... about this this morning and it makes my day sadder. The genius Syd Barrett has passed away. May he rest in peace.

you shone like the sun;
Shine on you crazy diamond;
Now there's a look in your eyes,
like black holes in the sky."

That is sad news, I hadn't heard untill now, I done a Google search and found that 'they' haven't disclosed the cause, any ideas? Diabetes related maybe....

Diabetes or too much drugs and alcohol during his life, it really doesn't matter. At least we all still have the chance to hear his work.

Indeed. I read on, and apparently it was diabetes related :ohcrap:

Damn.. First I have heard of it. I was away all week with no contact to the outside world. I was going to watch Pink Floyd live at Pompei tonight too.
