Syd is gone

I just read that Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett, one of the founders of Pink Floyd, died July 7. Another major icon gone and at the relatively young age of 60. Surry's The Madcap Laughs whose call name is Barrett was my tribute to Syd. He was the true Crazy Diamond and the subject of Wish You Were Here as well as parodied in The Wall as Pink. Hope that he is playing that mirrored Telecaster somewhere in the cosmos. Shine on Syd.
