Only the good die young

A man who influenced many great musicians has died at the young age of 60. Syd Barrett, Pink Floyd's inaugural guitarist, helped shape the birth of the band with a quite different musical style than the Floyd we know today. I admire David Gilmore, but Barrett was a unique character in the world of music. I may have to dig out my vinyl collection in tribute.

Shine on you crazy diamond, shine on.
