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.

Been listening to all the Pink Floyd that I have on the iPod since I heard the news. Although other than "See Emily Play", most of the stuff is more about Syd than by him.

I hate to say it, but I can't believe he made it to 60. RIP, hopefully he is now free of the demons that haunted him during his life.



Dean! Have you been shooting dope into your scrotum? You can tell me! I'm hip!

I'm just wondering your opinions of, in my humble estimation,the best band from Canada in quite awhile.
