    and the origin of this photo ? I already knew. Been listening to some of the band's 1st two albums earlier today, sucks what he did with his life. But he indeed was "unique".

    The second link, I think no one could pull off the entire song like him. Heard a remake, but it is not the same.


    The photo itself was sad, but anyone who knows what I am talking about will understand :wavey: Just want to pay homage to him.

    Shine on you crazy diamond.

    (EDIT): Well, I was trying to be subtle, guess we were just supposed to jump in and end any suspense there was. That makes for a short and not too interesting thread.
    Shine On You Crazy Diamond was written about Syd.

    Syd Barrett. "Wish You Were Here" sessions at Abbey Road.

    He died of pancreatic cancer, supposedly due to complications from diabetes.

    Yep, sad thing is the band members did not recognize him.
