    Syd

    Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
    Shine on you crazy diamond.
    Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
    Shine on you crazy diamond.
    You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
    blown on the steel breeze.
    Come on you target for faraway laughter,
    come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
    You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
    Shine on you crazy diamond.
    Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
    Shine on you crazy diamond.
    Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
    rode on the steel breeze.
    Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
    come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!


    see you on the other side Syd

    Agreed. It's very sad.
    RIP Fella.

    Re: Syd

    Wish You Were Here is also another rather appropriate song for this occassion.......albeit not written with Syd in mind.

    Re: Syd

    God bless that crazy wee man, without out his influence many of my speakers would not play out brilliance that pink floyd was, and still is. But look on the bright side (no pun intended) floyd may now finally do some sort of last comemorative gig for Syd.

    Possibly...

    Maybe...

    Please...

    LOL...that'd be nice...but highly unlikely.

    This is PF we're talking about here!

    Re: Syd

    Blimey, I didnt know he'd died. barretts stuff was some of my favourite Floyd and I quite like the madcap laughs album, though I dont think they would have been as big had they kept him, its just sad to see so many influential artists being lost to drugs and alcohol.
    RIP.
