from.

Yes! BLU RAY!!!!!!!

Thank you

Hello everyone... Has Syd Barett ever had therapy???? Syd was a talented, gifted young man. He founded Pink Floyd and made it famous. In April 1968, Syd was kicked out. The other three architects no longer wanted to be students and wanted to become full-blooded musicians!!! Syd Barett was no longer up to it. Unfortunately, he could no longer play the correct scale. Syd tried, but he didn't manage it. In 1970, with the help of David G., he released 2 solo albums. In 1972, he tried to get something going with the group Stars. Syd wanted to do it, but he couldn't anymore!!!! A sad, painful story for Syd and the whole family... Syd had the wrong friends... He hung out with junkies... Therapy with a psychiatrist could have helped...

(Fantastico il suono di chitarra di Syd in questo brano... ) Video assai triste, con Roger che finge di cantare sulla voce di Barrett... 🙁

the voice is by Syd Barrett no Roger Waters 😉😎 Here David Gilmour in the first 68. Too bad we don't see Syd Barrett.

Pure beatles
