Default Syd Barrett died.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13814051/

Syd was one of the founding members of Pink Floyd. I don't know much about the band's history, but I do know Syd was kicked out of Pink Floyd. Still... I have enjoyed PF for many many years.

I remember reading somewhere that the guy had severe mental issues, guess it was true. Nice to see the rest of the band made sure he got his royalties.

Unhappy Re: Syd Barrett died.

Holy Toledo I didn't even know that until I came to this board! I have been a fan of the Floyd for a good long time. Even though LSD claimed his brain, in his time, the man was brilliant.

RIP Crazy Diamond.

Syd WAS NOT kicked out of the band. Syd had a mental breakdown and was no longer able to perform with the band. David Gilmour was brought in to replace him.

Syd was never forgotten by the band. The song "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" was written about Syd by Roger Waters.
