    Default RIP Sid Barrett

    Wow, I can't believe nobody started a thread for the guy. I hope he's found some peace where he's gone.

    Wasn't there one in the Floyd thread? I don't venture into that one very often.

    RIP.

    RIP to the great talent of Syd Barrett. Never was the biggest Floyd fan, but he sure was talented. Sad...
    In and out. I didn't even make that pun on purpose.

    One of the great talents. Drug obsession ruined a great mind. Poor guy...

    Was it the drugs that killed him? I always wondered if he kept doing the drugs through out his life. 60 years old is still pretty young.....

    I don't think he died from drugs. Last I read he hasn't been doing drugs for quite sometime. I was just commenting on how the use of drugs indeed ended his musical gifts.

    Anybody got a link that gives the cause of death?

    It is with great sadness that I must report the passing of Roger "Syd" Barrett, founder of Pink Floyd. The Syd Barrett Archives join his family and friends in mourning his passing. He was an inspiration to many people, myself included. Shine on Roger... Shine on...

    He passed on Friday July 7th of complications related to diabetes.

    -Stephen
    Musically, not my cup of tea, but another great example of drugs destroying a persons mind. Diabetes is a bitch as well. RIP Syd.

    There was a dedicated thread in the Music Only forum, and it looks like it was consolidated with the Pink Floyd thread here http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/show...304#post624304
