oh yes, i do understand him and his friends.

maybe not completely.

almost 40 now, and have been listening since was 12.

but i am still learning from the current members to this day.

not only do i love all of their music,

but i love even more their thoughts on the entire state of humanity.

i believe i got out just before the fate that fell onto Syd.

lovely
my last floyd album to get
was a saucerful of secrets :))
took me 18 year or smth
and after i've read and understood the theosophical key
it dawn on me how literal are spoken the facts there
especially the hidden key of let there be more light and set the controls from the heart of the sun
much love

Re: Syd Barrett was a microcosm of the new America!!
this may be morbid to some, but...

i would either have wanted to be a fly on his wall,

or hope one day someone will show rare footage of him over those last years.

not knowing what his true condition was,

was he in occasional lucid moments where some great philosophical statements were made by him?

or was he merely in a vegetative state the entire time?

He was more functional that the entire US House and Senate.

[link to www.pink-floyd.org]

Barrett's sister recently said that Syd was definitely not mentally ill, neither confined, and that his withdrawing into himself represented his way to overcome the Pink Floyd era. This seems to suggest that Syd showed a progressive and steady recovery from the well-known mental instability of the late Pink Floyd days. This would confirm my opinion that Syd Barrett deliberately resolved to make a clean break with the music biz: an unusual choice in a world where, sooner or later, everybody comes back.

He just told fame to f**k off.
