Syd Barrett, one of the founders of Pink Floyd, died a few days ago.

Wish You Were Here - David Gilmour/Roger Waters

So, so you think you can tell heaven from hell,
blue skies from pain
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year
Running over the same old ground
What have we found?
The same old fears
Wish you were here

That is so sad. Diabetes can be managed, but probably it was a real challenge for him and his family, given his state of mind.

I just heard about this today. I turned on the Current and was a bit surprised to hear Shine on Crazy Diamond. Not too surprised. I mean it is the Current. But then after the song Mark Wheat mentioned that Syd Barrett had died. I can't say I was shocked. In some ways I had been expecting this news for the longest time. Still, after all this time the news was rather startling.

Thank you for posting about it.
