LONDON (AP) - Syd Barrett, the troubled genius who co-founded Pink Floyd but spent his last years in reclusive anonymity, has died, a spokeswoman for the band said Tuesday. He was 60.
The spokeswoman — who declined to give her name until the band made an official announcement — confirmed media reports that he had died. She said Barrett died several days ago, but she did not disclose the cause of death.
This cassette I found as I have been clearing out albums and tapes to convert to CDs and mp3s. I have found a great deal of obscure items such as this jewel, bought on one of my twice-weekly sprees in my music-buying youth.
