Syd Barrett Dead at 60

LONDON-- Syd Barrett, the troubled Pink Floyd co-founder who spent his last years in reclusive anonymity, has died, the band said Tuesday. He was 60.


Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Now theres a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the
Steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger, you legend,
You martyr, and shine!

I wonder how many of the teenage new-Pink-Floyd-t-shirt-from-Wal-Mart-wearing kids know who he is?
