This day, five years ago, one of the most amazing and brilliant man of all times, died... His name was Roger Keith Barrett, but we all know him best as Syd Barrett.
Syd was a member of the psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd. He was the one who were in the band from the beginning of Pink Floyd with his band mates Roger waters, Richard Wright and Nick Mason. Unfortunately, he was only going to make this one album, "The piper at the gates of dawn", with Pink Floyd, before he was caught up with the drugs.
The reason why I love the music he made, is because it has this crazy sound. He was the leader in the band during their first album, and he wrote most of the songs (10 out of 11!!). Syd were singing about all these everyday things, like "Bike" and "Scarecrow". The songs he made has this kind of childhood-like tunes, and the lyrics is kinda' whimsical. You just gotta love it!!
So to remember the brilliant man....
Wish you were here <3
