RIP: Pink Floyd Founder Syd Barrett (3)

Tuesday, July 11, 2006 by , under

It was confirmed today that Pink Floyd legend Roger Keith (Syd) Barrett died on July 7th of diabetes-related complications. Barrett formed Pink Floyd along with Roger Waters, Rick Wright and Nick Mason back in 1965, naming the band after two of his favourite blues artists, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council. He suffered an LSD-induced breakdown at the peak of his career, which would be the starting point of his gradual descent into anonymity.

Nevertheless, his contribution to music and the music industry is undeniable and will live on forever, as he now truly rests among the stars.
