Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett, 60, died Friday July 7th, 2006.
BBC News obituary
He was a unique songwriting voice & a special person. I don't know why this has hit me so hard: Syd hasn't recorded in over 30 years, & many years ago I decided that the best thing was not to act like a hunter stalking their prey...let the guy live his life as he chooses, & reporters & fanatics, quit trying to find him! But it hurts like Hell. It hurts.
I'll add back some of his tracks in the next few days...but not right now.
Thank You Syd.
Love & Peace, Clarence
