Syd’s Birthday

Today would have been Syd’s birthday, born in 1946 to Win and Max Barrett in Cambridge.   To celebrate Syd’s birthday, Lee Harris has written a piece on one of Syd’s songs in our section Stories behind the Songs.  Lee chose the song “Here I Go” written by Syd and recorded in 1969.  Lee embraces in his article how this song celebrates and captures the fun of Syd.  If you want to read how other songs have impacted the life of other artists, please read them in our Stories Behind the Songs section.   For more insight into Syd’s life, take a look at our section on Syd’s Life charting his life before his impactful, but short, career in Pink Floyd and as a solo artist, and afterwards as an artist living in Cambridge.
