Syd fades away

I’ve been wanting to write about Pink Floyd for ages. I read Nick Mason’s book recently and enjoyed it (despite Nick mason's very British inability to say anything bad). I love the Floyd despite all their faults. They were the first group I both adored (going to see The Wall in at Earls Court, listening endlessly to Dark Side of the Moon) and rejected (in post-punk fervor, poor tormented rock stars). Now Syd Barrett has died. In the rare picture of the five member Floyd you can see that Syd has already started to fade away. Finally he is gone.
